Elizabeth Arnim and Her German Garden


May 16th.-The garden is the place I go to for refuge and shelter, not the house. In the house are duties and annoyances, servants to exhort and admonish, furniture, and meals; but out there blessings crowd round me at every step-it is there that I am sorry for the unkindness in me, for those selfish thoughts that are so much worse than they feel; it is there that all my sins and silliness are forgiven, there that I feel protected and at home, and every flower and weed is a friend and every tree a lover.-from Elizabeth and Her German GardenFirst published anonymously in 1898, this beautiful chronicle of languid days spent in a rejuvenating Italian garden was a tremendous bestseller at the turn of the century, its cheerful satire and fresh charm endearing it to millions of readers. The first work of its author, the Countess Elizabeth von Arnim, it would form the basis of her extraordinary popularity as one of the most admired literary figures in Europe and "one of the three finest wits of her day."British novelist ELIZABETH VON ARNIM (1866-1941) wrote numerous books, including The Solitary Summer (the sequel to Elizabeth and Her German Garden) and the work she is best known for, Enchanted April.

Elizabeth Von Arnim The Enchanted April


Driven to action by the dreariness of their lives in London, two not-quite friends, in the hopes of finding renewal, plan to rent a medieval Italian castle for a month. They are joined by two other women, a socialite and a dowager, each also seeking a remedy for their dissatisfactions. As the quartet eventually (though not necessarily gracefully) settles in together, they share the beauty and joy of their springtime palace, and each becomes reacquainted with the self they had forgotten. Whether or not the enchantment can carry into their lives and loves in the "real" world is the question. The basis for the film, of the same name, this is a classic to cherish.British novelist ELIZABETH VON ARNIM (1866-1941) wrote numerous books, including Elizabeth and Her German Garden and The Solitary Summer.

Iwona Eberle Eve with a Spade


Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Zurich (Englisches Seminar), language: English, abstract: Women have been closely associated with gardens: for a perceived similarity to their 'nature', for the garden's connection to the domestic sphere, and, not least, for their connection by the 'hortus conclusus' motif, referring back to the Bible. This connection became even stronger in 19th century England. In the wake of the general gardening rage it became possible for women to pursue gardening as a career. Women began to emerge as competent authors of gardening books, and in imaginative literature, too, women in particular showed no restraint in declaring their passion for the garden. The most important among them was Elizabeth von Arnim (1866-1941), an Australian-born British novelist. In her bestselling novels "Elizabeth and Her German Garden" (1898), as well as in the two sequels "The Solitary Summer" (1899) and "The Pious Pilgrimage" (1901), the autobiographical heroine Elizabeth enjoys ecstatic, creative freedom in her Pomeranian garden.This thesis explores the relationship between gardens and their representation in literature, the relationship between women and gardens in the 19th century, and the function of the garden for the main character and narrator in works by writer Elizabeth von Arnim. In von Arnim's works, the garden is a protect...

Carmela Giustiniani Chiamatemi Elizabeth. Vita e opere di Elizabeth von Arnim


Carmela Giustiniani, studiosa dei classici della letteratura e membro della Elizabeth von Arnim Society, ha elaborato uno splendido racconto biografico che, tra gli avvenimenti della vita reale e le vicende narrate nei romanzi, ripercorre l'intero arco dell'esistenza di Elizabeth von Arnim (1866-1941). Ricostruendo la figura della scrittrice britannica, le riconosce e restituisce quella centralità che ebbe nella scena letteraria e mondana del suo tempo. Tracciando questo percorso, infatti, l'autrice lascia emergere la vera anima di Elizabeth von Arnim, la quale, con tocco lieve e sorriso malinconico, rivela una modernità sottile, celata dietro una patina di convenzione costruita ad arte, e una spiccata profondità che, agli occhi del lettore più attento, va ben oltre la leggerezza che generalmente le viene attribuita.
