Read full description of the books Mujeres excelentes:

Mujeres excelentes está considerada una de las mejores novelas de Barbara Pym. Mildred Lathbury, la narradora, es una mujer soltera que vive en Londres y ocupa su tiempo en diversas tareas en la parroquia, en tomar el té con las amigas, en obras de caridad y en satisfacer las necesidades de los demás. Es inteligente y observadora, pero también tímida e insegura, en parte debido a su soltería, pues muchos querrían verla casada ya a sus treinta y pocos años. Además de sus buenos amigos, el vicario Julian Malory y su hermana Winifred, Mildred intimará con sus vecinos, los Napier, recién instalados en el piso de abajo de su casa. Conocerá también a Allegra, una viuda que se aloja en la parroquia, y a un sinfín de personajes más. Mildred se verá implicada en diversos asuntos de índole sentimental.
Con una extraordinaria y sutilísima ironía, Barbara Pym traza en Mujeres excelentes un espléndido retrato sobre la cotidiana realidad de unos personajes, cuyas vidas se debaten entre sus sentimientos y sus convencionalismos.
En 1977, en un artículo-encuesta en el suplemento cultural del Times, el crítico lord David Cecil y el poeta Philip Larkin afirmaron que la obra de Barbara Pym era una de las más importantes e influyentes de la literatura.

Read information about the author

Ebook Mujeres excelentes read Online! After studying English at St Hilda's College, Oxford, she served in the Women's Royal Naval Service during World War II.

The turning point for Pym came with a famous article in the Times Literary Supplement in which two prominent names, Lord David Cecil and Philip Larkin, nominated her as the most underrated writer of the century. Pym and Larkin had kept up a private correspondence over a period of many years. Her comeback novel, Quartet in Autumn, was nominated for the Booker Prize. Another novel, The Sweet Dove Died, previously rejected by many publishers, was subsequently published to critical acclaim, and several of her previously unpublished novels were published after her death.

Pym worked at the International African Institute in London for some years, and played a large part in the editing of its scholarly journal, Africa, hence the frequency with which anthropologists crop up in her novels. She never married, despite several close relationships with men, notably Henry Harvey, a fellow Oxford student, and the future politician, Julian Amery. After her retirement, she moved into Barn Cottage at Finstock in Oxfordshire with her younger sister, Hilary, who continued to live there until her death in February 2005. A blue plaque was placed on the cottage in 2006. The sisters played an active role in the social life of the village.

Several strong themes link the works in the Pym "canon", which are more notable for their style and characterisation than for their plots. A superficial reading gives the impression that they are sketches of village or suburban life, with excessive significance being attached to social activities connected with the Anglican church (in particular its Anglo-Catholic incarnation). However, the dialogue is often deeply ironic, and a tragic undercurrent runs through some of the later novels, especially Quartet in Autumn and The Sweet Dove Died.
