Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was an English author, poet, socialist, and co-founder of the Fabian Society.

"I should like to try and tell you a little about the Fabian Society—it's aim is to improve the social system—or rather to spread its news as to the possible improvements of the social system. There are about thirty members—some of whom are working men. We meet once a fortnight—and then someone reads a paper and we all talk about it. We are now going to issue a pamphlet. I am on the Pamphlet Committee. Now can you fancy me on a committee? I really surprise myself sometimes."—Edith Nesbit, 19 August 1884 Letter to Ada Breakell
