Short biography
Marjorie Boulton received a doctorate in literary studies from Oxford University. She was the principal of a teacher' college for 24 years before becoming a full-time professional writer. Her series of introductory texts on literary studies -- including The Anatomy of Poetry (1953), The Anatomy of Prose (1954), The Anatomy of Drama (1960) -- has been widely used. In 1949, she learned Esperanto and started writing poetry and short stories in this language. Her first collection of Esperanto poems, Kontralte (In Contralto), was published in 1955. Her English-language biography Zamenhof, Creator of Esperanto, appeared in 1960; the Esperanto editon was published in 1962. Her short story collections include Dek du piedetoj (Twelve Little Feet, 1964). In 1983, she published a study of the work of Hungarian author Julio Baghy called Poeto Fajrakora. She is a member of the Esperanto Academy.
