Viola Meynell's biography of her mother (1847-1922) is firstly a record of wide-ranging literary activity, from the days of girlhood poems, through journals and essays, to pre-eminence among the women poets of her generation. But it is also a loving portrait of a very individual woman who nurtured a secure and happy domestic life whilst at the same time enjoying lasting friendships with Patmore, Meredith, Thompson and many other literary leaders of the period. Uncommon in the dustwrapper.
