Beatrix Potter's Tale
A Fictional PortraitLarge Print - 1998
This story of Potter's struggle to escape the overbearing influence of her parents follows her life from the age of thirty to her mid-forties, a time filled with dramatic conflict, passion & tragedy. Elizabeth Battrick takes us from foggy Victorian London to the sweeping beauty of the Lakeland fells, & contrasts the colourful "below stairs" exchanges of the servants with the Potter family's suffocatingly genteel existence. Seamlessly blending fact & fiction, this fascinating account paints a very life-like portrait of the writer & illustrator of some of our best-loved children's stories
