Lays and Legends is a 1886 collection of poetry by poet and author Edith Nesbit (1858 – 1924). Nesbit was a prolific and popular writer of children's literature, publishing more than 60 such books under the name E. Nesbit. She was also a political activist and co-founded the Fabian Society, which had a significant influence on the Labour Party and British politics in general. This vintage volume will appeal to poetry lovers of all ages and constitutes a must-have for the discerning collector. Other notable works by this author include: “The Prophet's Mantle” (1885), “Something Wrong” (1886), and “The Marden Mystery” (1896). Contents include: “Bridal Ballard”, “The Ghost”, “The Soul of the Ideal”, “The Modern Judas”, “A Death-Bed”, “At the Prison Gate”, “The Devil's Due”, “Love in June”, “The Garden”, “Prayer Under Gray Skies”, “A Great Industrial Centre”, “London's Voices”, “The Sick Journalist”, “Two Lullabies”, “Baby Song”, “Lullaby”, “An East-End Tragedy”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
