Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mary Franeis Butts (13 December 1890 - 5 March 1937) was a British modernist writer. Her work found recognition in important literary magazines such as The Bookman and The Little Review, as well as from some of her fellow modernists, T. S. Eliot, H.D. and Bryher. After her death, her works fell into obscurity until they began to be republished in the 1980s. Butts was a student of the author and occultist Aleister Crowley, and as one of several students who worked with him on his Magick (Book 4) in 1912, she was given co-authorship credit. Butts was born in Poole, Dorset. Her father died in 1904, after which she had a boarding school education in St Andrews. She studied at Westfield College, but did not complete a degree there. In the first years of World War I she was living in London, England, undertaking social work for the London County Council in Hackney Wick, and in a lesbian relationship.
