Biography; Biography: literary
Even before she emerged from the cot in her nursery Beatrix Potter was up against it. With her prodigious memory she recalled being placed under the tyranny of a cross old nurse who introduced her to witches, fairies and the creed of the terrible John Calvin. More sadness followed. She had no siblings of her own age and was brought up virtually in isolation. She was afflicted by two most unpleasant illnesses one of which has not previously been recognised - and she found herself often at odds with her mother. She also had a love affair that ended tragically. Yet, she grew up to become one of the most original of childrens authors whose books are as popular today as they were when they were first published almost a century ago. Andrew Norman, in this concise and insightful biography, uncovers the source of the inspiration that gave birth to a series of remarkable childrens books, including the most famous of all The Tale of Peter Rabbit. AUTHOR: Dr Andrew Norman is a versatile biographer and historian. His many books include studies of Hitler, Sir Francis Drake, Robert Mugabe, Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie, T.E. Lawrence and Charles Darwin. 32 b/w illustrations
