Penelope Fitzgerald was one of the most elegant and distinctive voices in British fiction. Three of her novels, The Bookshop, The Beginning of Spring and The Gate of Angels have been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. She won the Prize in 1979 for Offshore. Her last novel, The Blue Flower, was the most admired novel of 1995, chosen no fewer than nineteen times in the press as the `Book of the Year'. It won America's National Book Critics' Circle Award. She died in April 2000, at the age of eighty-three.From Library Journal:
First published in London in 1984, this biography unveils the life, personality, and art of the almost-forgotten English poet Charlotte Mew (1869-1928), whose poetry impressed such contemporaries as Hardy, Woolf, Sitwell, and Pound. Fitzgerald brings Mew to life through accounts of the poet's interactions with her colleagues. By interrelating Mew's work and life experiences, Fitzgerald comments, and allows Mew to comment, on an inner struggle intensified by insanity, poverty, sexual frustration, and the death of loved onesa struggle that ends with suicide. This work is not only a study of Mew, the individual and poet, but of the literary climate of the time. A selection of Mew's poems is included.Jeris Cassel, Rutgers Univ. Lib., New Brunswick, N.J.
