More About Frances Hodgson Burnett, Adriana Guisasola, Stephen Morse, Kristian Donaldson, Jeromy Cox & Ellen S. O'Connor

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.

Good book  May 3, 2010
I loved this book as a child and thought my 13 year old would enjoy it. It was a change of pace from the type of book she normally reads, but she stuck with it and ended up liking it very much.
a nostalgic read  Apr 4, 2010
I hadn't read this book since i was a little girl sitting on my grandmother's lap, but i was glad to find it held up to my recollections! it's a beautiful story illustrating the resillience of children and the value of nurturing love. A fantastic read for anyone, whether they be 8 or 80.
A spoiled brat transforms...............  Mar 27, 2010
it was a wonderful,enjoyable book. Great 4 all ages. It also has a good theme and very heartwarming.
Charming, Insightful, Refreshing  Mar 7, 2010
If you seek a break from novels reading like the six o'clock news on steroids, you might enjoy the innocent interlude of The Secret Garden. Be prepared for Snow White meets Pinocchio meets St. Francis of Assisi--a character named Dickon who enters one scene with a crow named Soot on his right shoulder, squirrels named Nut and Shell on his left shoulder and in his coat pocket, a rescued newborn lamb in his arms, and a little red fox trotting by his side. Though at times a bit syrupy, this book refreshes between other novels about calamity after calamity, evil upon evil.

The Secret Garden reminds adults of the healing power of childlike wonder over childhood wounds. The golden nugget of wisdom at the heart of this charming allegory is the Proverb "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he," or the words of Jesus in Luke 6, "For out of the overflow of his heart, his mouth speaks."

At the beginning of the novel, cousins Mary Lennox and Colin Craven, both 10 years old, have developed self-defeating attitudes due to parental abandonment. The mystery of a locked garden, also abandoned for 10 years, intrigues them. Nurturing this garden, they nurture their own and each other's hearts. Their transformation brings wonder and delight to the adults around them. Key change agents in the story are members of a local family, Dickon's, who enjoy simple pleasures, are one with nature, and who love giving life.

As if the metaphor of tending the garden (with its need for weeding and seeding to produce beautiful flowers) weren't enough, author Frances Hodgson Burnett plants another strong analogy. Dickon's family speaks a broad Yorkshire dialect, which Mary delights in learning. I especially liked one vocabulary lesson, when she learns that wick means alive or lively. As she abandons her dour outlook, replaces it with newfound purpose and wonder, and reaches out to love others, Mary becomes more wick.
Lovely to Revisit  Mar 1, 2010
I loved this book as a child, and it was so nice to revisit it as an adult. A perfect book to read on a cold, windy winter afternoon when nobody else is home. Your mind can escape to a lovely garden coming to life in the early spring. It inspired me to go for more walks and runs outdoors, no matter what the weather is like. I'll read it to my children.
