Book: BENSON, E. F. «Queen Lucia. Miss Mapp»

Queen Lucia. Miss Mapp

Серия: "Mapp and Lucia"

E. F. Benson's Mapp and Lucia novels revolve around two forceful and irrepressible women who dominate their respective villages in southern England and who end up hilariously at war with each other. Lucia is the more deadly of the two, with lofty morals, pretentious tastes, and a lust for power; a benevolent dictator, but a dictator nonetheless. Miss Elizabeth Mapp, on the other hand, is younger and more forceful and able to terrify her opponents into submission. Benson introduces these two unforgettable characters in the first two novels of the series, Queen Lucia (1920) and Miss Mapp (1922).

▪ British writer

born July 24, 1867, Wellington College, Berkshire, Eng.
died Feb. 29, 1940, London

      writer of fiction, reminiscences, and biographies, of which the best remembered are his arch, satirical novels and his urbane autobiographical studies of Edwardian and Georgian society.

      The son of E.W. Benson, an archbishop of Canterbury (1883–96), the young Benson was educated at Marlborough School and at King's College, Cambridge. After graduation he worked from 1892 to 1895 in Athens for the British School of Archaeology and later in Egypt for the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies. In 1893 he published Dodo, a novel that attracted wide attention. It was followed by a number of other successful novels—such as Mrs. Ames (1912), Queen Lucia (1920), Miss Mapp (1922), and Lucia in London (1927)—and books on a wide range of subjects, totaling nearly 100. Among them were biographies of Queen Victoria, William Gladstone, and William II of Germany. In 1938 he was made an honorary fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge. Benson's reminiscences include As We Were (1930), As We Are (1932), and Final Edition (1940).
