About the author (1990)

Meridel Le Sueur was born into a socialist family in 1900 and lived until 1996, spending most of her life in the Middle West. Her stunning and eloquent works include short stories, novels, popular histories, books for children, poetry, and memoir. Blacklisted during the McCarthy era in the 1950s, Le Sueur regained prominence during the rise of the feminist movement in the 1970s.

John F. Crawford (Ph.D., Columbia University), Associate Professor of English at the University of New Mexico - Valencia, has taught medieval, world, and other literature courses since 1965 at a number of institutions, including California Institute of Technology, Herbert Lehmann College of CUNY, and most recently at the University of New Mexico.
