673 thought on “Excellent Women (Penguin Classics)

  1. I couldn t quite read Pym until someone told me to think of her in the same way I do Jane Austen That changed everything for me Excellent Women was the book I started with and find the most accessible I particularly like the recorded version which is read in a dry, sardonic tone the underscores the cleverness and humor so present in the prose Small throwaway lines will make you laugh and stay with you long after you ve set this book aside.


  2. I m a Pym fan from way back Enjoyed this book very much If you like Jane Austen, you should give Pym a try I sat down at the table without any very high hopes, for both Julian and Winifred, as is often the way with good, unworldly people, hardly noticed what they ate and drank, so that a meal with them was a doubtful pleasure Mrs Jubb, who might have been quite a good cook with any encouragement, must have lost heart long ago Tonight she set before us a pale macaroni cheese and a dish of boiled [...]


  3. Barbara Pym writes about individuals who should be imprisoned and suffocated by their gender, their education, their solitude, their class, their poverty, their tiny enclosed social circle and yet somehow aren t The Excellent Women of the novel are those genteel, sort of educated English ladies fallen on hard times and destined for a narrow spinsterhood who are continuously predated upon by others powerful men, the sexually adventurous, women who like adventurous bad powerful men, and just plain [...]


  4. Mildred Lathbury is an excellent woman Single, living alone in early 1950s England, she spends her days helping out at the local church, organizing the f tes and jumble sales, eking out a living in times of post war rationing and generally making herself useful Friends with the local vicar Julian and his sister Winifred, as well several other excellent women , Mildred is uniquely placed to observe and comment on the social s and peculiarities of her world When anthropologists Rocky and Helena Na [...]


  5. I sometimes crave a simple, hud, romance a la Jane Austen, but there is no new Jane Austen so, this book is great for that purpose.Don t you miss those old good times when people were polite and prude and appearances mattered and a bad action got its deserved scorn and feelings seemed greater than they are now When the Excellent Women were praised and appreciated instead of seen as dull and old fashioned.Besides that, the pace was a little slow in the beginning but the humor and the scenes were [...]


  6. I don t think I ever read anything by this author before but, based on this story, I will certainly be on the look out for something else by her This novel was really amusing as it looked pretty keenly into the absurdities of everyday life in maybe 1950 s England I suppose on one level it is sad because the heroine is rather an old maid with not much in the way of material wealth but she is a thoroughly nice woman who tries to help her friends and neighbors with the little tangles they get thems [...]


  7. Set in post war, shabby London the wrong side of Victoria station , the heroine is a nondescript spinster in her thirties whom other people overlook or make use of when it suits them.I couldn t subsist on a diet of Barbara Pym, but now and then when, as now, for example, I am gently convalescing she hits the spot.Page 255 Perhaps there can be too much making of cups of tea, I thought Did we really need one I even said as much to Miss Statham and she looked at me with a hurt, almost angry look Do [...]


  8. Never having heard of Barbara Pym before, our book group chose Excellent Women as the book for May I m hooked The vocabulary plunges the reader into the UK fifties where gentile unmarried ladies obeyed unwritten rules of etiquette and behaviour Mildred s antics and resposes to potential emotional entanglements her own and those of others are an absolute joy to read Love the names of characters too although my modern mind struggled to interpret Everard Bone in any other way but rudely Super book [...]
