  • ASIN: Book Description Firbank, Five Novels. Part high-camp comedy of manners and part fairy tale. Customer Reviews: Only In England Firbank's name is now largely forgotten. Admired by Edmund Wilson, and read by the best of his contemporary English satirists, he carved out a special and unique niche. These novels are about as close to 'purple prose' as it's possible for fine literature to get without slipping into bathos. The stories range from the sublimely silly and devious, as in "The Eccentricities" with it's striking similarities to Norman Douglas' "South Wind", to the allegorical tales that call to mind the odd quirkiness of the French novelist Roussel. Firbank's major limitation was always a general and consistent lack of any balancing perspective or straight forwardness. His fastidously over the top flights of prose fancy desparately call for a grounding that never occurs. At his best, as in the baptism scene beginning the Eccentricities, Firbank's brilliance overcomes these limitations - he approaches the artistic level of a Waugh. However, all too often his fussiness and self-indulgence overwhelm the best interests of his novels. His extraordinarily convoluted, elliptical and parallel plotting only makes things more difficult. Sans the brilliant hard-nosed poetic realism grounding the fussiness of a Nabokov, Firbank's books stagnate. An overt reticence to call things as they are doesn't help. Way too much in Firbank ends up half-said, vague or furtive. Endless snatches of gossip and/or broken dialogues irreparably rend any sustainable plot.

    ODETTE: A Fairy Tale for Weary People,
    By Ronald Firbank
    Wikipedia . I had never heard of him but could not resist the title. The book is quite an accomplishment and the pictures by Albert Buhrer are nice, too. Since the covers of the book were in terrible condition, I have had to remove the defects as much as I am able with my poor photo-editing skills. The cover is the only Illustration by Albert Buhrer that showed color in the image (which is in black and white in the Title Pages). I matched this color as closely as I could. Curiously, Mr. Firbank uses a word, bercing , that is defined in no dictionary, on the internet or otherwise, that I could find. After my recent attempts to study French, I now realize that he has made a new word, a neologism, from berceau This book is suitable for children and adults. It is more intricate, and subtly so, than is usual for a fairy tale. The young age of the author adds to my sense of awe at the power at his ability. The cover is below, and NEXT then takes you to Odette . Let her story berce you to sleep!

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search
    External links Arthur Annesley Ronald Firbank (17 January 1886 – 21 May 1926) was a British novelist.
    edit Biography
    Ronald Firbank was born in London, the son of society lady Harriet Jane Garrett and MP Sir Thomas Firbank. He went to Uppingham School , and then on to Trinity Hall, Cambridge . He converted to Catholicism in 1907. In 1909 he left Cambridge, without completing a degree. Living off his inheritance, he travelled around Spain, Italy, the Middle East, and North Africa. He died of lung disease in Rome, aged 40.
    edit Work
    He published his first book, Odette d'Antrevernes , a story, in 1905 before going up to Cambridge. From then, he produced a series of novels, from The Artificial Princess (written in 1915, published posthumously in 1934) and Vainglory (1915, his longest work) to Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli (1926, also posthumous). Inclinations (1916) takes place mainly in Greece, where Mabel Collins, 15, is traveling with her female chaperone, Miss O'Brookomore; Mabel elopes with an Italian conte, but the plot is of minor importance, the book's interest – as with all Firbank's work – lying in the dialogue. His next novel Caprice followed in 1917.

Of a delicate and eccentric nature, Firbank lived the life of a leisured aesthete. His novels, which have appealed to a small but appreciative audience, include Vainglory Valmouth Prancing Nigger (1924), and Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli (1926). Written in a highly personal, satiric style with no conventional plots, his books are disciplined journeys into a world inhabited by bizarre characters. His writings have had an influence on the novels of such writers as Evelyn Waugh, Ivy Compton-Burnett, and Aldous Huxley. Bibliography See his complete works (with a preface by A.
