Om författaren


(eng) I have undone the split for Hugh Walpole. The only other Hugh Walpole listed by LoC is Hugh R Walpole, b.1905 who wrote books on language and semantics. I can see no works on this page that seem to be by a separate author. I can't find anything about Christina, but Walpole wrote many short stories and that is probably one of them - not worth a split for that.

My direct knowledge of this prolific author is negligible so, if I have missed something, please correct the split and accept my apologies.

Judith Paris is the second volume in the family chronicle of the Herries family, another big book of well over 600 pages. However, this isn't felt as the book reads swiftly. The second volume is not as impressive as the Sturm-und-Drang character of the first volume, but still a major, broad-sweeping story. It reads seemingly so fast because of the tremendous pace of the story. Almost every chapter represents a jump in time of about ten years.

The opening chapter is surprisingly well able to bring back the memories of Volume One, which I read more than 10 years ago. It opens with a classical King's drama of a newly born baby in a castle surrounded by persished family. Subsequent chapters tell of her maturing, and her tempestuous marriage to the wild George Paris, a story that remotely mirrors that of her father, who is a presence looming over the first half of the book.

The second part of the book also introduces and connects to the various other family members and branches of the Herries family, which is a bit confusing, because it wasn't part of the first volume. As I was reading an ebook, the family tree diagram at the back of the book wasn't clear, but would have been very useful.

While the first volume, Rogue Herries was set against the historical backdrop of the Jacobite succession, particularly the 'Old Pretender', the second volume introduces romance in the form of various references to the Romantic poets Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, as part of the story is set in the Lake District, and later, more dramatically, reflects how the French Revolution was felt across the Channel.

The sweep of the story, the fascinating backdrop and the magnificent writing style of Hugh Walpole make Judith Paris a very interesting historic novel to pick up.

I found this novel to be bitingly funny while also drawing a devastating portrait of life in a closed community where people recognize they are being very petty, but cannot bring themselves to rise above their own self-important impulses. I read this shortly after reading Antonia White's Frost in May which is about a girlhood spent in a Catholic boarding school and the similarities are striking. People can be so mean-spirited and those, like Mr. Traill, who are not mean-spirited come across as naive and perhaps not too bright. I think the ending actually works well. All along, Mr. Perrin is shown to have a positive motivation, but he cannot communicate easily with others and so he feels himself to be an outsider. His final action reveals the truth of his character and fits well with what we have learned about him earlier. Walpole's description of the landscape also is very well done.… (mer)

This collection really grew on me. Walpole touched some places with me where I felt he must understand just how I feel. Some of the stories were truly frightening while others were just melancholy or quietly joyful. All were well written and captivating and not all of the same character, quite a variety in the end. A very good read.

Final volume of the "Jeremy" series, set entirely at his boarding school, Crale.
I preferred the two earlier volumes: there's an awful lot of rugby and squabbles, "honour of the House" and incipent schoolboy crushes.
The child Jeremy we met in previous books- his dog, learning how the world works, the now teetering on manhood....indeed, we get hints of his future career as a rugby player, that he goes to fight in France.....
