Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Emily Sellwood and Alfred Tennyson first knew each other as children in Lincolnshire, but were not married until nearly 30 years later, in the year Tennyson became Poet Laureate. This biography of Emily explores what kept them apart, and what eventually brought them together, and it discusses the life of a Victorian wife who was determined to be fully involved in work of the man she loved. Drawing on much unpublished material, the author depicts Emily's character and personality in detail, and presents the story of a remarkable family as well as a remarkable woman.

About the Author:

Born in London, Ann Thwaite spent the war years in New Zealand, returning to complete her education at Queen Elizabeth's, Barnet, and St Hilda's College, Oxford. She has lived in Tokyo, Benghazi and Nashville, Tennessee. She has lectured in many countries, but most of her life has been spent as a writer, and she is now settled in Norfolk with her husband, the poet Anthony Thwaite. She is an Oxford D.Litt, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Her previous biographies are Waiting for the Party, a life of Frances Hodgson Burnett; Edmund Gosse (winner of the Duff Cooper Award, 1985); A. A. Milne (Whitbread Biography of the Year in 1990); and Emily Tennyson: The Poet's Wife.$$$Ann Thwaite celebrated her seventieth birthday in the week of the publication of Glimpses of the Wonderful, which she says is her final biography. She plans now to use her biographical skills on her own life, in a book tentatively titled 'My Side of the Story'.
