The Worshipful Lucia PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Worshipful Lucia free pdf E. F. Benson s beloved Mapp and Lucia novels are sparkling, classic comedies of manners set against the petty snobberies and competitive maneuverings of English village society in the 1920s and 1930s."The Worshipful Lucia" (1935- published in the UK as "Lucia s Progress)" and "Trouble for Lucia" (1939) are the last two novels in Benson s series. They chronicle the ongoing battles of his famous characters Mrs. Lucia Lucas and Miss Elizabeth Mapp in the idyllic seaside village of Tilling, which proves too small to contain both of them. While both are hypocritical snobs, Lucia is animated by marvelous delusions of grandeur and Mapp by insatiable curiosity and chronic rage- their epic collisions rock their small society and provide the narrative engines for Benson s gloriously farcical masterpieces."

About E F Benson

E. F. BENSON was born in 1867 at Wellington College in Berkshire, England, where his father (who later became Archbishop of Canterbury) was the headmaster. Benson studied archaeology at Kings College, Cambridge and at the British School of Archaeology in Athens, where he came to know Lord Alfred Douglas and Oscar Wilde. After visiting Henry James in the village of Rye, Benson eventually settled there until his death in 1940- Rye was the model for Tilling, the setting of his six popular Mapp and Lucia novels. Benson published more than one hundred books on various subjects, but remains best known for Mapp and Lucia.
