Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE PIANO by Jane Campion & Kate Pullinger.

"Ada, together with her nine-year-old illegitimate daughter Flora, and her piano, leave Scotland to arrive in the remote bush of 19th-century New Zealand for a marriage arranged by her father. Although mute, she does not consider herself silent as her piano is the vehicle of her expression."

Amazon.com review:

"FIVE STARS!!!! It is easy to misunderstand The Piano if you read it literally. But The Piano is an allegory rich in symbolism. Read that way, this story resonates in hearts of women who read it and understand. For example, when she leaves the piano on the beach within the reach of the incoming tide and looks back as she leaves towards her husband's home, we can see the choices we sometimes have to make in life. There are times when we must leave an important creative part of our life behind, perhaps to marry or for another reason. To view this book (or the movie) literally is to miss the point of the novel."
