Oliphant, Margaret: The Days of My Life. HTML v1. 28 Aug 2009

"The Days of My Life" (1857) is an early novel by Margaret Oliphant; and is unusual in being written in the first person (I haven't yet seen another example in her other works). The novel relates the story of Hester Southcote over several years, from girl to wife and motherhood. Each chapter covers a particular day, providing snapshots of her story as it unfolds.

"[Margaret Oliphant] is the perfect example of that well-known literary puzzle, the writer highly rated and immensely successful in their own time who becomes relegated by posterity to a position only just above obscurity. ...Mrs Oliphant is valuable not only for the integrity of her stories and the grace and fluency with which she tells them, but for the unusual prominence she gives to domestic lives and female friendships. She was a thoroughly professional writer who supported her family entirely through her own labours, without neglecting them one iota. She should, perhaps, become the patron saint of all harassed women writers with demanding families." Margaret Forster, Times Literary Supplement (10 March 1995).

Wait a minute! Harry T uploaded H. Rider Haggard's bio, The Days Of My Life and then, moment's later, Sparrow uploads Margaret Oliphant's bio, with the same title! What are the odds! Run out and buy a lotto ticket!

Oliphant's 'The Days of My Life' is a novel rather than a bio - but I did have a mild nervous breakdown for a second thinking Harry had loaded the same book.

(I'm working on Oliphant's autobiography now.)
