"A beautiful hardcover edition of the collected stories of "one of the best short story writers who ever lived"--with a new introduction by John Banville. Widely known for her extraordinary novels, including The Heat of the Day, The House in Paris, and The Death of the Heart, Elizabeth Bowen established herself in the front rank of twentieth-century writers equally through her short fiction. This collection includes seventy-nine magnificent stories written over the course of four decades, including such beloved classics as "Mysterious Kor," "The Demon Lover," "Summer Night," "Ivy Gripped the Steps," and "The Happy Autumn Fields." Whether placing her reader in a remote Irish castle or a seaside Italian villa or bomb-scarred London during the Blitz, Bowen was famous for scene setting of almost hallucinatory vividness, but her ability to evoke inner landscapes of spellbinding intensity was even more remarkable. Frustrated lovers, acutely observed children, and even vengeful ghosts inhabit her tales with an urgency and emotional complexity that make it clear that the drama of human consciousness was her central subject. These stories are enduring testimony to Bowen's reputation as a creator of finely chiseled narratives--rich in imagination, psychological insight, and craft--that transcend their time and place"--… (més)

[From Great Modern Reading, ed. W. Somerset Maugham, Doubleday, 1943, p. 43:]

As a relief to these two stories that deal with nice little boys [Steinbeck’s “The Gift” and T. O. Beachcroft’s “The Erne from the Coast”], I have given “Maria”, by Elizabeth Bowen, which deals with a demon of a girl. Elizabeth Bowen has written a number of stories that are much admired by those who admire them for their delicacy, atmosphere, and subtlety. She has written that is more amusing than “Maria.” Since she is probably the most distinguished novelist of her sex now writing in England, I may mention the name of her best novel, Death of the Heart. It is very good; I think it would have been even better if she had not allowed her vigorous Irish talent to be vitiated by the untoward authority of Henry James.

This book, filled with short stories about women of different types and men who believe the women to understand but can not at all this, was a great reading.
The very different types of women, sometimes girlish, sometimes matrons, sometimes uncertain personalities and then strong character, are described in great detail with all their wishes, their thinking and their anger. The inadequacy of the men, who often made me smile, are presented in detail with every stereotype.
Bowens writing style is fascinating. She writes in such a detailed manner that her stories are perceived as a film. Of course, her figures mostly come from the better society, but this also has to do with the time in which they were written. ( )
