BOOK DESCRIPTION

     

    Margaret Ann Griffiths (1947-2009)

          Margaret was born and raised in London and lived for some time in Bracknell then later moved to Poole. Rather than seek publication through traditional channels, she was content to share her work with fellow poets on various Internet forums. On the  rare occasions  she submitted work for publication, it  was typically to online venues. Also known by the Internet pseudonyms “Grasshopper” and “Maz”, she began posting her poetry on- line in 2001. During  the mid-2000s  she worked  from home, running a small Internet-based business, and edited the Poetry Worm, a monthly periodical distributed by email.
        In 2008, her “Opening a Jar of Dead  Sea Mud” won  Eratosphere’s annual Sonnet Bake-off, and was praised by Richard Wilbur. Later that year she was a Guest Poet on the Academy of American Poets website, where she was hailed as “one of the up-and-coming poets of our time”.
        She suffered for years from a stomach ailment which eventually proved fatal in July 2009. Almost immediately after her death was announced on Eratosphere, poets from all over the English-speaking world, from London, Derby, Scotland, Wales, Queensland, New South Wales, Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, Missouri, Maryland, California and Texas collected her work for this publication.
         First published by Arrowhead Press in the UK (January, 2011), this book is reprinted and distributed in the USA and Canada by Able Muse Press (April, 2011).

This is a very good book, I am an English teacher at a high school in California and I have this in my collection. I bought it from Amazon and I often let my students borrow it and they also tell me it's an enjoyable experience reading this. I was just reading Ms. Griffiths' Wikipedia page. It's so sad that she passed away at such a young age. Her Wikipedia page also contains a lot of useful information that I didn't know before. If anyone wants to check it out, I will post the link below.
