Mary Webb

Mary Gladys Webb (1881–1927) was an English romantic novelist and poet of the early 20th century, whose work is set chiefly in the Shropshire countryside and among Shropshire characters and people whom she knew. Her novels, including Gone to Earth (1917) and Precious Bane (1924), are thought to have inspired the famous parody Cold Comfort Farm (1932) by Stella Gibbons.
