'Menabilly, My Love...'


Author: Seraphima Bogomolova

Language: English


The non-fiction publication 'Menabilly, My Love...' focuses on the analysis of the text of the book ‘Rebecca’ (1938) by Daphne du Maurier, and its plentiful riddles connected to the Rashleigh family and their Cornwall estate, Menabilly, that served Daphne du Maurier  as an inspiration for drawing the fictional Manderley. The particular attention is paid to the symbolism and coded meanings of the content, including words, phrases, and sentences, as well as inversion and mirroring techniques of story-telling.
