Über diesen Titel


This book was conceived after reading Vera Brittain's Testament of Youth and Testament of Friendship. Winifred Holtby died very early after suffering from Brights Disease, renal failure aged only 37 in 1935. Into these years she crammed more that most people achieve in an average life. She was a kind, gentle and a very generous person, she had a strong belief in equality of sex, race and status and was a very strong feminist. She became a Director of the feminist newspaper Time and Tide. She wrote several novels the most famous being South Riding. During her life she also wrote many poems but they were not published, apart from 16 in a very small book called Frozen Earth and Other Poems, published in 1935. This book has captured the majority of her poetical works which point to periods in her life, WAAC during 1918, (Trains in France). She also went to South Africa in 1928, (Hills of the Transvaal). The problems she had with Harry Pierson her Boy friend that isn't a boy friend (The Dead Man, Epilogue to Romance, The Robber, The Grudging Ghost). The span of the poems range from examples of her early work, which should appeal to children and young adults. Namely Only and Sad Ascension day, to The Debt which describes Winifreds feeling of the debt she thought she owed to life, which gives the reader an idea of the caring person that she was. Through to one poignant poem which she wrote towards the end of her life, The Valley of Shadows. It is a poem of love and thankfulness and shows the debt she considered she owed to her close friend Vera Britttain.
