As she did in her critically acclaimed "The Last Days of the Romanovs," Helen Rappaport brings a compelling documentary feel to the story of this royal marriage and of the queen's obsessive love for her husband - a story that began as fairy tale and ended in tragedy.
After the untimely death of Prince Albert, the queen and her nation were plunged into a state of grief so profound that this one event would dramatically alter the shape of the British monarchy. For Britain had not just lost a prince: during his twenty year marriage to Queen Victoria, Prince Albert had increasingly performed the function of King in all but name. The outpouring of grief after Albert's death was so extreme, that its like would not be seen again until the death of Princess Diana 136 years later.
Drawing on many letters, diaries and memoirs from the Royal Archives and other neglected sources, as well as the newspapers of the day, Rappaport offers a new perspective on this compelling historical psychodrama--the crucial final months of the prince's life and the first long, dark ten years of the Queen's retreat from public view. She draws a portrait of a queen obsessed with her living husband and - after his death - with his enduring place in history. "Magnificent Obsession" will also throw new light on the true nature of the prince's chronic physical condition, overturning for good the 150-year old myth that he died of typhoid fever.

Описание: These poems lead the reader into a world that reveals a balancing act between the familiar and known, the mysterious and wild. Some poems are narrative, some imagistic meditations, and some are small, playful pieces that edge into wisdom: "Here, here, you sing and now / Between me and what I see / lives eternity". Throughout there is a unifying voice that is all Rappaports own and (unimaginably) blends scepticism with mysticism. The poems present themselves as both playful and worldly wise. These are poems that prefer understatement to hyperbole, with the capacity to compact turns of phrase and occasional rhyme so as to maximise their energy. The very structure of the book -- stating and then returning to themes -- enhances the energy and freshness of the collection by placing contrasting poems in juxtaposition. Rappaports voice makes the reader lean in so as to better hear what will next be said: "I sometimes wonder who / else is livin gin this body". His voice makes witty, humorous, truthful observations with a facility of language that is confident, relaxed, playful, and all his own.
