The Scapegoat, Daphne du Maurier's eleventh novel, first appeared in 1957. Almost twenty years earlier, Rebecca had rocketed to bestsellerdom and made the du Maurier name synonymous with romance.

Dame Daphne du Maurier, Lady Browning, DBE (/duː ˈmɒrieɪ/; 13 May 1907 – 19 April 1989) was an English author and playwright. Although she is classed as a romantic novelist, her stories have been described as "moody and resonant" with overtones of the paranormal. Her bestselling works were not at first taken seriously by critics, but have since earned an enduring reputation for narrative craft.
Du Maurier's tightly woven, highly suspenseful plots and her strong characters make her stories perfect for adaptation to film or television. Among her many novels that were made into successful films are Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, Frenchman's Creek (1941), Hungry Hill (1943), My Cousin Rachel (1952), and The Scapegoat (1957). Her short story "The Birds" (1953)was brought to screen by director Alfred Hitchcock in a treatment that has become a classic horror-suspense film.

I was looking at myself. Рейтинг: 5. 11. Рейтинг: 4.

But Daphne du Maurier's descriptions of the little girl's religious fervour, as well as that of her aunt Blanche, serve well to heighten the tension at various points. All Daphne du Maurier's novels are tightly plotted, and this one, like "My Cousin Rachel" is full of suspense, coincidence, hints and dark secrets. On quite a few occasions she will use personification, or even the pathetic fallacy, to influence and further heighten the atmosphere, such as when
