Mary Webb

$ 2.99

The interwar English novelist and poet Mary Webb is best known for her masterpiece ‘Precious Bane’ and for her lyrical style, conveying a rich and intense impression of her beloved Shropshire countryside home. Though in her lifetime her novels suffered neglect, a reappraisal of her work after her early death has drawn comparisons with the works of Thomas Hardy, sharing a love of nature and a sense of impending doom. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Webb’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
