review The Adventures of Elizabeth in Rügen review The Adventures of Elizabeth in Rügen 108 Free download Ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ä Elizabeth von Arnim In diesem berühmten Reiseroman veröffentlichte Elizabeth von Arnim ihre hinreißenden Erlebnisse und bezaubernden Naturbeobachtungen auf der Insel Rügen Mit ihrem unvergleichlichen Erzähltalent entwirft sie ein prä. I am on an Elizabeth von Arnim kick Five novels read and something like 12 to go What got me started was Vera and that was an incredibly good book and then I read The Enchanted April After that I was hooked and off to the races with The Caravaners and then Elizabeth and Her German Garden and then Expiation They were all different enough from each other to stimulate but I am beginning to see some stylistic elements in her novels that are trademarks of hersTo wit here the protagonist s coachman August has left his coach with Elizabeth in it behind while he rides his horse this is circa 1900 up front unaware the coach car has been disengaged for an hour or so before he realizes things are mighty uiet back there I guess he prefers to stare ahead for prolonged durations He finally realizes he has left Elizabeth and her maid Gertrud in the dust and he hysterically rides back to fetch them And so there is this exchange between him and a small crowd of villagers who have gathered I guess to provide aid and comfort to Elizabeth Finally continued August not to be stopped in his excited account finally by the mercy of Providence the map used by the gracious one fell out I knew it would as a peasant was passing He called to me he pointed to the road I pulled up I turned round and what did I see What I then saw I shall never no never forget no not if my life should continue to be a hundred He put his hand on his heart and gasped The crowd waited breathless I turned around continued August and I saw nothing But you said you would never forget what you saw objected a dissatisfied looking man August Never never shall I forget it Man Yet you saw nothing at all August Nothing nothing Never will I forget it Man If you saw nothing you cannot forget it persisted the dissatisfied man August I say I cannot it is what I say Man It is impossible to forget that which has not been called out the dissatisfied man as August passed himWhich is reminiscent of the funny scene involving Wymess in the novel Vera Wemyss is remonstrating against one of his maids He sees that the piano cover is missing a button He wants everything just so exactly just so and someone is to blame for the missing button Look at the piano leg said Wemyss The parlourmaid not knowing which leg looked at all three so as to be safe What do you see he asked The parlourmaid was reluctant to say What she saw was piano legs but she felt that wasn t the right answer What do you NOT see Wemyss asked louder This was much difficult because there were so many things she didn t see her parents for instanceWhich is reminiscent of Mrs Fischer in The Enchanted April when she dislikes a mannerism of speaking of Mrs Wilkins You see Mrs Wilkins said a silly trick that which she mostly began her sentences Mrs Fischer each time wished to say Pardon me I do not see I hear by why troubleIn the present novel the protagonist is rarely called by her name but from the title we know it is Elizabeth Only once or twice is there mention that she has a husband and children She is very well off so one can imagine maids and governesses are taking care of the children Elizabeth wants to take a fortnight to see R gen a picturesue island in northeast Germany located off the Pomeranian coast in the Baltic Sea I had the 1904 edition and what was a nice bonus to the book was the inlaid 2 page fold out map at the beginning of the novel showing a drawing of R gen and a red line drawn by Elizabeth on the drawing outlining her route taken during the 11 day trip She runs into a cousin she has not seen in 10 years Charlotte and that makes for an entertaining part of the novel Charlotte 10 years earlier when she was 19 or 20 years old ran off to get married to a 60 year old Professor who was well known and full of himself and interested in women younger than he Anyway in the course of the story we also run into that Professor now 70 and Charlotte now 30 and another pompous windbag Mrs Harvey Browne a bishops wife Elizabeth von Arnim used the penname Elizabeth for most of her novels in this one she used by the author of Elizabeth and Her German Garden so I will use Elizabeth Elizabeth had me laughing out loud or chuckling on than one occasion as she has had me doing with her other novels I would give this a very solid 3 stars If you were interested in dipping into her oeuvre this is not a novel I would recommend starting off with It is an amusing read and I enjoyed it but there were uite often long winded descriptions of the flora of R gen which at least for me tended to be a bit much at times as well as the lack of a plot Still those are minor points to me this was uintessential Elizabeth and I enjoyed it overall For those newcomers to Elizabeth I would recommend any of these three novels Vera The Enchanted April or the Caravaners Notes Chapter headings included the day of the trip and the starting off point and destination of the trip eg The Third Day From Lauterbach to G hren Another nice thing about the 1904 edition was that after the novel s conclusion there were synopses and brief reviews of four of her earlier works Elizabeth and Her German Garden the Benefactress The Solitary Summer and The April Baby s Book of Tunes sort of a seuelcompanion piece to Elizabeth and Her German Garden Note In Wikipedia we are told this novel like several of hers are semi autobiographical in nature So it is possible that this is the same Elizabeth as in Elizabeth and Her German Garden but I am not sure Certainly von Arnim was very well off and at the time she had little children as did the Elizabeth in this novel Reviews This is an excellent review From a blogger If you subscribe to the NY Times which I don t you can read a review of the book when it first came out See the NY Times digital archives Review is located in Section BR Page 156 issue date of March 5 1904 From a blog site where one can download the book in several formats novel is also available on Project Gutenberg

The title characternarrator might also be the author don t know don t care is a wealthy English lady who married a German whatever and now regards herself as a female Junker and feels like traveling around the island of R gen all alone which means being driven in a carriage by a chauffeur and having her shoes buttoned by a maid These are inferior beings of course she sometimes seriously ponders the possible presence of inner life in her maid not allowed to bother her There are others namely her rebellious feminist cousin the cousin s unbelievably creepy cute old German professor and a wife of an English bishop who have the rights to bother her and she can t run away Her distress at this horrible development is what the book is aboutDisliked this book immensely Wow Talk about annoying Sometimes there were glimpses of compassion but mostly it was all about smug self satisfaction of Elizabeth who simply could not understand how other people especially those stupid unreasonable women could be dissatisfied with their lot in life The feminist cousin was a sick harried and unpleasant individual the bishop s wife was a horrid snob and hypocrite the men were or less fussed over and forgiven for their little faults being dontcha know men and Elizabeth would rather talk to men Way valuable and interesting menThere was also nature depicted in painstaking detail with raptures and frills and lots of sugarI had lots of irritating stuff highlighted but I m not feeling like uoting anything Maybe when I m in prison with nothing else to doI liked the ending and some of the irritating passages which made me read on hence 2 stars But I must say that it s been a long time since I ve been in a unsympathetic company I m also reading Little Women and haven t decided which bunch of characters is worse as of yet but Elizabeth in R gen might take the cake With rancid butter lol
