Yintoni esiyaziyo ngobomi bokwenyani boDurrells kunye nokuzonwabisa kwabo eCorfu?



Ukusukela ekubukeni i-The Durrells, ungalindela ukuba u-Lawrence onyanisekileyo ngumntwana ka-Durrell okhulele ukubhala ngobomi bakhe kwesi siqithi kwi-My Family and Other Animals. Kodwa eneneni nguGerry omncinci obhale i-autobiographical Corfu trilogy esele iguqulwe yi-ITV.

Kodwa yayingobani usapho lobomi bokwenyani- kwaye lisondele kangakanani ebomini le drama? Kwenzeka njani ukuba baphelele kwesi siqithi, kwaye kwenzeka ntoni kubo ebomini kamva?

Kwenzeka njani ukuba iiDurrells ziphele eCorfu?



ULouisa Durrell, umyeni wakhe kunye nabantwana babo abane bonke bazalwa eIndiya ngexesha leBritish Raj. Injineli ehambahambayo uMnumzana uDurrell wasweleka ngo-1928, ngoko ke uLouisa wathatha abathathu abancinci (uLeslie, uMargo noGerald) wabasa eNgilane apho bazama khona ukufumana ipenshini yomhlolokazi. Unyana omkhulu kunabo bonke uLawrence wayesele ethunyelwe kwisikolo sokubhoda eNgilane ukuba afundiswe, into awayengonwabanga ngayo ngokuqinisekileyo.

Ngo-1935 uLawrence wayehlala eCorfu kunye nenkosikazi yakhe yokuqala uNancy (nangona kuthotho lwe-TV uLarry engatshatanga kwaye engatshatanga). Kwakungunyaka apho umama wakhe, udade wabo kunye nabantakwabo bafika bazokuzimanya naye kwesi siqithi.



Yintoni eyenzekileyo kwi-Durrells e-Corfu?

UGerald waqala ukuqokelela kunye nokugcina izilwanyana zasekhaya njengezilwanyana zasekhaya, ekhuthaza umdla wobomi kwindalo kunye nolondolozo. Wayefundiswe ekhaya kwaye wavunyelwa ukuba abaleke. Inkwenkwana ikwafumene umhlobo kunye nomcebisi kugqirha wamaGrike, isazinzulu, imbongi kunye nefilosofi uTheodore Stephanides.

Aba babini baphonononga isiqithi kunye, behamba nentombi encinci kaTheodore uAlexia (ongabonakaliyo kuthotho).

Nangona uLarry kunye nenkosikazi yakhe ekuqaleni babehlala nosapho lonke endlwini yabo eKontokali, ekuqaleni kuka-1936 esi sibini sitshatileyo safudukela kwilali encinci yokuloba. ULarry kamva wenza ubuhlobo nombhali uHenry Miller, owatyelela ngo-1939.

Inoveli yokuqala kaLarry, uPied Piper of Lovers, yapapashwa ngo-1935. Wasebenzisa amava akhe ekukhuleni kwakhe e-Bhritane e-India, ukuswelekelwa ngumzali, kunye nexesha lakhe elinzima lokungena xa wayethunyelwa esikolweni eNgilane. Inoveli ke iqhubela phambili ekufumaneni kwakhe isini kunye nobuntu bakhe obunomdla wothando.

Inoveli ye-semi-autobiographical yamkelwe ngendlela edanisayo, ukufumana uphononongo olunobushushu kunye nokushicilelwa okuncinci. Khange iphinde ipapashwe ngexesha likaLawrence.

Kwenzeka ntoni ukuqala kweMfazwe yesibini (II) yeHlabathi?

IiDurrells zafika ngo-1935 zahlala eCorfu de kwangowe-1939, xa kwaqhambuka iMfazwe yesibini (II) yeHlabathi kwanyanzeleka ukuba uninzi losapho lubuyele eNgilani ukuze lukhuseleke. Ngothotho lwesithathu sele sikhona ngo-1937, kodwa-ngaphandle kokukhankanywa ngokufutshane kukaHitler-isithunzi semfazwe yehlabathi asikaqali ukwenzeka kusapho lwaseDurrell.

