Fiction. Literature. HTML:"A perfect book"and basis for the Maggie Smith filmabout a teacher who makes a lasting impression on her female students in the years before World War II (Chicago Tribune).
"Give me a girl at an impressionable age, and she is mine for life!" So asserts Jean Brodie, a magnetic, dubious, and sometimes comic teacher at the conservative Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh. Brodie selects six favorite pupils to moldand she doesn't stop with just their intellectual lives. She has a plan for them all, including how they will live, whom they will love, and what sacrifices they will make to uphold her ideals. When the girls reach adulthood and begin to find their own destinies, Jean Brodie's indelible imprint is a gift to some, and a curse to others. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is Spark's masterpiece, a novel that offers one of twentieth-century English literature's most iconic and complex charactersa woman at once admirable and sinister, benevolent and conniving. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Muriel Spark including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's archive at the National Library of Scotland..… (más)

To say this book has little substance isn't giving it nearly enough credit, and I know this doesn't sound like the beginning of a four star review. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is though-provoking without being overwhelming, a book that I won't necessarily think about for the rest of my days, but maybe one that I would recommend. Need a short book to get you up and running again? A non-complicated story about women, about the complexities of womanhood? About the selfish sides of womanhood? The absurdities that come with breaking out of womanhood? This book accomplishes all this and more. It's a definite "read again". ( )

I've had this novel on my list for years and since I am having problems figuring out what I'm actually in the mood to read, I thought I'd finally dive in.

For those not familiar with the story, Miss Jean Brodie is what would have been considered a teacher with progressive ideas during the 1930s. She mentors a small group of elite students, taking them on field trips, inviting them to her house and confiding all types of details about her personal life. (I think presently, Miss Brodie's actions would be construed as a severe breach of personal/professional
boundaries.) As events unfold, Miss Brodie insists that she is in her prime and has chosen to dedicate her life to her students. In exchange, there is an unsaid expectation of loyalty from her curated "Brodie Group." Of course Miss Brodie's teaching tactics do not sit well with the other more conventional teachers and the headmistress.

The thing that struck me about Miss Brodie was she often employed the same tactics some of the other teachers used, which was telling students what to think, instead of teaching students critical thinking skills. At one point Miss Brodie states, "Who is the greatest Italian painter?" "Leonardo da Vinci, Miss Brodie." "That is incorrect. The answer is Giotto, he is my favourite." What a load of baloney thought I, as this is a completely subjective opinion not based on any fact or scientific methodology of assessment. Yes, Miss Brodie often introduced the students to unconventional subjects but she either filled in the blanks with her opinions (presented as facts) or she really didn't provide any deeper understanding of a subject, leaving the students to fill in the missing details with all sorts of conjecture. By the end of the book, I didn't really have much respect for Miss Brodie and I thought most of the students were a bunch of spoiled brats.

Mural Spark did present a thought provoking and well crafted story wrapped up in a short book. She lost me a few times with the random flash-forward scenes, until I figured out what was going on. Not a masterpiece in my opinion, but a classic worthy of reading. It does make one think, especially given how schools in certain states are currently trying to prevent teachers from addressing a whole host of subjects and are continuing to ban books that don't mesh with their warped myopic views based on some alternative reality.

Sharp and pitiless, a jewel with a razor's edge. Constant shifting perspectives under the deceptive appearance of an omniscient narrator make it impossible to fall into comfortable assumptions about the characters' motivations and their ethical stance. The story that takes shape is more the story of two jungle beasts devouring each other in turns, than anything else.
Weeks after reading, the perfect economy of the style still stays with me - not one word too many, nothing left unsaid but what needed to be left unsaid. ( )

Thoroughly recommend Miriam Margolyes' narration of this classic novel, don't think I would have got through it otherwise. Margolyes made the humour really stand out and added depth that I wouldn't have got from the page as I think the novel has dated since 1961. ( )

"Give me a girl at an impressionable age, and she is mine for life." The unconventional Miss Brodie teaches "her girls" things not in the standard curriculum of the Marcia Blaine School, with far-reaching, unforeseen consequences. Set in Edinburgh in the 1930's. Insightful, disturbing, very well done. Brilliantly dramatized by Maggie Smith and Gordon Jackson, among others, in 1969. ( )

She writes with cool exactness, a firm voice (each tale has its own) and compassionate wit. In her new novel (originally published last fall, in shorter form, in The New Yorker), she deals with a violent woman whose romantic spirit is impatient with all but the Absolute.

The boys, as they talked to the girls from Marcia Blaine School, stood on the far side of their bicycles holding the handlebars, which established a protective fence of bicycle between the sexes, and the impression that at any moment, the boys were likely to be away.

1961 novel. "La Vera Miss Brodie" is not the same work as "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie": it is an Italian article. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie = Gli anni in fiore della signorina Brodie (or Gli anni fulgenti di miss Brodie)
