About this title

Synopsis:

Elizabeth and Her German Garden was the first book published by author Elizabeth Von Arnim. Originally published in 1898, the semi-autobiographical novel written about a rural idyll became a highly successful book which was subsequently reprinted twenty-one times within its first year. This witty and sacrcastic novel has kept the attention of readers for over a century, and once you read this title for the first time, you will be unable to stop rereading it for many years to come.

From the Publisher:

"May 7th--There were days last winter when I danced for sheer joy out in my frost-bound garden in spite of my years and children. But I did it behind a bush, having due regard for the decencies..." Elizabeth's uniquely witty pen records each season in her beloved garden, where she escapes from the stifling routine of indoors: from servants, meals, domestic routine--and the presence of her overbearing husband. In her introduction, Elizabeth Jane Howard observes: "Elizabeth von Arnim went on to write some very good novels, but "Elizabeth and Her German Garden," its more rhapsodic passages nicely balanced by her acute and sometimes very funny perceptions about her family and friends, has a freshness, a freakish charm, an irrepressible energy that springs straight from the very source of her personality."
