Le retour de Mary Poppins by Pamela Lyndon Travers,Thierry Beauchamp Summary

Rien ne va plus au numéro 17 de l'allée des Cerisiers depuis que Mary Poppins s'en est allée, emportée par le vent d'ouest. Un jour, Mme Banks, à bout de nerfs, envoie les enfants jouer au cerf-volant dans le parc. Et quelle n'est pas leur surprise de voir Mary Poppins descendre du ciel au bout de la ficelle ! Comme si de rien n'était, la nounou reprend sa place chez les Banks. Et c'est reparti pour de nouvelles aventures extraordinaires... En sa compagnie, tout semble possible.., Mlle Andrew, la vieille gouvernante de M. Banks, se fait enlever par son alouette. Jane se retrouve prisonnière d'un compotier en porcelaine. On prend son gouter la tête à l'envers. Les bébés parlent la langue des oiseaux. Les paresseux sortent des contes de fées. Le cirque des étoiles donne une représentation au milieu de la nuit. Le printemps se décore comme un arbre de Noël. Et ballons de baudruche et manèges sont réellement enchantés ! Classiques de la littérature anglo-saxonne, les histoires de Mary Poppins n'ont jamais cessé de fasciner petits et grands depuis la publication du premier volume de la série, en 1933. Après tout, la célèbre nounou n'est-elle pas une digne descendante d'Alice et de Peter Pan ?

Le Petit Garçon qui voulait être Mary Poppins by Alejandro PALOMAS Summary

C'est l'histoire de Guille... C'est l'histoire d'un petit garçon débordant d'imagination qui voue un amour sans bornes à Mary Poppins. L'histoire d'un père un peu bougon, qui vit seul avec ce fils sensible et rêveur dont il a du mal à accepter le caractère. D'une institutrice qui s'inquiète confusément pour l'un de ses élèves qui vit un peu trop dans ses rêves. D'une psychologue scolaire à qui on envoie un petit garçon qui a l'air d'aller beaucoup trop bien. Quel mystère se cache derrière cette apparence si tranquille, et pourtant si fragile ? Un roman choral aussi tendre que bouleversant, qui emprunte à l'enfance toute sa sincérité désarmante pour dire l'amour, le vide, le rêve et la puissance de l'imaginaire. Après Une mère et Tout sur mon chien, Alejandro Palomas nous surprend encore avec cette histoire qui peut faire penser à Extrêmement fort et incroyablement près de Jonathan Safran Foer, tant elle est hors norme.

Myth, Symbol, and Meaning in Mary Poppins by Giorgia Grilli Summary

The Mary Poppins that many people know of today--a stern, but sweet, loveable, and reassuring British nanny--is a far cry from the character created by Pamela Lyndon Travers in the 1930's. Instead, this is the Mary Poppins reinvented by Disney in the eponymous movie. This book sheds light on the original Mary Poppins, Myth, Symbol, and Meaning in Mary Poppins is the only full-length study that covers all the Mary Poppins books, exposing just how subversive the pre-Disney Mary Poppins character truly was. Drawing important parallels between the character and the life of her creator, who worked as a governess herself, Grilli reveals the ways in which Mary Poppins came to unsettle the rigid and rigorous rules of Victorian and Edwardian society that most governesses embodied, taught, and passed on to their charges.

Mary Poppins, She Wrote by Valerie Lawson Summary

The remarkable life of P.L. Travers, the creator of Mary Poppins. An arresting life…Lawson is superb at excavating the details. –Library Journal The spellbinding stories of Mary Poppins, the quintessentially English and utterly magical nanny, have been loved by generations. She flew into the lives of the unsuspecting Banks family in a children’s book that was instantly hailed as a classic, then became a household name when Julie Andrews stepped into the title role in Walt Disney’s hugely successful and equally classic film. But the Mary Poppins in the stories was not the cheery film character. She was tart and sharp, plain and vain. She was a remarkable character. The story of Mary Poppins’ creator, as this definitive biography reveals, is equally remarkable. The fabulous English nanny was actually conceived by an Australian, Pamela Lyndon Travers, who came to London in 1924 from Queensland as a journalist. She became involved with Theosophy, traveled in the literary circles of W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot, and became a disciple of the famed spiritual guru, Gurdjieff. She famously clashed with Walt Disney over the adaptation of the Mary Poppins books into film. Travers, whom Disney accused of vanity for “thinking you know more about Mary Poppins than I do,” was as tart and opinionated as Julie Andrews’s big-screen Mary Poppins was cheery. Yet it was a love of mysticism and magic that shaped Travers’s life as well as the character of Mary Poppins. The clipped, strict, and ultimately mysterious nanny who emerged from her pen was the creation of someone who remained inscrutable and enigmatic to the end of her ninety-six years. Valerie Lawson’s illuminating biography provides the first full look whose personal journey is as intriguing as her beloved characters.

The Real Life Mary Poppins by Paul Brody Summary

Among twentieth century authors, P. L. Travers was by far the most productive and famous to hail from the British colony of Australia. After a brief and modestly successful acting career, she moved to London and pursued her own brand of journalism. She was a well-regarded drama critic and travel author, and she became friends with many influential writers and thinkers on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Eventually, she found her greatest voice in the form of Mary Poppins, the mysterious and powerful Edwardian nanny. Thirty years after the first Poppins adventure is published, Walt Disney produced a live-action movie version, which has ingrained itself forever in the popular imagination. This biography traces Travers from her youth, her early career in acting and writing, the making of Mary Poppins, and more. LifeCaps is an imprint of BookCaps™ Study Guides.
