A very warm welcome to the forum Clary, it's a pleasure to have you join us. Like many of us, I've enjoyed reading your blogs and look forward to future posts and discussion on everything Poldark and Winston Graham related.
Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
A sudden warmth flooded the cove ...and he knew he was home.
Hi Clary and a warm welcome to the Forum. I've read several of your interesting blogs as well so look forward to many future discussions and analyses of all of Winston Graham's works, most of all of course Poldark.

Hello Clary, I too have found your blogs interesting and look forward to your postings.

Hello, Clary and welcome. Its always great to see new members who appreciate and enjoy Winston Grahams Poldark. I think he is one of the best English Authors and one who tends to be overlooked. His range of books and subjects is diverse and uncommon and his understanding and sensitive writing of human behaviour is amazing. I look forward to reading your blog.
I joined this forum this past weekend and want to say "hello!" and introduce myself. I'm a literary scholar and retired college teacher; one of my areas is the 18th century and I fell in love with Graham's Poldark novels about 4 or more years ago. Since then I've read the 12 Poldark novels and other of his books when I find them and when I can. I've also watched both mini-series and the 1996 film and enjoy them all.
I am also a blogger and have written blogs on the 12 novels (one or more each) and a few blogs on the mini-series. I thought it might be of interest to others who like Graham's work and these Poldark books and films if I made a website gathering everything together in one spot:
I'd like to create more interest and respect for Graham's historical fiction especially and ran a panel on historical fiction set in the 18th century and gave a paper on the first 7 novels on the topic of liberty: "I have a right to choose my own life ... " (It's linked into the website page). I hope to write more on more topics.
I'm glad to be among you to share information and pleasure.
