Arnim, Elizabeth von: The Princess Priscilla's Fortnight: v1, 21 May 2017

Mary Annette Beachamp was born in 1866, in Australia, to an English father and an Australian mother. She was taken by her parents to England when she was three, and spent the rest of her life in England, Germany and other parts of Europe, and the USA where she died in 1941. She married Count Henning von Arnim-Schlagenthin in 1890, and had four daughters and one son with him. They separated in 1908, and he died in 1910.

Until the 1980s her twenty or so books were attributed to 'The Author of Elizabeth and her German Garden' or to 'Elizabeth'. She was eventually known to her family and friends as 'Elizabeth', and signed her personal letters as 'e.'

The Princess Priscilla's Fortnight was published in 1905, and was her sixth book. It was written in the third person, and the writer speaks directly to the reader several times. The book tells of the escape of a very sheltered German Princess to a small English community, and the chaos she causes there because of her ignorance of normal daily life.

The source text was taken from online-literature.com, and checked against the Macmillan 1920 edition. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotes, replaced italics, diacritics, and scene breaks, and made changes to hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.
