REVIEW The Caravaners

FREE DOWNLOAD The Caravaners ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub REVIEW Ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Elizabeth von Arnim REVIEW The Caravaners For the Major and his wife Edelgard the idea of a holiday touring Southern England seems perfect But England p. This is the third novel I have read by her and I liked it very muchperhaps not as much as Enchanted April 1922 or Vera 1921 but those two were in my estimation over the top good and this was still a most enjoyable read I have about 20 of her books to go which makes me happy The Caravaners was written in 1909 one year before her first husband died Supposedly she was not happy at times but also from what I can gather she did love him and she was at his bedside with 3 of their daughters when he died It is said that he had numerous affairs and he was actually imprisoned in 1907 for fraud So perhaps due to money problems she took up writing However she could not use her real name when submitting books to publishers as this would make her husband look inferior to her and we can t have that can we Basically The Caravaners is about a vacation in the England countryside that the Baron Otto and Baroness Edelgard von Ottringel from Germany are supposed to take with several other people some of whom they do know and some of who they do not know but they will come to know upon vacationing with them How best to describe Otto who is the narrator of the novel He s a pompous windbag who is in love with himself and as far as I can tell has a dim view towards pretty much everybody he meets He is superior in intellect and morals and values to those around him especially to the English people he meets on vacation Why Edelgard decided to marry him when she was 24 and he was over 40 and had just lost his first wife of 19 years is beyond me I guess it must have been his money which isn t a very good reason Anyway I digressThey do actually go on vacation to celebrate their wedding anniversary She calls it their fifth year anniversary and he feels slighted that his first wife died before their 25th wedding anniversary so he feels the trip is in honor of his 25th wedding anniversary and if you don t understand that then you are in good company as neither I nor you nor poor Edelgard can understand either They travel around the English countryside in as best I can tell precursors to mobile homeslooks like covered wagons to me and the contraptions are drawn by horses The caravaners as they are called camp out every night somewhere new as they move from Point A to Point Band they supposedly save a whole lot of money that way versus staying in staying in hotelslodges along the way on their trip The novel describes the trip from the Baron s point of view and also we are privy to his thoughts about his fellow travelers including his wife You know there might be trouble with this vacation when you hear the following pop out of his mouth or that are part of his thoughts A thought of his Indeed the perfect woman does not talk at all Who wants to hear her All that we ask of her is that she shall listen intelligently when we wish for a change to tell her about our own thoughts and that she should be at hand when we want anything Surely this is not too much to ask Matches ashtrays and one s wife should be so to speak on every table and I maintain that the perfect wife copies the conduct of the matches and the ashtrays and combines being useful with being dumb When Otto approaches one of his fellow caravaners to speak to him the other fellow always says that Otto s approach reminded him of something he had to do and he went away to do it Otto is annoyed by this and mentions it to his wife and she said he never did that when she joined him Dear wife I explained you have less power to remind him of unperformed duties than I possess I suppose I have said Edelgard Otto And it is very natural that it should be so Power of whatever sort it may be is a masculine attribute I do not wish to see my little wife with any Neither do I said she Ah there speaks my own good little wife I mean not if it is that sort What sort dear wife The sort that reminds people whenever I come that it is time they went She looked at me with the odd look that I observed for the first time during our English holiday Often I have seen it since but I cannot recollect having seen it before Another thought of his Women it is true are fairly safe so long as they have a child once a year which is Nature s way of keeping them uiet I wonder if the author s husband Henning Count von Arnim treated her this way I mean she didn t use her real name when submitting her first book to a publisher because if it were to be published that would be an embarrassment to him that she is acclaimed than he is Makes me wonder Because I have to remind myself that even though this husband Otto is loathsome the author creating it is Elizabeth von Arnimso maybe if that character to her is not anything like her husband she is aware of this sort of lack of respect from males born into GermanPrussian nobility towards womenand also how they treat people who are not of nobility be they male or femaleOtto sort of reminds me of the central male character in the novel Vera Wemyss who is even worse than Otto Far far worse if you can imagine that I suppose Otto would have turned into a Wemyss if his wife Edelgard had not stood up for herself she was very much unlike his first wife who was extremely subservient to him And just as Katherine Mansfield von Arnim s cousin when asked if she ever knew a character such as Wemyss answered Oh my dear they are very plentiful I think there are many Ottos in this world ReviewsAn excellent review from a blog site Another good review from a blog site Philip II Of Macedonia: Greater Than Alexander perfect But England Siam in Trade and War p.
