With neither the strength nor the resources to counter rejection, unable to sell his paintings or publish his books, Branwell became a spectre in the Bronte story, in pathetic contrast with the astonishing achievements of Charlotte, Emily and Anne.

Description :  Philip Ashley, el narrador de esta novela, es un joven huérfano que ha sido criado por su primo Ambrose, un terrateniente de Cornualles veinte años mayor que él, en una gran casa aislada, de rutinas amables e incontestadas, sin conflictos y sin mujeres. Cuando el primo debe viajar a Italia por razones de salud, conoce a una mujer, Rachel, una pariente lejana educada en Florencia, viuda de un conde que murió en un duelo y la dejó cubierta de deudas. Se casa con ella y poco después muere súbitamente. «Juré que todo lo que Ambrose hubiera pagado en dolor y sufrimiento se lo devolvería a la mujer que los había causado», se dice Philip al conocer la noticia. Pero apenas han pasado unas semanas y Rachel se presenta en Cornualles… y esa animosidad irracional que el joven sentía por ella se va convirtiendo poco a poco en una fascinación incontrolable que no disminuye a medida que las circunstancias de la muerte de su primo se revelan cada vez más sospechosas. Mi prima Rachel (1951) es una gran novela psicológica, llena de suspense, en la que Daphne du Maurier exploró, como en Rebeca, la influencia fantasmal en una casa de una figura ausente. Es también un sutil estudio de lo que un hombre cree que es una mujer y del accidentado viaje que dan los prejuicios cuando se enfrentan a una realidad inesperada.

Author : Daphne du Maurier
Genre :  Literary  Books  Fiction & Literature  Historical  Mysteries & Thrillers 
Price :  $8.99
Release Date :  2016-11-30
Description :  All’inizio dell’Ottocento, Mary Yellan, giovane orfana di belle speranze e di avvenente aspetto, giunge al Jamaica Inn, una locanda tra i picchi e le scogliere della Cornovaglia, terra, all’alba del nuovo secolo, di pietre e ginestre rachitiche, di pirati e predoni. Dopo la morte della madre, l’unica parente rimasta alla ragazza è la zia Patience, proprietaria della locanda insieme col marito Joss Merlyn. Nel viaggio attraverso la brughiera selvaggia della Cornovaglia, Mary ha immaginato il Jamaica Inn come un accogliente rifugio, una dimora degna di quella zia che, da bambina, le appariva leggiadra come una fata con le sue cuffie ornate di nastri e le sue gonne di seta. Il suo sgomento è grande, dunque, quando scopre che la taverna è un covo di vagabondi, bracconieri, furfanti e ladri della peggior specie, e che della zia Patience, giovane donna vanitosa e piena di vita, non è rimasto nulla. Al suo posto c’è una povera creatura sfiorita, terrorizzata da un uomo gigantesco e brutale: suo marito, Joss Merlyn. Mary Yellan scapperebbe subito da quell’edificio buio e malmesso, dove nessun avventore oserebbe mai mettere piede, se non fosse per lei un punto d’onore difendere la zia dalle angherie di Joss, e se la sfida con quell’uomo violento, sorta forse dalla segreta, inconfessabile affinità sempre esistente tra caratteri forti, non la solleticasse. Quella taverna, dove si danno appuntamento i peggiori sgherri della Cornovaglia, è soltanto il porto di traffici illegali tra la costa e il Devon o è qualcosa di peggio, qualcosa che oltrepassa la stessa enigmatica figura di Joss? E che cosa ha a che fare la stanza chiusa in fondo al corridoio con i carri che si fermano ogni notte nel cortile della locanda? Romanzo in cui personaggi violenti e, insieme, fragili si muovono sullo sfondo di un paesaggio selvaggio, Jamaica Inn è un vero thriller di alta scuola, pieno di suspense e di inaspettati colpi di scena, una delle opere più riuscite dell’autrice di Rebecca, la prima moglie. «Jamaica Inn si divora dalla prima all’ultima pagina». The Times «Jamaica Inn è forse il romanzo storico più perfetto che sia stato mai scritto». Good Guide Book

