Great Meadow: An Evocation

Great Meadow: An Evocation

Dirk Bogarde


Employing either the language and lucidity of the younger boy that he conjures up, the actor became writer, Dirk Bogarde, provides us with a fascinating recollection of his early life. From 1927 to 1934 he lived in a distant cottage within the Sussex Downs along with his sister Elizabeth and their strict yet loving nanny, Lally. For the kids it used to be an idyllic time of pleasure and event: of gleaning on the finish of summer season, of oil lamps and wells, of harvests and harvest mice within the nice Meadow.

With nice sensitivity and poignancy, this memoir captures the sounds and scents, the affection and gentleness that surrounded the younger boy because the outdoors global ready to visit war.

First released in 1992, this can be one among Bogarde's latter memoirs.
