Just like to say that on second look and having been able to spend a little more time reading through, I've really enjoyed this blog, it's very interesting and a lot more detailed than I first thought.  It discusses lots of topics which we've talked about here on our Forum and it was very refreshing to read reviews and other opinions on the Poldark books. 

Thanks so much for posting this up Ross biggrin

After a quick scan through, I agree with you QueenMab, there's been a great deal of effort put into this blog, but also some inaccuracies too as Bella and Morwenna pointed out.  Also seems a bit of a jumble of ideas and jumps around quite a bit.  I got the impression that the author had rushed through reading the books and in doing so had made the obvious mistakes, especially about Demelza having had a miscarriage. Not sure how you can put a sexual interpretation on the toads, unless it's something to do with George imposing his power over Ross by exerting his right to kill off and remove the toads, so rubbing his nose in the fact that he has ownership of Trenwith and ultimately over Elizabeth; thus boosting his alpha male ego which inflates his feelings of financial and sexual dominance over his rival.  Am still thinking that one through.  Will have to sit and read it through again.  Very interesting though!

Clearly they have put a lot of effort into writing the blog. So they should be congratulated for hard work. But... there are a couple of points which might be seen as personal opinions towards characters actions, rather than verfied facts.

Plus a few errors in there.

the toads...? I don't know!! George Warleggan is a toad?! No I'm being silly, well I'll ponder than one. The swans certainly have hidden meaning.

Hmm ...I read this last week. It doesn't explain things very well either, like the significance of the toads in the pond (what does that mean?) and I also pondered over Demelza's 'miscarriage'. I can't remember that.

An interesting Poldark analysis blog starting with "Ross Poldark". Though the follow up links are a little hard to find at the bottom of each page, several more of the books are reviewed in the same fashion up to at least "The Black Moon".
