Who is m. e. w. sherwood?

Famous quotes containing the word sherwood:

    I was so sick and faint, so overcome at the brutality of this fiendish sport, that I hardly heard the shouts of “Bravo! bravo!” and the fanfaronade of trumpets.... I do not know which astonished me the most, the strikingly curious, brilliant coup d’oeil, the dexterity of the men, the intrepidity of the animals, the miserable unfair play, or the pleasure of the spectators.
    —M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)
