The Story of a Marriage: The Letters of Branislaw Malinowski and Elsie Masson Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bronislaw Malinowski is known internationally as one of the founders of social anthropology, as the creator of modern fieldwork, as a great writer and an inspiring teacher. This book reveals for the first time his marriage and domestic life, and clarifies his relationships with colleagues, with his students and with a wide spectrum of friends.

Synopsis:

The letters in "The Story of a Marriage" were written by Malinowski and his wife, Elsie Masson, from 1916 to her death in 1935. They chronicle their meeting and their subsequent extraordinary marriage, showing Malinowski in a new light, not just as a teacher and scholar, but as husband, father and friend. His wife, so far largely unknown, is shown as a humorous, courageous and talented woman.

Synopsis:

Volume II begins with their arrival in England in April 1920 and Malinowski's lectures on Trobriand Economics at the London School of Economics and goes on to detail their lives together, and apart, until Elsie's death in 1935.
