Breve biografia
Edith Nesbit was born in London, England. She was educated at home and also attended a boarding school in France. In 1880, at age 19, she married Hubert Bland, a journalist and economist, with whom she had five children. The couple were both socialists and became co-founders of the Fabian Society in 1884. They published a couple of works together as Fabian Bland. After Bland's death, Edith remarried in 1917 to Thomas Terry Tucker, a marine engineer. Under the name E. Nesbit, she wrote and collaborated on more than 60 books of children's literature, including novels, collections of short stories, plays, poetry, and picture books. Among her best-known books are The Railway Children (1906), which has been adaptated into films several times; The Story of the Treasure Seekers (1898); and The Wouldbegoods (1899).

Recensioni

When young Philip Haldane builds a play city out of odds and ends, the fantastic creation comes to life, and he and new stepsister Lucy are magically transported into it. Now they must try to save the Magic City by fulfilling an ancient prophecy--despite a mysterious adversary determined to steal their glory for herself. How Philip and Lucy come to forge a friendship and together triumph over impending disaster makes for a riveting read.

More cheerful Edwardian romps with the Bastable kids, this time in the Kent countryside. You can tell that E Nesbit was also a writer of quite scary ghost stories for adults here. It comes through in "The Tower of Mystery", halfway up which someone was entombed. You can't see him now, but once there was only glass round him... "Hunting the Fox" is a bit macabre too, and "The Dragon's Teeth" mentions skeletons twice in a jokey-scarey way.
A good example of her adult ghost stories is "Mansize in Marble".… (altro)

Having a lovely time re-reading all my E Nesbits, starting with this as it's the first (1899). It's probably the first re-read since childhood, so I was appalled by Chapter 9, "The G B" (generous benefactor). The irony is that the man they apply to for money is not portrayed as a generous benefactor at all, but in a slyly stereotypical way as the "archetypal" Jewish moneylender. As a kid I would have not got the references at all, but now they leap out at you. Edith, I'm ashamed of you, even for those days.
The rest of the story is a wonderful, funny romp, and very enjoyable, apart of course from the "N" word at the end.
I'd never say don't read a book because of its archaic, perhaps unintentional racism, but do put your mental filters on.

I do enjoy almost anything written by E. Nesbit, and 90% of this book is amusing and interesting. Except for the racist chapter that is all bout the same kind of stereotypical racism that Peter Pan has. Plenty of funny moments and clever turns of phrase.
