Results from Google Books. Wingfield did have an awful childhood, primarily because her mother was, just as Wingfield would prove to be, a ghastly parent. She was indeed expected to lead the life of her set-the hunt, dances, cleverness not allowed here-but was soon old enough and rich enough to live as she pleased had she wanted to. Her husband's prohibition was one of Wingfield's many lies. Her illness was at the very least in part psychosomatic, not helped by her ingestion of drink and downers. The victims in this book were the spouse and offspring.

Mervyn Patrick Wingfield, 9th Viscount Powerscourt (husband)

Mervyn Patrick Wingfield, 9th Viscount Powerscourt (husband). Literature, Journalism and Publishing. If you require information from us, please use our Archive enquiry service.

Drawing from Wingfield's letters, diaries, papers, and memoirs and with the cooperation of two of Wingfield's children and her financial and literary advisers, Perrick examines Wingfield's relationships with her father, who oppsed her desire to be a poet, and her husband, a member of the Irish aristocracy. She also examines Wingfield's continual and vehement denial of her Jewish ancestry as well as her struggle with overwhelming physical pain and substance abuse. Perrick's informal style hinders neither her careful analysis of selected poems nor her useful insight into what drove Wingfield to live her life as she did. She concludes that Wingfield was 'an extraordinary woman and a poet in urgent need of redicovery.' This work, recommended for academic and public libraries, should help accomplish just that.--Library Journal
