GEORGE DU MAURIER TRILBY PDF

Shelves: fiction , art , classics , british , theatre One day after a long session shelf-diving on Goodreads, I came upon the title of Trilby by DuMaurier. I was pleased to discover my local library had a copy, and placed it on hold. Over a year later, I received notice that it had come in. It was a first edition in the original, now torn, binding and cover. It had apparently been removed from the shelves for restitching.

What a treasure it is, with wood block prints of DuMauriers characters, Taffy, Billie, Trilby, and the infamous Svengali. A successful cartoonist must capture in a line a frame of mind and a personal characteristic. DuMaurier succeeds well enough in both the drawings and the writing for this novel, and in several cases captures the essence of character, if not in a word, then in a paragraph.

She might have lived in guilty splendor has she chosen, but her wants were few. Like an amateur, in short—a distinguished amateur who is too proud to sell his pictures, but willingly gives one away now and then to some highly valued and much admiring friend. As for Little Billee, the young and talented painter who was wont to die of love for the woman who was to come under the spell of Svengali: Little Billee was small and slender, about twenty or twenty-one, and had a straight white forehead veined with blue, large dark-blue eyes, delicate regular features, and coal-black hair.

He was also very graceful and well built, with very small hands and feet…And in his winning and handsome face there was just a faint suggestion of some possible very remote Jewish ancestor—just a tinge of that strong, sturdy, irrepressible, indomitable, indelible blood which is such priceless value in diluted homeopathic doses, like dry white Spanish wine called montijo, which is not meant to be taken pure; but without a judicious admixture of which no sherry can go round the world and keep its flavor intact…Fortunately for the world, and especially for ourselves, most of us have in our veins at least a minim of that precious fluid, whether we know it or show it or not.

Tant pis pour les autres! Well, not—not often—not in words and on my knees and with my hands together, you know! What is it but praying when you try and bear up after losing all you cared to live for?

And very good praying too! There can be prayers without words just as well as songs I suppose; and Svengali used to say that songs without words are the best! It has been in circulation for nearly years because it is a classic, and it is one you might want to have a look at one day, to see what inspired all the follow-on art: the music and plays and fashion and film and other stories.

To bolster his aristocratic image he added "Du Maurier" to his name. By , he had six children, but returned to France to escape his domestic responsibilities, and worked until his death in as a schoolmaster. Taking up inventing instead, in Louis married Ellen, daughter of a notorious regency courtesan, Mary-Anne Clarke. The grandchild of a Frenchman who had fled to England and the son of an Englishwoman exiled by society to France, George learned English and French simultaneously--it is no accident, then, that his novels embody the motif of split-personality. To enable Louis to continue his scientific studies which never amounted to much in terms of financial success , the Du Mauriers returned to Paris, living in various houses and apartments in the tranquil suburb of Passy between and From his schoolroom window at the Pension Froussard, George must have watched in awe as street fighting ushered in the revolution that deposed the "Citizen-Monarch," Louis Philippe. In , having failed his Latin paper, George Du Maurier did not graduate, but his father quickly arranged for his son to complete his education by studying chemistry at the Berbeck Chemical Laboratory, University College, London.
