Stories of Trees, Woods, and the Forest (Everyman’s Library Pocket Classics Series)

We rated this book:


Anyone who loves the solitude of forests and worships at the foot of magnificent trees will want to have this collection of stories in their library. The editor has chosen from among the most talented authors in this collection.

From Ovid to Jane Austen, the stories are some of their best work. Notable among them is the stunning work by Daphne Du Maurier, “The Apple Tree.” That story tells of a widower who is stunned by seeing the shape of his departed wife in the tree. It is a story of obsession and an allegory for the repressed rage simmering within a long tedious marriage, much like Rebecca.

This book is published by Everyman’s Pocket Classics, which treats each of their volumes like a precious collectible: beribboned and with high-quality paper and a lovely dust jacket. For those of us given to wandering in the woods, this book is as good a substitution as any reader would want.
