Walter de la Mare

Walter John de la Mare, OM, CH (April 25, 1873 – June 22, 1956) was an English poet, short story writer and novelist. He is probably best remembered for his works for children and for his poem The Listeners. He also wrote some subtle psychological horror stories, among them Seaton’s Aunt and Out of the Deep. His 1921 novel Memoirs of a Midget won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction, and his post-war Collected Stories for Children won the 1947 Carnegie Medal for British children’s books.
