<h2>Digitising</h2>
<h3>Stella Benson</h3>
<p>Stella Benson (1892-1933) was a traveller. beginning in a
pre-war london, her brief life saw several ocean crossings,
both atlantic and pacific, well as full-length runs of north
america and years spent deep in china, teaching, wandering, and
getting into trouble</p>
<p>she also wrote a lot</p>
<p>short-stories, poems, novels, and travellogues, her
influences can be boiled to three essential elements, each of
which plays well into the others: Ocean, Faerie,
Being-Lost</p>
<p>not so surprisingly, she was most recognised back then for
Tobit Transplanted, a novel which, in being tied to myth and an
existing structure, strayed the furthest from herself and
nearer to the things that everyone expected (i.e. “plot”)</p>
<p>though mostly now forgotten, modern readers have at least,
it seems, taken some interest in one of her earlier works,
Living Alone. because it has, like, witches and stuff</p>
