Read by Elizabeth Klett

(4.5 stars; 15 reviews)

The Farmer's Bride is a collection of 28 poems by British modernist writer Charlotte Mew. The original edition was published in 1916; this edition, published in 1921, contains 11 more poems. Mew's poetry is varied in style and content, but manifests a concern with gender issues throughout. Mew's life was marked by loneliness and depression, and she eventually committed suicide. Her work earned her the admiration of her peers, including Virginia Woolf, who characterized her as "very good and quite unlike anyone else." (Summary by Elizabeth Klett) (1 hr 6 min)

worth the listen

(4.5 stars)

For me Mew is very realistic,sometimes sad and depressing in the vivid pictures she presents. Listening is an advantage because it is excellently done. Thank you LibriVox.
