    The wife of the 'relentlessly successful' Archbishop Edward White Benson and mother to six remarkable children, including the archaeologist Margaret Benson, poet AC Benson and novelist EF Benson, Mary 'Ben' Benson (1841-1918) was herself considered 'the cleverest woman in Europe' by none other than William Gladstone. Rodney Bolt's much-acclaimed biography paints a vivid portrait of Ben and embraces her whole 'unpermissably gifted' family.
