Sylvia Constance Ashton-Warner MBE (17 December 1908 – 28 April 1984) was a New Zealand writer, poet and educator. Ashton-Warner was born on 17 December 1908, in Stratford, New Zealand. She spent many years teaching Māori children, using stimulating and often pioneering techniques which she wrote about in her 1963 treatise Teacher and in the various volumes of her autobiography.

Hood chronicles Ashton-Warner's misery and empty relationships in exhausting but unilluminating detail. And while there are plenty of testimonies to the impact of her theatrically charismatic appeal, the genuinely positive side of her nature never emerges here.
