michelleeb: About to start reading The Enchanted Castle by Edith Nesbit - this copy is a bit battered because I’ve had it for forty years. I always loved this story best, and there was a TV series.

michelleeb: I always enjoyed The Enchanted Castle because I was scared by the statues/mannequins coming to life - which years later, I realised was followed through by Edith Nesbit’s short ghost story Man-Sized in Marble

GarsShortReads: 2. MAN-SIZE IN MARBLE, EDITH NESBIT. Nesbit’s remembered for THE RAILWAY CHILDREN, but apparently she was also a member of the Golden Dawn, so we can probably add her to the list of people who bullied poor Willie Yeats.

PrincessHamira: Edith Nesbit's biography of Doris Langley-Moore was published in 1933. As a collector Doris maintained that 'A good specimen is one which is not only in sound condition and of nice quality, but which embodies the features of its period in an entirely representative way./2

SamAnorac: This collection of short stories are my favourites of Edith Nesbit’s work. And I had them all. My great Aunt had an attic full of Victorian and Edwardian books, childrens and adult, and I devoured the lot without mercy. The birth of magic realism is here… 7/9

NoemiBuratti: The Railway Children is a children's book by Edith Nesbit, first published in 1906. It has been adapted for the screen several times, most notably those of 1968, 1970 and 2000 with Jenny Agutter. It is a story of courage, strength of the heart, of a united family.

JohnKittmer: Edith Nesbit’s springtime song learned in childhood comes to mind. We have a silver birch at our boundary. The bark is lovely as it peels. “The silver birch is a dainty lady, She wears a satin gown; The elm tree makes the old churchyard shady, She will not live in town.”

RomGothSam: Well, a full day but I got to talk trans readings of Frankenstein, queer readings of Edith Nesbit's shadow, why Freud was an asshole and many of his theories and assumptions are garbage sauce, and about the very concept of the monstrous. A pretty good day, all in all.

RomGothSam: Tomorrow I'm teaching Edith Nesbit's The Shadow, Freud's The Uncanny, Frankenstein and Liverpool Poetry. A bit all over the place but it makes for an interesting day!

SolomonWakeling: In 1913 Edith Nesbit said “It is astonishing how little harm comes to children through books” and said that from the age of 10+ they should be given the run of a good general library. A century later and we’re still having the same conversations.

blogmywiki: Climbing the wooden hill, it occurs to me that our house, not far from where Edith Nesbit lived, was built shortly before The Railway Children was published. We still have visible shards of its original wallpaper. What family dramas have they witnessed?

MrRayNewman: Reading ‘The Story of the Amulet’ by Edith Nesbit and enjoying it's portrait of Edwardian London already: “...Kentish Town Road where the trams rush up and down like mad at all hours of the day and night, and seem as though, if anything, they would rather run over you than not.”
