Ross Poldark. Esimene Poldarki raamat

Winston Grahami menuka Poldarki sarja esimeses osas pöördub Ameerika iseseisvussõjas käinud Ross Poldark Inglismaale tagasi, tulvil lootust kohtuda taas armastatud Elizabethiga. Kohale jõudes leiab ta eest lagastatud kodu, kus elavad kanad ja purjus teenijad, lisaks saab ta teada, et ta isa on surnud ja Elizabeth – uskudes, et Ross on hukkunud– on kihlatud tema onupojaga. Rossil ei jää üle muud, kui alustada oma elu otsast peale. Inglismaa majandus on kaotatud sõja järel kehvas seisus ning Cornwalli kaevurid ja kalurid nälgivad. Kui Ross toob ühel päeval laadalt koju nälginud ja peksasaanud tüdruku Demelza ja tema kaitseks välja astub, tekitab see tema seisusekaaslaste seas ja kuulujutumaias seltskonnas palju meelehärmi. „Ross Poldark“ on esimene osa Winston Grahami 12-osalisest ajalooliste romaanide sarjast. Sarja esimeste osade põhjal on valminud populaarne BBC telesari.

Winston Mawdsley Graham OBE (June 30, 1908July 10, 2003) was an English novelist, best known for the "Poldark" series of historical novels.

Graham was born in Victoria Park, Manchester, England. When he was 17 he moved to Perranporth, Cornwall. His first novel, "The House with the Stained Glass Windows" was published in 1934; his first "Poldark" novel, "Ross Poldark", was published in 1945, and was followed by a series of eleven further titles, the last of which, "Bella Poldark", came out in 2002. The series was set in Cornwall, especially in and around Perranporth, where Graham spent much of his life. The "Poldark" saga was made into a BBC television series in the 1970s and, with audiences reaching 14 million, was so successful that vicars moved or cancelled church services rather than try to hold them when "Poldark" was showing.

Aside from the "Poldark" series, Graham's most successful work was "Marnie", a thriller which was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1964. Hitchcock had originally hoped that Grace Kelly would return to films to play the lead and she had agreed in principle, but the plan failed when the principality of Monaco realisedFact|date=March 2008 that the heroine was a thief and sexually repressed. The leads were eventually taken by Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery. Five of Graham's other books were filmed, including "The Walking Stick", "Night Without Stars" and "Take My Life".

Graham was an accomplished writer of suspense novels and in the course of his life wrote nearly thirty novels (in addition to the twelve Poldarks). A 1941 spy thriller "Night Journey" set in the contemporary Nazi-occupied Europe captures the spirit of the time, with the protagonist feeling that Britain was going to lose the war but is determined to "go down fighting". Graham also wrote a history of "The Spanish Armadas" and an historical novel, "The Grove of Eagles", based in that period. (The plural "Armadas" refers to a lesser-known second attempt by Philip II of Spain to conquer England, in 1598, which Graham argued was better planned and organised than the famous one of 1588 but was foiled by a fierce storm scattering the Spanish ships and sinking many of them).

He married Jean Williamson in September, 1939, someone he had first met in 1926 when she was 13. In his youth he was a keen tennis player, recording in his diaries how many sets he played each day. He lived in Perranporth from 1925 until 1959, briefly in the south of France in 1960 and then settled in East Sussex. He was Chairman of the Society of Authors and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and in 1983 was honoured with the OBE.

Graham's autobiography, "Memoirs of a Private Man", was published by Macmillan in 2003. To celebrate the centenary of his birth, the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, Cornwall, is holding an exhibition devoted to his life and works ("Poldark's Cornwall: The life and times of Winston Graham") from mid-June to mid-September, 2008 to coincide with the re-publication of the "Poldark" novels by Pan Macmillan.

The Winston Graham Historical Prize was launched as part of the Centenary Celebrations. Funded by a legacy from the author and supported by Pan Macmillan it is for a work of unpublished fiction, preferably with a connection to Cornwall. Full details can be obtained from the Royal Cornwall Museum.

The majority of Winston Graham's manuscripts and papers have been donated to the Royal Institute of Cornwall by his son Andrew Graham (academic) and daughter Rosamund Barteau. Further papers are housed at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
