About Laura Riding Jackson (1901 - 1991)
Laura Riding Jackson was a highly regarded modernist poet, prose writer, and thinker.  Much of her career was spent exploring the truth potential in language.  She lived most of her life in Wabasso after having traveled the world with many literary greats.  She came to Florida with her husband Schuyler to live a simple life and to further her work of understanding the link of the human mind and language as relates to the idea of truth.
