Product Description

Always witty and flamboyant, poet, critic and biographer Dame Edith Sitwell was a champion of literary modernity. As a younger poet she challenged formal conventionalism with her own verses, such as the satirical romp Fa ade (1922). Later, her poetry sternly turned to class issues before she fell from fashion in the 1930s. After the Second World War, Sitwell enjoyed renewed public acclaim until her death in 1964. Her works include Clowns Houses (1918), Gold Coast Customs (1929), The Song of the Cold (1948), Gardeners and Astronomers (1953), and The Outcasts (1962).

Dame Edith Sitwell (1897 1964) poet, critic, and biographer, edited the lauded Wheels anthology of modern verse from 1916 to 1921 and became a Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire, in 1954.
