Suzanna,

Greetings from California! Like so many of the others here, I have read and reread all of the Poldark novels. What keeps bringing me back to them is the insights they offer into the era in which our own country was taking its first baby steps. I keep finding things that I'm sure Winston Graham must have invented to serve the story, and invariably I discover upon researching them that, no, that is exactly how the system worked at that time, which may explain why our Founding Fathers put this article into our Constitution or that amendment into our Bill of Rights. The frequent references to the Catholic Emancipation Act, for example, got me looking into the powers of a state church in the 18th century. Wow! No wonder freedom of religion was the first one granted in our First Amendment of our Bill of Rights.

Hi Suzanna,

Welcome from an Ohioian! Like many people on this forum, I have read all 12 novels several times over and each new reading is almost as fresh and immersive as the first. They've made me lose sleep, cry, laugh, and celebrate love and life as I grovel in the imagery and evocative language. My hands-down favorite character is Ross but I adore many of the others including Caroline, Dwight, and several from the later novels. As for the t.v. version, I think Aidan Turner is a perfect Ross. It is sometimes difficult to reconcile Debbie Horsfield's adaptation with the pace and facts of the books, but overall I think she is doing an admirable job. She has certainly introduced a whole new generation of adoring fans to the Poldark world.

Hello friends,

I am from Madison, Wisconsin and have just located your site. There is a bond here that I recognize and am pleased to have found this society. I have read all but 3 of the Poldark novels, watch the new series and have found them engaging and enlightening from multiple perspectives. I especially enjoy the vivid depiction of life in Cornwall and of course the complex and very human people that live through out the various stages of their lives. Some day I hope to visit Cornwall to enjoy its rugged beauty.

Kind regards,

Suzannaevileye
