Biografía del Autor
<p>Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was an English-American novelist and playwright, renowned for her children\'s literature. Born in Cheetham, England, she emigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 16, settling in Tennessee. Burnett soon embarked on a writing career, initially publishing stories in magazines. Her literary style is characterized by an acute sensitivity to the inner lives of her characters, often exploring themes of social inequality and the redemptive power of nature and imagination. She was proficient in depicting both the hardships and beauty of life through a lens that appealed to both young and adult readers alike. Her first novel, \'That Lass o\' Lowrie\'s\' (1877), gained critical acclaim, setting the stage for a prolific writing career. Burnett\'s masterpieces include the classic children\'s novels \'Little Lord Fauntleroy\' (1886), \'A Little Princess\' (1905), and \'The Secret Garden\' (1911), all of which have been cherished for generations and adapted into numerous films, stage plays, and television series. Later in her career, she penned \'The Head of the House of Coombe\' (1922), among other works, which further exhibited her narrative skill and cemented her legacy as a leading light in literary circles. Burnett\'s contribution to literature extends beyond her narratives; she played a significant role in shaping the modern notion of childhood and inspired readers to find magic in everyday life.</p>
