Biography: 

Born Florence Margaret Smith in Kingston upon Hull, England, Stevie Smith lived most of her life in North London. She was the author of nine books of poetry and three novels. Smith’s idiosyncratic style and wit, as well as her dark preoccupation with death, loneliness, and faith, continue to seduce her devoted fans. She never married and lived a fiercely independent life.
