Black Beauty – a review

Black Beauty is an autobiography of a Horse. The book was written by Anna Sewell and was first published in 1877.


The story is told in the first person or should we say "first horse" and is an autobiographical journey narrated by a horse named Black Beauty. The journey begins with his carefree days as a colt on an English farm and moves on to his difficult times pulling cabs in London and ends with his happy retirement in the country.

About the author

Anna Sewell was born in Norfolk, England. She was largely educated at home as she was disabled due to an accident. Black Beauty was her only publication which she wrote between 1871 and 1877

.Synopsis of the story

Black Beauty is a handsome horse, who is born and raised in happy circumstances. But in Victorian England horses were used to draw carriages. Black Beauty is first sold to a good home, but as time passes he is sold again and again--and not always to people who treat him kindly or even to those who give him regular care. Finally Black beauty finds his peace after retirement.During his long journey Black Beauty encounters many adventures, like a stable fire and a dangerous bridge. Horse Ginger and the kind cabbie Jerry are memorable characters he meets en-route his journey of life.

Theme of the story

The story highlights everlasting values like kindness and understanding. It is a valuable book in terms of good reading and imparting right values to children. It is well written in a language that is best suited for young children. The adventures encountered by Black Beauty are narrated so realistically that it keeps the children engrossed till the end of the book.Written as if told by the horse, makes the book more interesting as it gives a different perspective to the story. It is a touching tale beautifully portrayed; a fine book that every parent should place in the hands of their children.The engrossing book is a novel of education for generations of schoolchildren to the present day. While outwardly teaching animal welfare, it also contains symbolic lessons about how to treat people with kindness, sympathy and respect.

A must for every child

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post,
I'll try to get the hang of it!

At this time it sounds like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.

(from what I've read) Is that what you are using
on your blog?

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought
I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
