Edith Nesbit and William Shakespeare

Edith Nesbit (1858 – 1924) was a British novelist, poet and magazine editor. Often called the "Queen of Children's literature", Nesbit published over 50 books for children, establishing a new genre.

Generally, Nesbit's characters are real children in realistic environments, embarking on fantasy adventures with magical creatures, influencing the work of later writers like CS Lewis and JK Rowling.
