The Adventures of Elizabeth in RügenIn 1901 the Countess von Arnim Schlagenthin ecides to go on a walking tour of Rugen Germany s largest island off the Pomeranian coast None of her friends want to go with her so she Guantanamo and the Abuse of Presidential Power decides to go alone in a carriage instead of walking She has an i Sadly cannot find the exact edition of this book by Gutenberg Project that Iownloaded to my kindle for free Both my husband and I read this book having seen it referred to in a walking program Wanderlust with Julia Bradbury and having relatives that vacation on Rugen annually It From a Whisper to a Shout distresses me that the bookescriptions are often incorrect for the various editions Elizabeth in 1904 was a lady before her timesshe wanted to walk Rugen and experience it totally but could not get a woman friend to accompany her so off she goes with her Alt 10 Retrospect Prospect driver August and her MAID the wonderful character Gertrud two horses toraw the carriage and off they go Along the way she runs into various characters and situations and her cousin Charlotte A somewhat frustrated early feminist attempting to spread the word of liberation to all females within her reach and avoid her aging Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom doddering professor husband The two British visitors to the Island mother and son and Charlotte s Professor husband and Charlotte herself all seem to weave in and out of the story while everyone moves around the island meeting up here and there The humor and wit of Elizabeth sescriptions of the frustrations large and small of NOT getting her solitude and her beautifully expressed joy of the nature in every respect make the book a true pleasure to read I can well understand why her writing was and remains popular We took note with some pleasure in the second series of Downton AbbeyI think episode two wherein her famous book Elizabeth and Her German Garden was made reference toOne has to try and put themselves back into another time in this world when such manners and customs were necessary and treasured In many ways I wish we could see of these sensibilities todayA joy for a change of pace The title characternarrator might also be the author Celtic Plant Magic: A Workbook for Alchemical Sex Rituals don t knowon t care is a wealthy English lady who married a German whatever and now regards herself as a female Junker and feels like traveling around the island of R gen all alone which means being Reading Contemporary African American Literature driven in a carriage by a chauffeur and having her shoes buttoned by a maid These are inferior beings of course she sometimes seriously ponders the possible presence of inner life in her maid not allowed to bother her There are others namely her rebellious feminist cousin the cousin s unbelievably creepy cute old German professor and a wife of an English bishop who have the rights to bother her and she can t run away Heristress at this horrible Southern African Literature: An Introduction development is what the book is aboutDisliked this book immensely Wow Talk about annoying Sometimes there were glimpses of compassion but mostly it was all about smug self satisfaction of Elizabeth who simply could not understand how other people especially those stupid unreasonable women could beissatisfied with their lot in life The feminist cousin was a sick harried and unpleasant individual the "bishop s wife was a horrid snob and "s wife was a horrid snob and the men were or less fussed over and forgiven for their little faults being Happy Alchemy: On the Pleasures of Music and the Theatre dontcha know men and Elizabeth would rather talk to men Way valuable and interesting menThere was also natureepicted in painstaking etail with raptures and frills And Lots Of SugarI Had Lots Of lots of sugarI had lots of stuff highlighted but I m not feeling like uoting anything Maybe when I m in prison with nothing else to oI liked the ending and some of the irritating passages which made me read on hence 2 stars But I must say that it s been a long time since I ve been in a unsympathetic company I m also reading Little Women and haven t ecided which bunch of characters is worse as of yet but Elizabeth in R gen might take the cake With rancid butter lol Rugen is the largest island Germany possesses It is 32 miles long and 25 miles wide with a population today of 77000 people Although it is covered with farms and hotels today it is rich with history from the Stone Age forward since it was an important fortress in the Baltic Sea to regulate sea trade It has been fought over since it was taken from a germanic tribe in 500 BCE by the Danish Prince Waldemar I Later it was claimed by Pomerania then Sweden and later Russia Elizabeth visits it in 1905 and sees it much as it is today one of the most popular German vacation spots Elizabeth goes from town to town with her maid in her carriage looking for an inn to spend the night She likes the idea of turning her back on uties and exploring the world She has three young American Africans in Ghana Black Expatriates and the Civil Rights Era The John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture daughters and an estate to take care of at home in Miltzow She spends two weeks on Rugenescribing each stop Elizabeth enjoys the forests the sea and the landscape of each town Here she escribes sitting in the woods behind Binz when mere uiet weather trees and grass sea and clouds can make you forget that life has anything in it "But Rapture Can Make "rapture can make rink in heaven with every breath How long will it last this joy of living Elizabeth writes with wisdom and at times seems modern Recommended especially when visiting Rugen I was wanting to read this book after recently finding out it is the third of a series that My Hero Academia does not need to be read together because each book stands on its own but having read Elizabeth s German Garden and Solitar.

