Frieda: Scenes from the Lfe of a von Richthofen

Frieda: scenes from the life of a von Richthofen is the first biography of Frieda von Richthofen Weekley Lawrence Ravagli not to be overwhelmed by the years she spent with D. H. Lawrence (the book will devote equivalent attention to the other periods of her life). It contains radically new information about her early years, especially about the period leading up to her encounter with Ernest Weekley in 1898; and it is the first biography of Frieda to take her own writing seriously, with chapters devoted to her 1934 book about Lawrence “Not I, But the Wind . . . ” and the memoir-writing which occupied the twenty years before her death in 1956.