Sisahleli njengabantu abangazi nto, ndicinga ukuba ungathi, uCallum Woodhouse, odlala indawo kaLeslie, uxelela iRadioTimes.com.

UGerald Durrell (1925-1995): UGerry oselula wakhula waba yindalo yendalo, umlondolozi kunye nombhali. Emva kokubuyela eNgilani wayesebenza kwi-aquarium nakwivenkile yezilwanyana zasekhaya, kwaye nangona wabizelwa emkhosini ngo-1943, waxolelwa kwezonyango.

Emva kwemfazwe wajoyina iWhipsnade Zoo njengomgcini omncinci, emva koko waqalisa ukhenketho kwihlabathi liphela ukubuyisa izilwanyana ezingaqhelekanga e-UK.

Kodwa ukugxila kwakhe kulondolozo kwakungahambelani nemizi yogcino-zilwanyana ngelo xesha, ke usebenze ekuchazeni ngokutsha indima yezu.

UGerry waseka iDurrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, ngoku ekhokelwa ngumfazi wakhe wesibini, u-Lee McGeorge Durrell, emva kokubhubha kwakhe ngo-1995.

Uyakhunjulwa ngoku ngokuthengisa kwakhe iCorfu Trilogy, eqala ngeNtsapho yam kunye nezinye izilwanyana emva koko kulandelwa ziintaka, izilwanyana kunye nezihlobo kunye negadi yezithixo.

ULawrence Durrell (1912-1990): Ebizwa emva kukayise uLawrence Samuel Durrell, uLarry waba ngunozakuzaku kunye nombhali owatshata amatyeli amane kwaye waphila kwihlabathi jikelele. Umsebenzi wakhe odumileyo yiAlexandria Quartet (uthotho lweenoveli ezibekwe eJiphutha).

NjengoGerald wabhala nangexesha lakhe kwiCorfu, nangona inoveli yakhe yengoma iProspero's Cell iye yakhunjulwa kancinci. Iakhawunti kaLarry ayithethi ngonina okanye nabantakwabo ngaphandle kukaLeslie, nangona umfazi wakhe wokuqala ebonakaliswa.

Ekugqibeleni uLarry wazinza eSommières, eFrance, apho wasweleka khona ngoNovemba 1990.

UMargaret Durrell (1920-2007): UMargo Durrell wabaleka kwindlu yokuhlala e-Bournemouth emva koqhawulo-mtshato, kwisixeko awayehlala kuso umama wakhe uLouisa de kwasekufeni kwakhe ngo-1964.

Ukuvuma ukwazi kwabantu, wabhala iakhawunti ebizwa ngokuba Yintoni eyenzekileyo kuMargo? Ebalise ibali leendwendwe zakhe ezi-eclectic, uthando lwakhe kunye ne-trombonist, kunye nokutyelelwa ngamanye amaxesha nguGerry kunye nokuhamba kwakhe kwezilwanyana.

Ngapha koko, ingqokelela yezilwanyana kaGerry ekuqaleni yayihlaliswe kwigadi engasemva kunye negaraji ngaphambi kokuba ifumane indawo entsha.

U-Leslie Durrell (ngo-1918 ukuya ku-1983): Umntwana wesibini omdala kaLouisa akazange afune ukubonwa luluntu. Emva kokubuya kolu sapho ukusuka eCorfu ukuya eNgilane, wachitha imfazwe esebenza kumzi-mveliso weRAF kwaye wazala unyana nentombazana yentsapho yaseCorfiot uMaria Kondos, owabuya nabo eNgilane.

Amashishini akhe awaphumelelanga (kubandakanywa nomzamo wokuqhuba ifama eKenya) kwaye kamva wasebenza njengendawo yokugcina iimpahla ehotele. U-Leslie wasweleka kwi-1983.
