Y where Roger an Englishman has just spent a year learning German During his last hour before returning to England the two confess their feelings and become secretly e. Despite the horrid title this is one of the loveliest books I ve read Really Von Arnim or her publisher came up with some nice titles The Enchanted April The Solitary Summer to name a couple But they must have not put forth the effort on this one which is a shameBut the title is at least descriptive It is an epistolary novel containing the correspondence from Fraulein Schmidt to Mr Anstruther What makes it different from most other epistolary novels is that you read only the letters from one person Fraulein Schmidt Which is just as well because you will immediately gather that Fraulein Schmidt s letters are some of the most beautiful pieces of prose recorded on paper while Mr Anstruther s letters must be much less worthy of praiseBefore reading this I had decided that I didn t like Von Arnim s fiction as well as her autobiographical work I was wrong It is her first person voice that I am in love with I m sure this novel contains items of autobiographical nature however it is undoubtedly fiction But what a joy I can t recommend this one highly enough Be forewarned that there are some terribly frustrating parts full of heartache and heartbreak But in the end one is happy to have felt it and lived through it and possibly even look back with gratitude after time as healed one s wounds than to never have felt anything at allThis should be just out at Gutenberg and soon out at Girlebooks the text was a proofreading project I did with Marc at freeliteratureorg

Elizabeth von Arnim è 4 characters

Ngaged Rose Marie's letters filled with effusions of life and nature also chronicle the relationship of these two characters through the year following their engagemen. Don t be put off by the unromantic title this is a gem of a book It consists entirely of one young woman s letters to her friend and would be lover Mr Anstruther And they are delightful letters In true Von Arnim style the book overflows with glorious descriptions of every day things I don t know any other author who can make an apple or a coffee pot sound so wonderfully romantic or describe the beauty of the first snows so perfectly that one almost expects to find snowflakes on their shoulders But it s not all about inanimate things Her conversations with family and friends are particularly witty and several times I laughed out loud There are deeper philosophies too like the futility and meanness of trying to change the person you love This book will make you feel happy to be alive

    I always feel somehow as if I'd simultaneously dived to the darkest depths and done nothing than lay in a garden on a summer's day when I read von Arnim Her work is the most insistent drumbeat for women's independence and for extending women freedom and personhood I've read while at the same time it can also be a small voice self deprecating and with a wise smile swearing she is foolish and worthless and best left alone no please
