This collection of poetry is a historiographical work based on the lives of Katharine Bradley and Edith Cooper, an aunt and niece who produced work together under the pen name Michael Field in the late 20th century. Katharine and Edith lived their lives mainly in the south of England, but also made extensive travels abroad in search of artistic inspiration, including multiple trips to France and Italy.
Their romantic relationship has been widely documented both by scholars and the authors themselves, who kept a joint journal together and produced more than 40 works during their lifetimes. Many of these works are closet dramas but they also published poetry, much of which this collection is based on.
Contains 21 poems.
