Trilby (呢帽)

Summary: Trilby (1894) is a gothic horror novel by George du Maurier and one of the most popular novels of its time, perhaps the second best selling novel of the Fin de siècle period after Bram Stoker's Dracula. Trilby is set in the 1850s in an idyllic bohemian Paris. Though it features the hijinks of three lovable English artists — especially the delicate genius Little Billee — its most memorable character is Svengali, a Jewish rogue, a masterful musician, and an irresistible hypnotist. Trilby O'Ferrall, the novel's heroine, is a magnificent half-Irish girl working in Paris as an artists' model and laundress; all the men in the novel are in love with her. The relation between Trilby and Svengali forms only a small portion of the novel, which is mainly an evocation of a milieu, but it is a crucial one.

Summary: Although best remembered for his creation of the character of Svengali in his novel Trilby, George du Maurier was first and foremost an artist in black and white who delighted readers of Punch for over 30 years with his satirical drawings of upper-class English society. Besides illustrating his own novels, he also illustrated numerous books of the period by such authors as Henry James, Wilkie Collins and William Makepeace Thackeray.

Summary: Though well-known as the author of Trilby and the creator of Svengali, the writer-artist George Du Maurier had many other accomplishments that are less familiar to modern audiences. This collection traces Du Maurier’s role as a participant in the wider cultural life of his time, restoring him to his proper status as a major Victorian figure. Divided into sections, the volume considers Du Maurier as an artist, illustrator and novelist who helped to form some of the key ideas of his time. The contributors place his life and work in the context of his treatment of Judaism and Jewishness; his fascination with urbanization, Victorian science, technology and clairvoyance; his friendships and influences; and his impact on notions of consumerism and taste. As an illustrator, Du Maurier collaborated with Thomas Hardy, Elizabeth Gaskell and sensational writers such as M. E. Braddon and the author of The Notting Hill Mystery. These partnerships, along with his reflections on the art of illustration, are considered in detail. Impossible to categorize, Du Maurier was an Anglo-Frenchman with cultural linkages in France, England, and America; a social commentator with an interest in The New Woman; a Punch humourist; and a friend of Henry James, with whom he shared a particular interest in the writing of domesticity and domestic settings. Closing with a consideration of Du Maurier’s after-life, notably the treatment of his work in film, this collection highlights his diverse achievements and makes a case for his enduring significance.

Summary: He had but one virtue-his love of His art; or, rather, his love of himself as a master of his art-the master; for he despised, or affected to despise, all other musicians, living or dead-even those whose work he interpreted so divinely, and pitied them for not hearing Svengali give utterance to their music, which of course they could not utter themselves. 'Ils safent tous un peu toucher du biano, mais pas grand chose!' He had been the best pianist of his time at the Conservatory in Leipsic; and, indeed, there was perhaps some excuse for this overweening conceit, since he was able to lend a quite peculiar individual charm of his own to any music he played, except the highest and best of all, in which he conspicuously failed.

Summary: He was gifted with a magnificent, a phenomenal voice-a barytone and tenor rolled into one; a marvel of richness, sweetness, flexibility, and power-and had intended to sing at the opera; indeed, he had studied for three years at the Paris Conservatoire to that end; and there he had carried all before him, and given rise to the highest hopes. But his family, who were Catholics of the blackest and Legitimists of the whitest dye-and as poor as church rats had objected to such a godless and derogatory career; so the world lost a great singer, and the great singer a mine of wealth and fame.

Summary: George Louis Palmella Busson du Maurier was born on 6th March 1834 in Paris. Du Maurier was brought up believing his aristocratic grandparents fled France during the Revolution, leaving vast estates behind in France. However, his grandfather was only a tradesman who left Paris in 1789 to avoid charges of fraud and changed the family name to du Maurier. He studied art in Paris before moving to Antwerp, Belgium where he lost the sight of his left eye. On consulting an oculist in Düsseldorf, Germany, he met his future wife, Emma Wightwick. On 3rd January 1863, he married Emma at St Marylebone, Westminster. Over the next few years they had five children and several house moves. He joined the satirical magazine Punch in 1865 and drew two cartoons a week. Du Maurier commonly made fun of the affected manners of Victorian society, the bourgeoisie and members of the expanding middle class. As well as his black-and-white cartoons for Punch, he freelanced for several other periodicals: Harper's, The Graphic, The Illustrated Times, The Cornhill Magazine, and the religious periodical Good Words. His reputation was such that he was also asked to illustrate several novels. Owing to his deteriorating eyesight, du Maurier reduced his involvement with Punch in 1891. The family moved to Hampstead, and du Maurier began work on his life as a novelist. His first, 'Peter Ibbetson' (1891), was a modest success on publication and later adapted to a film, and an opera. His second novel 'Trilby' appeared in 1894. Its publication coincided perfectly with the gothic horror revival and the book was hugely popular becoming the best-selling book of 1895. The story of the poor artist's model Trilby O'Ferrall, transformed into a diva under the spell of the evil musical genius Svengali, created a sensation. It spawned soap, songs, dances, toothpaste, and even the city of Trilby in Florida, to be named after its heroine. The soft felt hat with an indented crown that was worn in the London stage production is still known as a trilby. His third novel, a long, mainly autobiographical piece, 'The Martian', was published after his death in 1898. George du Maurier died on 8th October 1898 at age 62 in Hampstead, London.

Summary: First published in 1894, the story of the diva Trilby O'Ferrall and her mentor, Svengali, has entered the mythology of that period alongside Dracula and Sherlock Holmes. Immensely popular for years, the novel led to a hit play, a series of popular films, Trilby products from hats toice-cream, and streets in Florida named after characters in the book. The setting reflects Du Maurier's bohemian years as an art student in Paris before he went to London to make a career in journalism. A celebrated caricaturist for Punch magazine, Du Maurier's drawings for the novel--of which hismost significant are included here--form a large part of its appeal.

Human Automata, Identity and Creativity in George Du Maurier's Trilby and Raymond Roussel's Locus Solus
  • Author : Adrienne M. Orr

  • ISBN Code: N.A

Summary: George Du Maurier's Trilby (1895) and Raymond Roussel's Locus Solus (1914) feature a unique figure, the human automaton, a human being who has been transformed into a machine. Rather than becoming objectified and dehumanized, thus transformed they produce great music and art defined by the single quality supposedly irreproducible by machines-- variability. Drawing multiplicity from the sameness of exact repetition in their art, the human automata's identities are equally capable of embodying otherness and oppositions in a plural identity that remains uniquely singular. This challenges contemporary attitudes towards automation as a fixative, deterministic and reductive, and ultimately dehumanizing, transformation. Linking automatism, otherness located within the self, and creativity, the human automaton becomes a marker of the potential for the malleability of identity that, in enriching creative expression, interrogates the boundary limits of human and machine.
