About this product
- DescriptionThis book is a fascinating in-depth study of the British novelist, poet, and illustrator Stevie Smith (1902-1971). It draws on extensive archival material to offer new insights into her work, challenges conventional readings of her as an eccentric, and offers new perspectives on British twentieth-century poetry and its reception.
