Upon the death of her father, Pollyanna is sent to live with her Aunt Polly, who - as she sees it - is doing her duty by her estranged dead sister's child. Pollyanna meets all sorts of new people, many of them worn down by their own challenging lives, and some of them emotionally distant as a result of lost lovers. She manages to transform not only her aunt but many other townspeople with the 'Glad Game' her father taught her. Always look for the silver lining in every cloud and you'll be bound to find it. Pollyanna, the eternal optimist, plays the 'glad game' where she always tries to find something to be glad about, no matter how challenging. Also, everyone who comes into contact with Pollyanna is happily inspired by her wonderful, positive outlook and becomes a more enlightened person because of it. ------- Pollyanna is a best-selling 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter that is now considered a classic of children's literature, with the title character's name becoming a popular term for someone with the same very optimistic outlook. Also, the subconscious bias towards the positive is often described as the Pollyanna principle. The book was such a success that Porter soon produced a sequel, Pollyanna Grows Up (1915). Eleven more Pollyanna sequels, known as "Glad Books," were later published, most of them written by Elizabeth Borton or Harriet Lummis Smith. Further sequels followed, including Pollyanna Plays the Game by Colleen L. Reece, published in 1997. Facts and Trivia: Pollyanna has been adapted for film several times. Some of the best known are Disney's 1960 version starring child actress Hayley Mills, who won a special Oscar for the role, and the 1920 version starring Mary Pickford. Scroll Up and Grab Your Copy!

Eleanor H. Porter's 1913 classic is combined with its 1915 sequel in a single volume, with comfortable 14-point type and the original black-and-white illustrations by Stockton Mulford and H. Weston Taylor. Pollyanna is orphaned and moves in with her strict, duty-bound aunt. Pollyanna's intentional and contagious gladness spreads through the entire town, but it has no effect on Aunt Polly--until something happens that endangers Pollyanna's own ability to "just be glad." In the included sequel, Pollyanna goes to Boston to stay with a wealthy widow whose only nephew has been missing for eight years. Ruth Carew is a bitter, lonely woman who has given up on the search--until Pollyanna moves in with her. Can Pollyanna help Mrs. Carew find her lost nephew, or at least learn to enjoy life even in his absence?

"Pollyanna is all alone in the world, except for her cold and demanding aunt. And life in the small New England town is very different than in the West where Pollyanna grew up. Aunt Polly isn't used to children--or slammed doors or missed meals or any of the troublesome adventures that Pollyanna gets into. Will she ever accept this unexpected niece of hers, everyone wonders. But Pollyanna has a secret weapon, almost the only thing her father has left her. Soon the whole town will be playing the game that Pollyanna lives by. But will it help Pollyanna herself when her very life hangs in the balance?"--Bk. back cover.

책소개 폴리아나 (Pollyanna) by Eleanor H. Porter(엘리너 포터) 본 작품은 1913년 출판된 엘리너 포터의 대표작으로 항상 best young adult (최고의 청소년 문학)에 꼽혀온 작품이다. 하지만 이 작품은 성인이 읽더라도 조금도 손색이 없는 작품이다. 여러 번 영화로도 만들어져 무성영화 시절에는 Mary Pickford가 출연했고 1960년도 디즈니 영화에서는 Haley Mills가 출연하여 오스카 상을 거머 쥐었고 2003년에는 Georgina Terry가 출연했다. 항상 모든 일에 낙관적인 태도로 모든 일에서 ‘다행스럽고, 즐겁고, 기쁜’ 면을 찾으려고 하는 폴리아나는 11살에 고아가 되어 동부에 사는 쌀쌀맞고 엄격한 노처녀 이모 집에 살러 가게 되고 40세의 이모와 주변 사람들에게 ‘사는 것’을 가르치게 된다. 물론 폴리아나가 가야 될 길은 결코 순탄치 않지만……어떠한 상황에서도 폴리아나는 ‘희망’을 발견한다. 100년 전의 작품이지만 오늘날에도 널리 읽혀 Pollyanna Principle, Pollyannaism, Pollyannaish라는 단어는 사전에도 올라있을 정도가 되었다. Merriam-Webster 사전에 의하면 Pollyanna는 이렇게 정의되어 있다. someone who thinks good things will always happen and finds something good in everything “좋은 일은 항상 다가온다고 생각하고 모든 일에서 좋은 면을 찾는 사람” 역자의 말 Pollyanna는 Eleanor Porter의 대표작으로서 출판과 (1913) 함께 대성공을 거둔 작품으로서 1916년에는 Helen Hayes가 주연하여 Broadway에 올려지기도 했다. 청소년 문학치고는 결코 만만치 않은 작품이었고 경쾌하고 밝은 내용에 비하여 문체는 좀 고풍스럽다. 그래서 오히려 문장을 정확히 독해하는 데는 아주 좋은 연습이 될 수 있는 작품이다 많은 고통과 좌절을 갖고 오늘을 살아가고 있는 이웃들에게 이 책을 권한다. 몇 년 전에 어떤 출판사에서 종이책으로 번역되어 출판되었으나 매우 불완전한 번역이어서 이번에 완벽한 번역판을 독자들에게 소개하려고 노력하였다.
