For Virginia Woolf and Thomas Hardy, Charlotte Mew (1869- 1928) was the finest woman poet of the era. Drawing on a wealth of previously unseen materials – including letters, photographs, household and medical records, diaries and the testimonies of friends – award winning poet Julia Copus animates the myriad factors that went into firing Mew’s extraordinary imagination, and in so doing confirms the relevance and power that her work has today.
