Fowey Revisited

Dream of du Maurier,
On the far coast of Cornwall,
Clear water, grey sky.
I conjure up Rebecca
As she sails out to sea.

  1. Even though I have no idea where “du Maurier” is or what it means to conjure up Rebecca, I can’t help reading this one over and over. It has an ancient ring to it. I could imagine my great European ancestors evoking this call as a friend goes out to sea.

      It won’t ruin the end of the book to say that Rebecca died at sea. She was dead before the book begins, but is a shadowy, legendary presence throughout. The book was turned into a Hitchcock film.

      Du Maurier is a classic author from the early part of the twentieth century. I first visited Fowey before I read “Rebecca”, without realising that was the place that inspired the legendary Manderlay. It’s an amazing book.
