The stove itself is simply a stage prop, a main ornament if you will, around which Ouida invents detail about a very sensitive young boy and his response to the problems and pressures of life. Little August's fantasy world during his maturation is not radically unlike that of children in any era, or even of adults, for that matter, so if Ouida has done her work well she will bring her protagonist after his long imaginary journey back to the real world and to himself. We shall see. The answer is twofold.
First of all, although she did not normally like children, Ouida made an exception in the case of Bertie Danyell, whose artist mother had done a rather flattering portrait of her. The bond between Bertie and Ouida was undoubtedly genuine, since it was for Bertie that she first invented the charming tales later published in Bimbi.
Secondly, Ouida, who until her death was possessed of a streak of vanity, was determined to dedicate the published work to a child—no less than the little Italian [End Page ] crown prince who later was to become ex-King Victor Emmanuel III. The copy of Bimbi which the little prince received was bound in white vellum and bore a copy of his monogram.
