About the Author
Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849–1924) was a British-American novelist and playwright, recognized for her children's literature and characterized by her vivid storytelling, use of rich detail, and a keen ability to explore social and psychological themes. Born in Cheetham, England, she emigrated with her family to the United States in 1865, where she would eventually find literary success. Burnett's breakthrough came with the publication of 'That Lass o' Lowrie's' in 1877, a novel that revealed her narrative dexterity and understanding of class disparities. Her lasting legacy, however, is primarily through enduring classics like 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' (1886), 'A Little Princess' (1905), and 'The Secret Garden' (1911), which continue to captivate readers with their exploration of resilience, transformation, and the healing power of nature. Burnett showcased her versatility as an author with works such as 'One Day At Arle' (1886), a piece that, like her more famous works, encased her flair for constructing intricate and emotional human experiences. An advocate of the Romantic tradition, Burnett's literature often weaved elements of the fantastic with the real, and her storytelling transcended the Victorian era to influence generations of readers and writers alike. Her contribution to children's literature is particularly noted for its progressive characterizations of childhood, stressing the importance of imagination and personal growth.
