Product Description

"In 1884 The Spectator hailed 'a new voice, which is likely to be heard far and wide among the English-speaking peoples': Michael Field. But the reviewer had no idea that Michael Field was the joint pseudonym of Katherine Bradley and Edith Cooper, two poets, playwrights and diarists who found freedom behind a male mask. They were aunt and niece, but also lovers, sharing a 'bone-of-bone, flesh-of-flesh life' for more than half a century. The uncensored story of the extraordinary women who were Michael Field, based on their unpublished diaries, is told here for the first time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
