Two magicians shall appear in England. The first shall fear me; the second shall long to behold me Centuries ago, when magic still existed in England, the greatest magician of them all was the Raven King. A human child brought up by fairies, the Raven King blended fairy wisdom and human reason to create English magic. Now, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, he is barely more than a legend, and England, with its mad King and its dashing poets, no longer believes in practical magic. Then the reclusive Mr Norrell of Hurtfew Abbey appears and causes the statues of York Cathedral to speak and move. News spreads of the return of magic to England and, persuaded that he must help the government in the war against Napoleon, Mr Norrell goes to London. There he meets a brilliant young magician and takes him as a pupil. Jonathan Strange is charming, rich and arrogant. Together, they dazzle the country with their feats. But the partnership soon turns to rivalry. Mr Norrell has never conquered his lifelong habits of secrecy, while Strange will always be attracted to the wildest, most perilous magic.He becomes fascinated by the shadowy figure of the Raven King, and his heedless pursuit of long-forgotten magic threatens, not only his partnership with Norrell, but everything that he holds dear. Elegant, witty and utterly compelling, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell creates a past world of great mystery and beauty that will hold the reader in thrall until the last page.

Descrizione libro Hardcover. Condizione: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. 1st Edition, Special Edition. You will not find a better copy of this book as it is unopened and still in publishers wrapping. This is the special limited edition, signed and numbered (I can't verify the number as I have not opened it) in slipcase. In addition, this copy comes complete with a very rare copy of the Daily Raven that was distributed by the publisher at the time of the book launch. Susanna Clarke?s debut novel became a publishing phenomenon. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is an unlikely story of intellectual obsession, set in a Regency England in which the buried powers of English magic are reawoken by two scholar magicians. The prose style mashes together Jane Austen and Charles Dickens for a tale that ranges across all levels of society as well as to fairyland and the battlefields of the Napoleonic war. The pages crawl with footnotes, one of the title characters doesn?t appear for the first 200 pages and at the end the reader is left hanging. It went on to sell four million copies worldwide and was adapted for a BBC miniseries in 2015. Neil Gaiman, an early champion, declared it the finest work of English fantasy in 70 years ? but he also predicted that it ?would be too unusual and strange for the general public? The long-awaited followup is out this week and, as Clarke admits from her home in Derbyshire, it?s stranger still. ?When I finished it I thought: ?This is so different, I don?t know whether anyone is going to understand it because it?s so peculiar.??.
