Edwardian Literature


Since we love anything of the Edwardian Era nature, I know we enjoy their literature too.

So with that thought in mind, I would like to begin this thread with this delightful book--"Pollyanna" written by Eleanor H. Porter. As you all may know, her story is about an orphaned little girl who is taken in by her Aunt Polly Harrington, who owns the town of Harrington. Pollyanna not only has a cheery optimistic outlook on life; she also loves to play the Glad Game, a game her late father, a minister, taught her to play. She is always quoting him to her fellow townfolk of friends, but when she is around her Aunt [sign in to see URL] is forbidden to mention him.

I learned, as I watched Disc 2 of this David Swift Film Pollyanna that introduced the then 13-year-old Hayley Mills in the title role to us. That it was actually published in [sign in to see URL] Miss Porter may have began writing her above book sometime in 1912.

Re: Edwardian Literature


One of my favorite Edwardian writers was Gene Stratton-Porter - his Freckles and Girl of the Limberlost are still wonderful on a cold January day.

Re: Edwardian Literature


Gene Stratton-Porter was actually Geneva Stratton-Porter and he was a she. I've heard that the Limberlost swamp she wrote about was a real place in Indiana near her house.

I wonder if the two authors were related though?

What was that piece, a book? Can we still find and buy it, and what was it about?

Re: Edwardian Literature


Since Lucy Maud Montgomery was an Edwardian Era author, surely her works like: "Anne of Green Gables"; "Road To Avonlea"; and "Emily of New Moon" series of novels be counted here. Wouldn't they? emoticon

In one the latter series of EONM novels, Emily Byrd Starr, experiences a premonitive-type dream about a similar ship like Titanic, that strikes an iceberg and sinks. I'll see if I can find it, and then I'll share with you the story. OK?

Re: Edwardian Literature


I'm not sure that I've read much Edwardian-era literature, but I do love...

The Secret Garden, by F.H. Burnett.

The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame.

Two of my most favourite stories.
