Lyhyt elämäkerta
Born Mary Annette Beauchamp in Sydney, Australia. Married first to Count Henning August von Arnim-Schlagenthin, then to Francis, 2nd Earl Russell. Australia was the setting of the family's vacation home, and when she was three years old, they returned to England. After her first husband's death in 1910, she lived in Switzerland, England, and the USA, and entertained a large circle of literary and society friends. She produced some 20 novels, semi-autobiographical works, and memoirs, beginning with Elizabeth and her German Garden (1898), and including The Enchanted April (1922), which was adapted as a Broadway play in 1925; a successful film in 1992; a Tony Award-nominated stage play in 2003; a musical play in 2010; and a serial on BBC Radio 4 in 2015.

Análisis de la capacidad autodestructiva del amor. "El amor la había hecho miserable, pues en el amor se escondía el miedo a herir al amado". El amado aquí es un depredador egoísta, cruel y controlador. La autora expone con objetividad casi sarcástica las reflexiones de depredador y presa.

I'm on a spree of clearing out my bookshelf, reading the things I never got around to reading. This is one that I am going to get rid of, not because it didn't have much to say, it was an exploration of an abusive marriage and was the precursor to Rebecca. Many people say that Daphne du Maurier ripped off this book, but I disagree. The beginnings of both Vera and Rebecca are very similar, but where Rebecca goes, Vera evades.

Vera is deeply psychological and deeply analytical. Elizabeth von Arnim is known for The Enchanted April, written the year after this was written, and deviates so far from the themes in this book. Vera is the bridge between Wuthering Heights and Rebecca, but unfortunately, I do not think it is as well known as the other two for the reason that there is not much of a plot, and has a disappointing and anticlimactic ending. Also, the antagonist has the same birthday as me. This is a personal attack.… (lisätietoja)

Such a lovely book. I am a fan of Elizabeth, and this is the second time I've read "April." I'm a fair deal older than the first time I read it, so I saw the story with a different perspective this time. I enjoyed the passages describing the house and the garden and the scenery as much, if not more, as the development of the characters. My cynical self gave an eye roll as each person's story reached a happy ending, but my I-want-to-believe self rolled with the punches, choosing to believe that a beautiful place can make one's life more beautiful.… (lisätietoja)

This one grabbed me on the very first day with its beauty and clever turns of phrasing. The characters each existed very separately from all the others, and their journey towards the conclusion makes almost perfect sense. What a wonderful book to keep company with for a few days!
