Dame Daphne du Maurier



Born in the early years of the 20th Century, Daphne du Maurier had a creative father – George du Maurier, who is responsible for introducing the doubtful character of Svengali to the world in the best seller, Trilby.



But whilst artistic skill may have been in the family, it is really more to the Brontes that you must look for the greatest influences on Daphne’s writings.


Daphne du Maurier wrote several short stories and a few novels in her twenties and in her early thirties she produced Rebecca, the novel on which the Oscar winning title from Hitchcock is based.
