    Under the Apple Boughs Epub ë Under the PDF/EPUB ² under kindle, apple download, boughs pdf, Under the free, Under the Apple Boughs PDF/EPUBA splendid collection of thirteen vignettes of rural life as seen through the eyes of a writer with the soul of a poet Peter Maughan paints literary landscapes with a Turner palette all shimmery light plays of shadows chiaro scuro and startling detail The sense of place and the natural flow of the seasons are so strong as to become major actors in his stories while his characters whether human or animal stand out in full three dimensional prominence illuminated by his compassionate humanityThe prose is lyrical nostalgic affectionate and evocative Reading these episodes of daily life is like stopping your car on the verge of an unfamiliar village road and stepping inside the unchanging dimness of a country pub where Maughan's people live and talk as they always have sharing their quirks and imperfections their pettiness and timeless wisdom Complementing his exquisite descriptions the author has a real gift for dialogue

    Under the Apple Boughs Epub ë Under the PDF/EPUB ² under kindle, apple download, boughs pdf, Under the free, Under the Apple Boughs PDF/EPUBPeter Maughan’s “Under the Apple Boughs” is an idyll a calendar a photo album in prose It has many ancestors because many great and well loved English writers have celebrated their homes and neighbours and ways of life in country villages such as the one Maughan writes about And not just rural idylls Many English writers have celebrated gritty but cheerful industrial city urban hamlets But I digress For me the touchstone comparison is Dylan Thomas’s elegiac “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” although Thomas’s “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog” has a similar focus across remembered years from childhood to manhood The tragedy of Thomas’s wildly mis spent life is that he did not live to write like this or like “Under Milk Wood” an almost poetry prose dream evocation of a village and its villagers rambled though during two nights and a dayIndeed Maughan uses a handful of lines from Dylan Thomas’s rambling lyrical poem “Fern Hill” as epigr

    Under the Apple Boughs Epub ë Under the PDF/EPUB ² under kindle, apple download, boughs pdf, Under the free, Under the Apple Boughs PDF/EPUBFor those who are familiar with the Peter Maughan's books about the borderlands of England and Wales this will be a delightful supplement This is not a novel but a series of lyrically written tableaus written to highlight that ever present but unnamed character of his Batch Magna novels which is the countryside itself Expertly and lovingly described at various points throughout the year as only someone who intimately knows the area is able to achieve it presents the area in all of its glory This book will whet your appetite to visit the borderlands of England and Wales
