Tomorrow the cortège of the Falcon would leave the piazza del Duca Carlo at ten . What it would consist of I did not know. Nobody seemed to know. But Aldo would be with it, that I felt certain. The leather jerkin bought at Pesaro was protection enough. I would spend the night in the open on one of the benches in the public gardens behind the piazza de Duca Carlo. When I told Paolo this he shrugged his shoulders.
You must remember that the flight of the Falcon, which will be the name of this season’s celebration-for such was the manner . This year you will be the courtiers at the Falcon’s palace.
You must remember that the flight of the Falcon, which will be the name of this season’s celebration-for such was the manner of Claudio’s passing-has never before been acted, and probably never will be again. I want it so to live in all your minds, and in the memories of everyone who sees it, that it will endure for all time. You will be that small body of dedicated men. You, the Arts students of the university, will, by your very nature, become the elite.
Daphne du Maurier's 1938 novel Rebecca made her one of the most successful writers of her time. Alfred Hitchcock's adaptation of the book won the Best Picture Oscar in 1940. He later used her material for The Birds. In 1969, du Maurier was created a Dame of the British Empire.
Dame Daphne du Maurier, Lady Browning, DBE (/duː ˈmɒrieɪ/; 13 May 1907 – 19 April 1989) was an English author and playwright. Although she is classed as a romantic novelist, her stories have been described as "moody and resonant" with overtones of the paranormal. Her bestselling works were not at first taken seriously by critics, but have since earned an enduring reputation for narrative craft.
Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. In 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published. A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children.
