Frances Hodgson Burnett, American-English novelist and playwright, was born on 24 November 1849 in Manchester, England. She began to write in her teens in order to support her family. She is best known for her three children’s novels, Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), A Little Princess (1905) and The Secret Garden (1911). Burnett was also a popular adult novelist, publishing novels including Through One Administration (1883) and A Lady of Quality (1886). She moved to America in the early 1900s and became its citizen. She died on 29 November 1914.
Sara Crewe, an exceptionally intelligent and imaginative student at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies, is devastated when her adored, indulgent father dies. Now penniless and banished to a room in the attic, Sara is demeaned, abused, and forced to work as a servant. How this resourceful girl's fortunes change again is at the center of A Little Princess, one of the best-loved stories in all of children's literature.
This unique and fully annotated edition appends excerpts from Frances Hodgson Burnett's original 1888 novella Sara Crewe and the stage play that preceded the novel, as well as an early story, "Behind the White Brick," allowing readers to see how A Little Princess evolved. In his delightful introduction, U. C. Knoepflmacher considers the fairy-tale allusions and literary touchstones that place the book among the major works of Victorian literature, and shows it to be an exceptionally rich and resonant novel.
