A Sussex Alphabet
Eleanor Farjeon's charming appreciation of Sussex people and places is now available for everyone to enjoy, thanks to the Snake River Press!
First published in book form as a limited edition in 1939, Farjeon's book has been a sought-after rarity available only to collectors with deep pockets. This new facsimile edition makes her lovely poems accessible to a wider audience, complete with the original woodcut illustrations by Sheila M. Thompson.
Encompassing characters, folklore and the landscape of Sussex, Farjeon's verses create an enchanting blend of fantasy, realism and humour. They brilliantly capture the essence of this unique and exhilarating county. Gypsies, shepherds and literary giants all appear between these pages, along with towns, villages and the peculiarities of local dialect.
The new volume also includes an excerpt from Farjeon's poem All the Way to Alfriston, first published in 1918.