Berättaren är en ung, fattig kvinna som gifter sig med den gåtfulle och stilige Max de Winther och flyttar in på godset Manderley. Där försvarar på ett sjukligt vis hushållerskan Mrs Danvers minnet av de Winthers första hustru Rebecca, som dött i en tragisk olycka ett år tidigare. Rebecca, en modern skräckberättelse och en detaljstudie över besatthet, räknas till de stora engelska romanklassikerna. Här i översättning av Dagny Henschen-Harrie och Hilda Holmberg, och med ett nyskrivet förord av litteratur- och skräckvetaren Mattias Fyhr. DAPHNE DU MAURIER [1907-1989] var en engelsk romanförfattare och dramatiker. Hennes berättelser utspelar sig ofta i Cornwall i sydvästra England, där du Maurier själv levde större delen av sitt liv. Hennes mest berömda verk är romanen Rebecca och novellen Fåglarna, som båda även blivit klassiska skräckfilmer av Alfred Hitchcock. »Rebecca kan bäst beskrivas som en psykologisk thriller med övernaturliga inslag och Daphne du Maurier som en mästare inom genren. Språket är så förtätat att det så gott som binder fast läsaren vid sidorna och författaren använder sig ofta av helt briljanta metaforer.« | Elisabeth Brännström, Tidningen Kulturen »Rebecca är en rysare så freudiansk att det känns fel att inte läsa den utsträckt på en schäslong. Den frammanar och förstorar upp de unheimlich mardrömmar som hemsöker varje klassresenär.« | Rasmus Landström, ETC »Spännande, läskig &amp; lysande!« Betyg 5 av 5| Jennies boklista

Alfred Hitchcock använde berättelsen för sin oförglömliga film, och det är inte enda gången du Mauriers visuellt suggestiva scenarion blivit klassisk skräckfilm. I detta urval med du Mauriers allra bästa noveller ingår även Titta inte nu (filmatiserad av Nicolas Roeg), samt Inte efter midnatt, De blå linserna och Äppelträdet.

I mitt tycke lyckas hon i Fåglarna bättre än Hitchcock med att skapa en krypande oroskänsla som växer i takt med att fåglarna hopar sig, cirklar runt för att till sist gå till attack.« | Tobias Magnusson, Fria Tidningar »Väldigt, väldigt obehaglig och med snygga psykologiska effekter.« | Petras Bokblogg »Det här är en sån novell som aldrig helt kommer gå att skaka av sig.« | Marcus Regnander, Istället för bokcirkel, om Fåglarna »Daphne du Maurier skriver med en enastående fantasi, som gång på gång framkallar både skräck och medkänsla.« | The Observer

42 Mia cugina Rachele

Author : Daphne du Maurier
Genre :  Literary  Books  Fiction & Literature  Mysteries & Thrillers 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2017-10-10
Description :  Cornovaglia, metà Ottocento. Rimasto orfano a diciotto mesi, dopo la morte improvvisa dei genitori, Philip Ashley viene cresciuto dal cugino Ambrose, uno scapolo impenitente e non privo di una buona dose di misoginia. Per anni il loro ménage familiare scorre sereno e tranquillo e vano risulta qualsiasi tentativo da parte di amici e conoscenti di spingere Ambrose verso le gioie domestiche del matrimonio. Grande è, perciò, lo stupore di Philip nel ricevere una lettera da Firenze, dove da qualche anno Ambrose si reca a svernare per motivi di salute, in cui il cugino gli comunica di aver sposato una lontana parente, la cugina Rachele, vedova di un nobile italiano che è stato ucciso in un duello, lasciandola con un mucchio di debiti e una grande villa vuota. Quando le lettere di Ambrose dall’Italia assumono i toni sempre più confusi e drammatici di un uomo spaventato, lo sconcerto di Philip si trasforma in un’apprensione tale da spingerlo a raggiungere al più presto la città toscana. A Firenze, però, lo aspetta un’amara realtà: Ambrose è deceduto in seguito a un male che lo ha consumato in breve tempo, e Rachele è partita subito dopo il funerale, chiudendo la villa e portando via con sé tutti gli effetti personali del defunto. Rientrato in Cornovaglia, Philip si macera nell’odio nei confronti della cugina Rachele, che si figura come una creatura grottesca e mostruosa capace, davanti al corpo di Ambrose, di afferrare le sue cose, infilare tutto nei bauli e sgusciare via col fare di un serpente. Ma ogni certezza vacilla quando Rachele giunge all’improvviso in Cornovaglia per restituire a Philip gli averi di Ambrose. Intenzionato ad accoglierla con freddo cinismo, se non con aperta ostilità, il giovane si ritrova, turbato e stupefatto, dinanzi a una donna molto diversa da quella che ha agitato le sue veglie e i suoi sogni per mesi. Ma chi si cela, davvero, dietro quella affascinante vedova dai lineamenti belli e regolari e dagli occhi grandi? Una donna che ha perduto l’uomo che amava o una potenziale assassina a caccia di denaro? Con&#xa0;Mia cugina Rachele&#xa0;Daphne du Maurier, maestra indiscussa di suspense, torna alle sinistre ed eccitanti atmosfere di&#xa0;Rebecca, la prima moglie, consegnando al lettore un romanzo dal ritmo serrato che, attraverso personaggi magistralmente descritti, dipana la sua trama in un crescendo di inquietudine. "Sin dalla prima pagina il lettore si trova nell'oscura e malinconica atmosfera di Rebecca, La prima moglie". The New York Times