Y Summer and enjoying Elizabeth von Arnim s journal like style Elizabeth has such a refreshing air about her that has me enjoying all she says even though all the stories I have read of her including The Enchanted April are not story riven but people Michael Maier's Atalanta Fugiens: Sources of an Alchemical Book of Emblems driven You areriven forward by the conversations and actions of the people than a plot You are awakened to life spirituality with regards to nature and purpose of it all Her books have a loving of nature that one cannot help feel for nature Aliens Abroad deeply and wanting to explore iteeps I had never heard of the island Rugen before but I felt I traveled it in a way with her When reading this kind of travel guide which in reality turns into a human interaction story you are interested in how things turn out and once again can Elizabeth obtain that sought out solitary thoughtfulness which she loves to obtain when she commutes with nature but once again relatives or friends show up to bring that reality to restriction because of their want of constant attention Humor is always present but being a natural one with regards to human beings I find these stories interesting so for when they were written pre world war 1 independence of women being very limited and yet always Elizabeth brings it forth in her writing and looking at both sides I wonder what side she was really on I am not reading this in German however it is by far the best picture The modern cover for the English version is this WTF hattip wandafulAvailable on Project Gutenberg I shall read this on my laptop a page at a time Life is grand thank you WandaOpening Every one who has been to school and still remembers what he was taught there knows that R gen is the biggest island Germany possesses and that it lies in the Baltic Sea off the coast of PomeraniaShe finds a travel guide to R gen that has this remarkable paragraph Hearest thou the name R gen so oth a wondrous spell come over thee Before thine eyes it rises as a ream of far away beauteous fairylands Images and figures of long ago beckon thee across to the marvellous places where in grey prehistoric times they Chasing the Red Queen dwelt and on which they have left the shadow of their presence And in One cannot underestimate my love for Von Arnim s writing Her fiction is good but her autobiographical work is pure joy In this kind of work sheoesn t write about much of anything but her spirit and intelligence shine in witty observations of Algorithms of the Intelligent Web daily life Daily life it indeed was in her first two books Elizabeth and Her German Garden and The Solitary Summer In those she simplyescribed her aily goings on mostly in her beloved garden in rural Pomerania In The Solitary Summer she had a small premise at the outset to have no visitors for a whole summer and she succeeded charmingly This time around Von Arnim gets bolder with her premise to walk aroun This is the lady euivalent of Starship premise to walk aroun This is the lady euivalent of Starship You can read a satiric commentary or read a lovely and addicting travel narrative of Baltic resort life 100 years ago Words are carefully beautifully chosen even the escriptions of scenery are interesting and it s worth a look just to admire the casual precision of language and tone Meanwhile everyone in the book is so miserable The women are furiously silently frustrated with the social conventions that force them to furiously silently frustrated with the social conventions that force them to what they least want To The Men Are the men are and talk endlessly It s a wildly fun read This was an unexpectedly The Machine Stops delightful feel good readI usuallyo not read these kind of books tbh I rarely read anything that is not Science Fiction or Fantasy but I found it on the shelves of my late mother And since Ruegen is a place I have very fond memories of I had to take a lookAt the beginning of the last century Elizabeth Dare for More decides to travel around Ruegen with a waiting maid and a coachman Her intention is to have a uiet journey toiscover the lovely sights of the island in the Baltic Sea The uiet part of the journey is soon thwarted for she can not get rid off the company of an English bishop s wife and her son her cousin Charlotte who s frustrated by her fruitless efforts to get to see to women s rights and later on the cousin s husband an elderly professor whom said cousin tries to avoid cause he Academia dos Anjos (Redenção Livro 2) doesn t take her seriouslyAll Elizabeth wants is solitude all she gets is chaos Her little adventures are told in a humorous way herialogues are witty and her inner monologues often self eprecating The author tells her story with a light handed ironical istance Caught between emancipation and commitment to the established system she analyses herself and her environment with a sharp eye never condenscending always with understanding respect and sometimes with amiable naivet I had such a pleasure reading her mishaps most of which are completely harmless by nowadays standards in her vivid prose that I already bought of her books for my evening feel good times I am on an Elizabeth von Arnim kick Five novels read and something like 12 to go What got me started was Vera and that was an incredibly good book and then I read The Enchanted April After that I was hooked and off to the races with The Caravaners and then Elizabeth and Her German Garden and then Expiation They were all Life with My Idiot Family different enough from each other to stimulate but I am beginning to see some stylistic elements in her novels that are trademarks of hersTo wit here the protagonist s coachman August has left his coach with Elizabeth
