Charlotte Mew (1869-1928) was born in London, and published her first collection of poetry, The Farmer’s Bride, in 1916. She gained the patronage of many well-known writers of the time, including Thomas Hardy, Virginia Woolf and Siegfried Sassoon. She committed suicide in 1928, never having gained the true poetic reputation she perhaps deserves.
