Farjeon’s family home was a literary and artistic hub. Though she never received a formal education, Farjeon was tremendously influenced by the creative energy around her, an experience she recounted in her best-selling memoir, A Nursery in the Nineties (1935). In the book, Farjeon depicts herself as a dreamy child; her father’s death, when she was 22, meant she had to begin to write to earn a living.” (Poetry Foundation) (Inventory #: 107203)
