Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press) by Eleanor Farjeon
Book DescriptionEleanor Farjeon (1881-1965) was an English journalist, broadcaster and author of stories and poems. Her father encouraged her writing from the age of five; at eighteen she wrote the libretto for an operetta. Often written under a pseudonym, her poems appeared in The Herald (Tomfool), Punch, Time and Tide (Chimaera), The New Leader (Merry Andrew), Reynolds News (Tomfool), and a number of other periodicals. It could be argued that her topical work for The Herald, Reynolds News and New Leader was the most accomplished of any socialist poet of the 1920s and 30s. One of her most notable works, Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard (1921), was written as a gift for Victor Haslam, a soldier she was close to, but her widest known work is probably the hymn Morning has Broken (1931). During the 1950s she was awarded three major literary prizes: The Carnegie Medal of the Library Association, The Hans Anderson Award and the Regina Medal of the American Catholic Library Association.
