(who began publishing under her birth name of Ursula Roberts) was a poet and novelist of the earlier twentieth century, who also published a suffrage pamphlet, an admiring biography of her Christian-socialist husband, and a striking verse-novel. Remarkably, her highly imagistic and symbolic prose fiction (set largely in a timeless, primitive countryside) is obscure and occasionally turgid, while her novel in poetry (set largely in London), while still imagistic and symbolic, is crystal-clear and full of the observed detail of daily life. Poems published late in her life represent at least a fair degree of continuity with earlier work, and may even have been written well before they appeared.
She is not to be confused with a spiritualist medium named Ursula Roberts who began publishing shortly before 75 Years of Moreton Hall, a booklet of girls' school history, in 1998.ceased to publish, nor with someone else of the same name who produced
