    About “P.L. Travers

    • P.L. Travers

      Pamela Lyndon Travers was an Australian novelist, actress and journalist, popularly remembered for her series of children s novels about mystical nanny Mary Poppins.She was born to bank manager Travers Robert Goff and Margaret Agnes Her father died when she was seven, and although epileptic seizure delirium was given as the cause of death, Travers herself always believed the underlying cause was sustained, heavy drinking.Travers began to publish her poems while still a teenager and wrote for The Bulletin and Triad while also gaining a reputation as an actress She toured Australia and New Zealand with a Shakespearean touring company before leaving for England in 1924 There she dedicated herself to writing under the pen name P L Travers.In 1925 while in Ireland, Travers met the poet George William Russell who, as editor of The Irish Statesman, accepted some of her poems for publication Through Russell, Travers met William Butler Yeats and other Irish poets who fostered her interest in and knowledge of world mythology Later, the mystic Gurdjieff would have a great effect on her, as would also have on several other literary figures.The 1934 publication of Mary Poppins was Travers first literary success.Five sequels followed, as well as a collection of other novels, poetry collections and works of non fiction.The Disney musical adaptation was released in 1964 Primarily based on the first novel in what was then a sequence of four books, it also lifted elements from the sequel Mary Poppins Comes Back Although Travers was an adviser to the production she disapproved of the dilution of the harsher aspects of Mary Poppins s character, felt ambivalent about the music and disliked the use of animation to such an extent that she ruled out any further adaptations of the later Mary Poppins novels At the film s star studded premiere, she reportedly approached Disney and told him that the animated sequence had to go Disney responded by saying Pamela, the ship has sailed and walked away Travers would never again agree to another Poppins Disney adaptation, though Disney made several attempts to persuade her to change her mind.So fervent was Travers dislike of the Walt Disney adaptation and the way she felt she had been treated during the production, that well into her 90s, when she was approached by producer Cameron Mackintosh to do the stage musical, she only acquiesced upon the condition that only English born writers and specifically no Americans and no one from the film production were to be directly involved with the creative process of the stage musical This specifically excluded the Sherman Brothers from writing additional songs for the production even though they were still very prolific Original songs and other aspects from the 1964 film were allowed to be incorporated into the production however These points were stipulated in her last will and testament.Travers was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1977 She died in London in 1996.Although Travers never married, she adopted a boy when she was in her late 30s.

    • I m going to do just one review for the entire Mary Poppins series, and copy it to all of the these as I listened to them, one right after another, and they are rather blurred together as one lovely, entertaining, and altogether delightful story.I m not sure why I d not read these before now You d think, working in a library and having read aloud to my daughter every night for years, that somehow I would have hit upon the Mary Poppins books to read and I truly, truly wish I had Because we would [...]

    • Wow Mary Poppins and a little magic on a Midsummer s Night I thought this was fun, delightful, and certainly brought back some fond memories of the movie Mary Poppins is one of those characters whose demeanor is unrealistically upbeat and positive, never having a bad moment, or so it seems Mary Poppins takes the reader on trips to mythical places and magical moments as the reader journeys with her to learn about the Man in the Moon I the reader mustered up empathy for him because it s hard to im [...]

    • I think this one was my favorite of all the new Mary Poppins story I love that Everything has to be somewhere Just delightful.

    • A fun read filled with lots of silliness.This is the first Mary Poppins book I have read Overall, I enjoyed the book There is not so much in the form of traditional plot, of a rolling story, but it was entertaining nonetheless Some magic, some silliness, and lots of nonsensical talk Creative and imaginative work For reviews, check out my blog Craft Cycle

    • 4.5 stars This was written and illustrated in the 80s, and while it s still utterly enchanting, it doesn t capture the same atmosphere as the previous books QUITE as much Still, it was perfect to read yesterday on Midsummer Day and gave me many happy dreams I will also never look at the summer constellations the same way, and would like to spend some time getting to know them better.I wish I had read it Midsummer s Eve, but somehow I got my days off track Maybe next year.

    • I really liked this short story, much than I liked Mary Poppins in the Park which was pretty dull and repetitive having read the first three Mary Poppins novels beforehand Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane finally shook off the usual formula for the most part, anyway and did something a little bit new At the same time, it still felt nostalgic and snuggly, because it brought back all the good characters from the previous novels, and had a nice sentimental touch at its conclusion.Very enjoyable.Bo [...]

    • Should be entitled Mary Poppins and the Midsummers Eve Party That is all this one is One chapter of their celebrations in the park To be honest, I read this a month ago, and I can t remember a single detail That is just the type of book it is fluff.I ve enjoyed these, and know that children who love the mix of fairy tale and fiction would eat it all up, and maybe even beg for As for me, I m happy to be done This is simply of the same.

    • I have to admit that I was a bit distracted when I read this book It s an easy read and I made the unfortunate mistake of starting with book 5 in the series That s what I get for not organizing the books on my to read pile This particular book does not include any of Mary Poppins escapades that made their way into the movie of which I am much familiar That being said, this is a short, cute little book I don t really feel qualified enough to review it further.

    • Another Mary Poppins story This time a short one with only one storyline Mary and the kids are going to the park where all the stars come alive and visit them down on earth As always cute, funny, soothing Good children s literature.

    • After waiting years to finally get my hands on Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane.The book was so hard understanding what P.L.Travers was writing about I had to keep putting the book down every couple of minuets because my brain couldn t understand what she was writing.

    • Ok, I have had enough I kept trying to start and finish the book, but to be honest, they are beginning to get repetative in their storyline, and I am finding Mary to be a rather disagreeable character.I have given up reading these books, I made it through four, this is where I end it.

    • Book 4 was better than the third, and there she should have stopped The feel of this book was different and suddenly we do not hear the story through jane and michael, but through other characters will read nr 6, but do not expect much there

    • This was like a short story within one the of the other books, than a book all its own right Mary Poppins and the gang on Midsummer s Eve Told in a wistful tone, I honestly had trouble staying awake Not my favorite.

    • My least favorite of the series, but Josh liked it This book was published almost 50 years after the first one was published

    • For a day or two I followed Mary and the kids, played with Jane and Michael and listened to pieces of advice from Orion and his friends.I enjoyed being part of the magic.

    • Very quick Doesn t delve so much into what I like to call dreamland , it was much concise, yet still fits with what you ve learned about the characters.

    • I have always loved the Mary Poppins series ever since I was about six, and so does everybody else in my family I have to say this is a wonderful read for people from 5 100.
