More About Frances Hodgson Burnett

Frances Hodgson Burnett Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an English-American playwright and author. She is best known for her children's stories, in particular Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-6), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

Frances Eliza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, near Manchester, England. After her father died in 1852, the family eventually fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 emigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There, Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870 her mother died and in 1872 she married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor after which they lived in Paris for two years where their two sons were born before returning to the US to live in Washington D.C. There she began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowries), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.

Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and bought a home there in the 1890s where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her oldest son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1892, which caused a relapse of the depression she struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898 and married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced him in 1902. Towards the end of her life she settled in Long Island, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery, on Long Island.

In 1936 a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.

Frances Hodgson Burnett lived in Manchester. Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in 1849 and died in 1924.

I agree with Cheap Print Job  Jul 28, 2009
Not only is it a flimsy book with no illustrations (when the illustrations are quite important to the story), but my copy was missing a page, right before the end. My copy goes straight from "his mother on one side and the Earl on t" then, new paragraph (skipping 263 words and a whole charming scene where little Cedric thanks everyone), it continues "hand into the Earl's and stood close to him."

Don't waste your money on this "Print on Demand" edition; get a good used copy instead.

superb classic for children 10+  May 25, 2009
nothing satisfies the imagination like a plot that contains a huge unexpected life-change for the protagonist. Rags to riches. Riches to rags. "Back-home" to a foreign land...
LITTLE LORD FAUNTLEROY is a classic favorite that deals with a dramatic change in circumstances for a boy in a working-class situation. The life-change aspect is downright glamorous in the truest sense of the word.
Should be required for all 4thgraders and up...
Little Lord Fauntleroy  May 12, 2009
This book was received exactly as described. Also, I might add that this is a most delightful book and teaches much about attitude and respect.
Feels like a perfect book for people who currently appear on TV  Apr 16, 2009
If you can stomach the syrupy details, Little Lord Fauntleroy is not bad of a book. The quality of the writing is very good and makes for a great reading. Yet it is so syrupy and idealistic that my head was somewhat spinning. Here are several excerpts from Little Lord Fauntleroy. "Oh, the house is so beautiful!" exclaims Little Lord Fauntleroy. "Oh, Dearest, the pony is so beautiful!" "You are the most wonderful, kindest man I've ever known!" Like I wrote, these are few examples, but in the book, there are a lot of them. Mostly, the tone of Little Lord Fauntleroy is that England is a better country than United States of America. The characters of the book are one-dimensional, but there is a good play with positivism and negativism. However, the values set forth by the book don't fit me well because people just can't buy other people's way out of their miseries. Although the therapeutic effect is short-lived, it is unrealistic and condescending. Little Lord Fauntleroy arouses jealousy in the readers that this boy will inherit the vastness of the treasure in forms of money, house, property, and so on and that he has the power to change people's lives. Really, changing people's lives doesn't require any money at all. At the same time, Little Lord Fauntleroy introduces the idea of materialism that it is deemed to be cool to possess a lot of stuff (and why? I ask). Again, the book was written in 1886, and it is difficult for the author to foresee the effects of materialism have on the environment and living space. Another terrible crime committed by the author is that her book is literally about beautiful people. So, the idea is that it is very important that you look beautiful as possible. Hm...sure. All in all, Little Lord Fauntleroy is an okay book, but I have no desire of reading it again.
Truly outdated  Oct 10, 2008
I generally lean toward old classics in selecting books to read to my precocious 6-yr old. This one is undoubtedly a classic, it is indeed very good literature, excellently written -- everything the other reviewers have said. Nevertheless, its story, its conflict, its central preoccupation revolves around a very British idea of class: one's "quality" as a person is determined by one's birth. This is antithetical to the very idea of America and will be much too hard to explain to a child. Yet if I wait until he is older, he will probably be turned off by the idealized, syrupy characterization.
