Notes:
Edith Nesbit is considered the first modern writer for children and the inventor of the children's adventure story publishing over 40 books, influencing writers including C.S. Lewis, P.L. Travers, J.K. Rowling, and Jacqueline Wilson. Playful, contradictory and creative, Nesbit hosted legendary parties and was described by George Bernard Shaw - one of her several lovers - as 'audaciously unconventional'. Nesbit railed against inequity, social injustice and state-sponsored oppression and incorporated her avant-garde ideas into her writing, influencing a generation of children - and aspect of her literary legacy examined here for the first time.
