Présentation de l'éditeur

Anna Leonowens, a proper Englishwoman, was an unlikley candidate to change the course of Siamese (Thai) history. A young widow and mother, her services were engaged in the 1860's by King Mongkut of Siam to help him communicate with foreign governments and be the tutor to his children and favored concubines. Stepping off the steamer from London, Anna found herself in an exotic land she could have only dreamed of lush landscape of mystic faiths and curious people, and king's palace bustling with royal pageantry, ancient custom, and harems. One of her pupils, the young prince Chulalongkorn, was particularly influenced by Leonowens and her Western ideals. He learned about Abraham Lincoln and the tenets of democracy from her, and years later he would become Siam's most progressive king. He guided the country's transformation from a feudal state to a modern society, abolshing slavery and making many other radical reforms.

Weaving meticulously researched facts with beautifully imagined scenes, Margret Landon recreates an unforgettable portrait of life in a forgotten extotic land. Written more than fifty years ago, and translated into dozens of languages, Anna and the King of Siam (the inspiration for the magical play and film The King and I)continues to delight and enchant readers around the world.

Biographie de l'auteur

Margaret Landon first became interested in Anna Leonowens' story, when a friend recommended to her <I>The English Governess at the Siamese Court</I> which was published in 1870. Fascinated with the story and its potential, she contacted one of Anna's grandchildren, and in 1941 began to seriously research writing an updated (and vastly more entertaining) version of the book. <I>Anna and the King</I> is the product of her efforts. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The original King and I, but suffers by comparison to the film. 4 décembre 2016
Par N. Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The tragedy of this book is that it was turned into a classic film. On its own merits, the book is interesting, informative and entertaining. But we have seen the film so often, with its dramatization of the main points, the music and the characters, that the book falls a bit flat by comparison. It's a pity, as the books shades in the characters far more fully, and is far more realistic than the dramatisation. It must have been a sensation at the time of publishing, but from this vantage-point it was a bit of a yawn.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Anna is not a great storyteller. 4 mars 2017
Par Cornelia East - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book gets boring rather quickly. I bought it after seeing a performance of the revival of the musical made from Anna's life in "Siam" which I enjoyed enormously. This book had none of the charm.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating read. 22 novembre 2016

This classic narrative is an eye-opener to the actual characters we only have known from the musical, "The King and I." It was heartening to see the tremendous effects of Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation on the Siamese government.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 High drama in the Thai court of Mongkut 19 septembre 2001
Par Joanna D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Novelized account of Anna Leonowens, tutor to King Rama V (Chulalongkorn.) Landon fictionalized the diaries of Leonowens (The English Governess at the Siamese Court .) Leonowens herself portrayed the events with a lot of editing or outright deception, according to many. The account Landon gives here may stray far from reality, but as a novel it worked so exceptionally well that it became beloved (outside of Thailand where is it not in favor, portraying the king in a less-than-perfect light in a country that has deep reverence bordering on worship of their royals.)

Landon was a skilled writer, but none of her other books reached the success of "Anna." A fictionalized account of her own missionary experience in Asia (Never Dies the Dream) has conflict and well-drawn characters but falls flat compared to the rich material from Leononwens' own eventful life. Landon did good research on Leonowens and did impart some of the character of the self-made (and self-styled) adventurer into the novel. The musical did not fully elucidate the book's drama, to Landon's satisfaction and she felt it was cheapened by the Rogers and Hammerstein version--little of Mongkut's complexity comes through but still--it's loved. I've read many versions of Leonowens' story, some purchased in Thailand and none comes close to the Landon novel, though it may be lacking in truth in spots. The theme of slavery is well handled and the scene of the brass door and the shackled slave and her son is one you can't forget. Nor the execution of Tuptim and her monk lover.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Historical example of the power of the teacher 29 août 2013
Par Norman Mayfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I think this book ia an excellent example of how the philosophy taught in the classroom of one generation becomes the philosophy of government of the next. We see the socialism today in our government was taught in the schools and universities in the sixties. We may have won the Cold War but we did not win the war of ideologies against Marxism.
