Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) is a writer due for reappraisal. Well-known in his own lifetime, with a wide circle of friends - Edward Thomas, Rupert Brooke, Katherine Mansfield and Thomas Hardy - he has been largely ignored by recent critics. Few know of his personal life, of his loving but difficult marriage, and the passionate and platonic affair with Naomi Royde-Smith which was so crucial to his poetry. This biography examines all aspects of de la Mare's life and art.
