湖水地方もいつかのんびり行ってみたいなあ。

Mr. Potter introduced Beatrix to the artist John Everett Millais. She visited his studio often and had a chance to see how an artist worked and lived.

p10
エヴァレット・ミレー(代表作「オフィーリア」)と子供のころに親交があったなんて素敵ですね。

VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM
It owns the largest collection of Beatrix Potter's drawings, manuscripts, letters, and photographs in the world.

p20
この美術館に収められているのですね。

From the whiskers on mice to the fur of a rabbit to the skin of a lizard, Beatrix felt it was important to show animals exactly as they appear in nature. Their charm and realistic appearance are what still appeal to children today.

p56
ふむ。リアルなところが子供に受けているのですね。

In 1905, Norman Warne proposed to her. Beatrix was almost forty years old at the time. She knew her parents would not approve. They believed Beatrix should marry someone from a higher social class. Norman and his family were tradespeople --- people who had to work for a living. But Beatrix and Norman loved each other, and Beatrix felt she had the right to make this decision herself.

p57
このときにNormanに起こったことはなにか不自然な気が。。。。

Just as planned, she started earning money from the farm, as well. Beatrix had found something else that she enjoyed and was good at.

p71
実際に農牧業をする、ってアクティブですね。

It is clear that they care for each other very much and are determined to make a life together. Beatrix was forty-seven years old and had waited a long time for this happy moment.

p78
信頼で結ばれた自立したカップル、いいなあ。

Fruing discovered Beatrix wasn't being paid all the money that she was owed! Frederick Warne & Co. was in trouble. And it turned out that Harold Warne had been stealing money from his own family's company. In April 1917, Harold went to prison for forgery.

p83
うーん、こんなトラブルにも巻きこまれていたんですね。

Beatrix had published twenty-three best-selling books in fewer than thirty years. What an accomplishment!

p91
ほんとすごいですね!

On Beatrix's seventieth birthday, the Girl Guides surprised her with a special party. They came to the farm dressed as characters from her books. Beatrix was deeply touched.

p96
いいですね。

あんなにいろいろ反対されたお母さんを晩年引き取って一緒に暮らしているのもえらいなあ。
