MYTH, SYMBOL AND MEANING IN MARY POPPINS THE GOVERNESS AS PROVOCATEUR
by Giorgia Grilli
Published by Routledge. 1st. 2007
Slightly better than very good condition. The Mary Poppins immortalised by Disney is a far cry from the character created by Pamela Lyndon Travers in the 1930s. Drawing on the social history of the governess in England, Grilli rescues Mary Poppins from the sentimental Disney treatment and restores her to her truly revolutionary character. Translated by Jennifer Varney. Yellow glazed pictorial boards. 178 pages includes index.
