Book: F. Marion Crawford «The Three Fates»

The Three Fates

Серия: "-"

1891. With frontispiece. F. Marion Crawford was one of the more famous authors in the English-speaking world at the time of his death in 1909. He wrote over forty novels, most of which were in the style of disposable romances popular at the time. He also wrote stories of the horror and occult, which are generally the ones for which he is remembered today. The Three Fates begins: Jonah Wood was bitterly disappointed in his son. During five and twenty years he had looked in vain for the development of those qualities in George, which alone, in his opinion, could insure success. But though George could talk intelligently about the great movements of business in New York, it was clear by this time that he did not possess what his father called business instincts. The old man could have forgiven him his defective appreciation in the matter of dollars and cents, however, if he had shown the slightest inclination to adopt one of the regular professions; in other words, if George had ceased to waste his time in the attempt to earn money with his pen, and had submitted to becoming a scribe in a lawyer's office, old Wood would have been satisfied. The Boy's progress might have been slow, but it would have been sure. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Francis Marion Crawford

Francis Marion Crawford (2 de agosto de 18549 de abril de 1909) fue un escritor estadounidense, autor de gran número de novelas y de cuentos de terror.

Nació en Bagni di Lucca, Italia, hijo de un escultor estadounidense. Su tía era la poetisa Julia Ward Howe. Estudió en las universidades de Cambridge, Heidelberg y Roma.

En 1879 partió a la India, donde estudió sánscrito. De vuelta a Estados Unidos, publicó, en 1882, su primera novela, Mr. Isaacs. En 1883 regresó a Italia, donde instaló su residencia permanente, lo que dio a su obra un giro original con respecto a sus contemporáneos.

Siguió publicando novelas con éxito, al tiempo que trabajos históricos: Ave Roma Immortalis (1898), Rulers of the South (1900), renombrada Sicily, Calabria and Malta en 1904, y Gleanings from Venetian History (1905).

Sus obras se ven repletas de vitalidad histórica y muestran una efectiva caracterización dramática. Gran conocedor de su país de adopción, Crawford fue el primer autor en abordar el tema de la Mafia en la literatura: Corleone (1897). Son de importancia las obras: Khaled: A Tale of Arabia, la historia de un genio que se hace humano. A Cigarette-maker's Romance, que fue adaptada al teatro, y el drama de 1902 Francesca da Rimini, interpretado en París por la actriz Sarah Bernhardt.

Algunos de sus cuentos de terror han sido incluidos a menudo en las antologías: "The Upper Berth" (El camarote superior) (1894), "For the Blood Is the Life" (1911, de vampiros) y "The Screaming Skull" (1911).

Crawford murió en Sorrento, Italia, en 1909, de un ataque cardíaco.
