Penelope Fitzgerald's final masterpiece. One of the ten books -
novels, memoirs and one very unusual biography - that make up our
Matchbook Classics' series, a stunningly redesigned collection of
some of the best loved titles on our backlist. The year is 1794 and
Fritz, passionate, idealistic and brilliant, is seeking his
father's permission to announce his engagement to his 'heart's
heart', his 'true Philosophy': twelve-year-old Sophie. His
astounded family and friends are amused and disturbed by his
betrothal. What can he be thinking? Tracing the dramatic early
years of the young German who was to become the great romantic poet
and philosopher Novalis, The Blue Flower is a masterpiece of
invention, evoking the past with a reality that we can almost feel.
Her final book, it confirmed Fitzgerald's reputation as one of the
finest novelists of the 20th century.
