    Meynell, Alice

    Alice Meynell (1847 – 1922) was a British essayist and poet who was much admired by Tennyson. She and her sister, a painter, spent their bohemian childhood partly in Italy. Meynell published her first book of poems, Preludes, in 1875, under her maiden name Thompson. She worked for women’s suffrage and her poems reflect her feminist concerns as well as her response to the events of World War I.