43 La casa sull'estuario

Author : Daphne du Maurier
Genre :  Literary  Books  Fiction & Literature  Historical  Sci-Fi & Fantasy 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2017-12-19
Description :  Dick Young è un giovane inglese con un modesto e banale impiego in una casa editrice londinese e un'ambiziosa moglie americana che lo vorrebbe a New York, a lavorare nella fiorente impresa editoriale di suo fratello. Un giorno Dick viene invitato a cena dall'amico storico dei tempi di Cambridge, Magnus Lane, divenuto nel frattempo un luminare della biofisica. Durante la cena Magnus accenna quasi di sfuggita alla possibilità di poter ospitare l'amico e la sua famiglia a Kilmarth, nella casa in Cornovaglia ereditata dai genitori. Un'offerta allettante. Il miraggio di lunghe, incantevoli giornate passate a poltrire in un giardino o a veleggiare in una baia è certamente preferibile, per Dick, alla prospettiva di un fastidioso trasferimento a New York. Dopo qualche bicchiere di brandy, Magnus raddoppia la sua offerta: nel laboratorio di Kilmarth ricavato nella vecchia lavanderia seminterrata, Dick potrebbe sperimentare qualcosa di straordinario: una droga, ottenuta mescolando una certa pianta con delle sostanze chimiche, che non trasporta come la mescalina o lsd in un luogo fantastico popolato di meravigliosi fiori esotici, ma in un mondo reale, fatto di esseri altrettanto reali: il passato. Soggiogato dalla personalità di Magnus, Dick accetta. Una volta nella casa sull'estuario, nel macabro laboratorio popolato di embrioni sotto vetro e di teste di scimmia, beve la pozione preparata da Magnus e si ritrova nella Cornovaglia del XIV secolo, al cospetto di dame e cavalieri, spettatore invisibile di drammatiche vicende di nobili famiglie, di intrighi e aperte rivalità, di amori e segreti inconfessabili. La scoperta di Magnus Lane potrebbe cambiare le sorti del mondo se, nell'uso prolungato della sua pozione, passato e presente non cominciassero a sovrapporsi in una pericolosa spirale, e il gioco del tempo non si mutasse inesorabilmente in dramma.

44 La posada Jamaica

Author : Daphne du Maurier
Genre :  Classics  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2018-03-14
Description :  Daphne du Maurier explicaba en una nota preliminar a <i>La posada Jamaica</i> (1936) que el establecimiento al que alude el título aún seguía en pie y que la novela era el producto de sus fantasías sobre cómo habría sido ciento veinte años antes. La acción arranca precisamente con un recuerdo clave de la imaginación romántica: un carruaje que atraviesa los páramos de Cornualles es zarandeado por la tormenta y en él una joven huérfana, Mary Yellan, se dirige al encuentro del único familiar que le queda, su tía Patience, que junto con su marido regenta una lóbrega y aislada posada de mala fama... a la cual el cochero apenas se atreve a acercarse.<br /><br />Las tormentas, los paisajes desolados, los mares que rugen, los naufragios provocados, los bandidos y dos mujeres atrapadas en un rincón de Inglaterra sin otra ley que la de la violencia, componen la atmósfera de esta excelente novela, un auténtico clásico moderno que mezcla la fascinación por la oscuridad con una denuncia de la brutalidad doméstica. El terror y la agonía de habitar un mundo dominado por hombres sin escrúpulos -pero a quienes también visitan sus fantasmas- se unen a la recreación de un mundo donde la moral aparece y desaparece como un espectro. Fue llevada al cine por Alfred Hitchcock en 1939.
