Walter de la Mare - Author

About the Author

Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was born in Charlton, Kent. In 1890, aged sixteen, he began work in the statistics department of the London office of Anglo-American Oil. In 1907 he published his first collection of poems under the pseudonym Walter Ramal, but he soon established a wide popular reputation in his own name as a leading poet of the Georgian period with volumes like The Listeners (1912), Motley (1918) and The Veil (1921). He also wrote poetry and short stories for younger readers; Peacock Pie (1913), a collection of poems for children, is now considered a twentieth-century classic.

Told Again - Old Tales Told Again - Illustrated by A. H. Watson

Author: Walter de la Mare Format: eBook Release Date: 24/01/2018

Told Again; Old Tales Told Again was compiled by Walter de la Mare, and contains illustrations by A. H. Watson. It is a wonderful collection of traditional fairy tales, including favourites such as 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Bluebeard', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Rumpelstiltskin' and 'Snow-White.' Walter de la Mare (1873 - 1956) was an English poet, short story writer and novelist, best remembered for his works for children, and his poem 'The Listeners.' He composed many short-story collections, though folkloric tales were a particular fascination. This edition of Old Tales Told Again is accompanied by the drawings of Alice Helena Watson (1896 - 1984); a graceful and unique illustrator. Watson largely focused on children's and nursery tales, but also provided illustrations for dust-jackets, magazines, and other one-off pieces. Her sinuous black-and white illustrations further refine and enhance the carefully collated stories of De La Mare - making this a book to delight both young and old alike. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children's stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.

Out of the Deep And Other Supernatural Tales

Out of the Deep And Other Supernatural Tales

Author: Walter de la Mare Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/04/2017

A visitor from an alternate world is glimpsed in a snowy churchyard; a box contains a creature that resembles (but not quite closely enough) a human being; two schoolboys spend a holiday with a sinister aunt. In many of these stories, ordinary settings in the English countryside possess a hallucinatory quality - a sense of meaning beyond our grasp, and events running out of kilter with reality. Like all the best ghost stories, these haunting tales offer an enduring sense of mystery with an explanation that remains tantalisingly out of reach. They grow richer with each reading - lingering in the mind and becoming ever more sinister, and more profound.
