9780812218367: Daphne du Maurier, Haunted Heiress (Personal Takes)

Auerbach examines the writer of depth and recklessness now largely known only as the author of Rebecca, looking at the way her sharp-edged fiction, with its brutal and often perverse family relationships, has been softened in film adaptations of her work. She reads both du Maurier's life in her writings, and the sensibility of a vanished class and time that haunts the fringes of our own age.

From the Publisher:

"Daphne du Maurier, Haunted Heiress" is the first volume in Penn Press's new series, "Personal Takes," in which noted critics write about the persistent hold particular writers, artists, or cultural phenomena have had on their imaginations.

From the Author:

"My experience with Daphne du Maurier has always been the same. I devour her, leave her, and vaguely decide that she satisfied some immature neurotic need in me that I no longer have. Then some years later I read her again and I fall into her world. . . . She's a complex, powerful, unique writer, so unorthodox that no critical tradition, from formalism to feminism, can digest her."-from Chapter 1
