Description

Ursula Bethell (1874-1945) stands at the beginning of modern poetry in New Zealand. This rich collection of letters provides us with much evidence of her 'writerly' life and the origins of her poems. It also tells the moving personal story of an early life of travel and social work followed by happy years in Rise Cottage with her companion Effie Pollen; and of the devastating effect of the younger woman's sudden death, which left Bethell, as she wrote, 'a tree struck by lightning -- dead'.
