Publisher: Read & Co. Books
Many Voices is a 1922 collection of poetry by poet and author Edith Nesbit (1858 – 1924). Nesbit was a prolific and popular writer of children's literature, publishing more than 60 such books under the name E. Nesbit. She was also a political activist and co-founded the Fabian Society, which had a significant influence on the Labour Party and British politics in general. This vintage volume will appeal to poetry lovers of all ages and constitutes a must-have for the discerning collector. Contents include: “The Return”, “For Dolly, Who Does not Learn her Lessons”, “Questions”, “The Daisies”, “The Touchstone”, “The December Rose”, “The Fire”, “The Song”, “The Gift of Life”, “A Parting”, “incompatibilities”, “The Stolen God, Lazarus to Dives”, etc. Other notable works by this author include: “The Prophet's Mantle” (1885), “Something Wrong” (1886), and “The Marden Mystery” (1896). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
