Overview

May Kendall (Born Emma Goldworth Kendall) (1861 - 1943) was an English poet, novelist, and satirist. She is best known as the co-author of the novel That Very Mab and the poetry collections Dreams to Sell and Songs from Dreamland.
Possibly her most anthologized poem, "Lay of the Trilobite," is a satire of the popular English response to Darwin's evolutionary theory.
Much of her literary output focuses on evolution and other scientific discoveries, the New Woman, and satirical portraits of British society and its hypocrisy.
In 1895 Kendall partially gave up professional writing in order to more fully devote her life to social reform. She worked predominantly with the Rowntree Family in York.
Kendall died in poverty at a public assistance institution in York. The death certificate stated that she was suffering from dementia. Her unmarked grave is in York Cemetery.
