Pietro Ghisleri

Серия: "-"

1892. 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. Pietro Ghisleri begins: The relation of two stepsisters is unusual. When the Honorable Mrs. Carlyon came to Rome twenty years ago, a young widow and the mother of a little girl named Laura, she did not foresee the complications which her second marriage was to produce. She was a good woman in her way, and if she had guessed what it would mean to be the stepmother of Adele Braccio she might have hesitated before marrying Camillo of that name, commonly known as the Prince of Gerano. For the Prince had also been married before, and his first wife had left him this one child, Adele, who was only a year and a half older than little Laura Carlyon.

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.
