March Hares: A London Romance - Harold Frederic

£12.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition. This is a facsimile reproduction of the 1896 printing of Harold Frederic's classic tale. The cover is clean and undamaged and the pages are clean and unmarked.

Set in London, March Hares is a story that chronicle the romance of two people: David Mosscrop who, on the morning of his thirtieth birthday, finds himself standing against the railing of Westminster Bridge ready to jump and Vestalia, the woman with whom he falls in love and finds a new meaning to his life.

As the novel progresses it begins to take on the attributes of a fairy tale: false identities are uncovered, family histories exposed, a rich and generous uncle appears, a secondary love-plot entwines itself with the first.

The characters of the novel are in no way tied to reality; besides their need for food, their demeanour and actions come across as insane. It is fiction posing as reality posing as fiction, teetering on modernism but finally resisting it and resorting instead to mock-naturalism. It is partly the stuff of popular romance, but the author plays with the genre, undermining the narrative by irony and unintentional lapses in mood from the sublime to the trivial to the ridiculous.
