Edward Powys Mathers

  • About
  • E. Powys Mathers (1892–1939) is most often remembered, other than as the author of Black Marigolds, for his version of the Thousand Nights and One Night and as his alter ego, ‘Torquemada’ of the Observer – a name to conjure with in the history of the cryptic crossword. He published several other collections of translations from oriental verse.
