About the Author

In 1948 English poet Mary Pargeter was born at home in the Hampshire hamlet of Newton Valence. Her idyllic country childhood was marred when, in 1956, the family moved to Surrey and the child unhappily experienced a suburban life, with pavements lit by street lamps. In her poetry she reflects on that childhood, heartbreak, early loves, disappointments and the entry into adulthood and at last understanding. She neither married nor had children. A child of the 60s, Mary flourished in art school and became a successful graphic designer.


Surrey Life magazine, May 2015, TV presenter Juliette Foster: "She writes with the lightness of petals falling on water yet underscoring the mildness is an honesty that surprises with its intensity". Professor Carol Rumens, Guardian Books Online 'Poem of the Week' blog: "I have felt engaged with the work, and responsive to its emotional charge." ~ Jay Ramsay, Caduceus Journal: "She lets detail speak, often exquisitely, through things as they are; there is no attempt to escape through fantasy." ~ Female First online magazine, Lucy Walton interview with Mary Pargeter. ~ Angus Morris (RAF retd): "My human experience has been enriched by reading these poems. It is up to you if you are open to enrich yours..." ~ Full reviews/interviews are on:
