Frank Sidgwick

Frank Sidgwick

Frank Sidgwick (1879-1939)

Frank Sidgwick was a publisher, writer, scholar and literary editor best remembered for his anthologies of poems and ballads. His works include The Ballad (1914) and Popular Ballads of the Olden Time (1903-1912). He was particularly interested in The Bitter Withy and gathered many versions for a comparative paper which was published in the Journal of the Folk-lore Society in June 1908. He formed an acquaintance with Ella Mary Leather in this way, Ella having sent him variants she had found in Herefordshire.
