Rebecca

Introd. by Sally Beauman

(2)

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again . . .

Working as a lady´s companion, the orphaned heroine of Rebecca learns her place. Life begins to look very bleak until, on a trip to the South of France, she meets Maxim de Winter, a handsome widower whose sudden proposal of marriage takes her by surprise. Whisked from glamorous Monte Carlo to his brooding estate, Manderley, on the Cornish Coast, the new Mrs de Winter finds Max a changed man. And the memory of his dead wife Rebecca is forever kept alive by the forbidding Mrs Danvers . . .

Not since Jane Eyre has a heroine faced such difficulty with the Other Woman. An international bestseller that has never gone out of print, Rebecca is the haunting story of a young girl consumed by love and the struggle to find her identity.

Portrait

Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. In 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published. A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children.
Many of du Maurier´s bestselling novels and short stories were adapted into award-winning films, including Alfred Hitchcock´s The Birds and Nicolas Roeg´s Don´t Look Now. In 1969 du Maurier was awarded a DBE. She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books.

All the way through, I was wondering how the mansion Manderley would look like if it was real. A young woman marries an older gentleman, Maxim de Winter. Still, everyone is thinking about his late first wife Rebecca. So the new Mrs de Winter feels unloved and always compared to the first wife. Even the servant Mrs Danvers doesn't make life much easier as she was Rebecca's closest friend. After some time though, the young lady finds out about a dark secret, connected to Maxim and whole Manderley. But will their love overcome all the troubles? Good short story, but I guess I rather prefer the original book for it is longer and therefore much more detailed.

Perfekte Verbindung vom Angenehmen mit dem Nützlichen
von Stefanie Ingenpaß aus Iserlohn am 23.07.2011
Bewertet: Schulbuch (Taschenbuch)

"Rebecca" gehörte schon als Teenager zu meinen Lieblingsbüchern. Als ich kürzlich meine Sprachkenntnisse aufpolieren wollte, fiel mir diese etwas vereinfachte englische Ausgabe samt CDs in die Hände. Toll! Der Text ist sinnvoll gekürzt und durch die CDs hat man die Sprache schnell verinnerlicht.
