It was typical of Germaine de Beauvais that she should have chosen New Zealand for her self-imposed exile - the other end of the earth from Paris, and her sophisticated musical circles there. As a musician she is intelligent dedicated, controlled; as a woman, passionate, vivid, proud, violent, selfish, as five men come to know. Most important is Brett Guymer, man of God, the brilliant preacher as proud as Germaine herself. What is it which draws them together, priest and idolater?

The kiss and the ghost : Sylvia Ashton-Warner and New Zealand( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sylvia Ashton-Warner, novelist and educationist, was extraordinarily famous in the 1960s. She maintained that young children best learn to read and write when they produce their own vocabulary, especially sex words – like ‘kiss’, and fear words – like ‘ghost’. This edited collection includes chapters by Mäori teachers and others who worked with Sylvia, as well as recollections of her son, Elliot Henderson. It reprints her Teaching Scheme that was originally published in New Zealand in the 1950s. And it celebrates her novels as brilliant and angry evocations of life in the wildness of New Zealand
Sylvia by Sylvia Ashton-Warner( Visual )

2 editions published between 1984 and 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a dramatisation based on two autobiographical novels by Sylvia Ashton-Warner who developed a liberated approach to teaching young, illiterate, mainly Maori pupils. In doing so she comes up against the male educational bureaucracy and an educational system based on teaching methods which she rejects as 'cultural imperialism'. Nine years in the novels, spent in several New Zealand locations, are compressed into a few months in a small, country town in the early 1940s. This is both a classroom drama and an emotional story about a young woman and her relationships during a time when she is attempting to come to terms with an overwhelming sense of isolation in a society that largely rejects the artist. Also available on VHS
