Edith Sitwell

a.k.a. Dame Edith Louisa Sitwell

Author Code: EELS

Born: Sep. 7, 1887 - Scarborough, England

Died: Dec. 9, 1964 - London, England

The daughter of Sir George Sitwell and sister to Osbert and Sacheverell, Edith was privately educated at the family estate at Renishaw. She began to write poetry shortly before the First World War and published her first volume, The Mother and Other Poems, in 1915. In 1916, she founded Wheels magazine with her brothers, one of the early Modernist publications, which ran until 1921. She never married, although she was said to have had an affair with the Russian artist Pavel Tchelitchew. For many years, she lived with her governess, Helen Rootham, until her death in 1938. Sitwell was eccentric in both life style and dress which accentuated her six-foot frame and drew criticism from many quarters. Nevertheless, she was an extremely gifted writer and literary innovator. In 1953, she was awarded an OBE and in 1955, she converted to Roman Catholicism. Her works include Clowns' Houses (1918), Poetry and Criticism (1925), Rustic Elegies (1927), Gold Coast Customs (1929), Alexander Pope (1930), The English Eccentrics (1933), Aspects of Modern Poetry (1934), Green Song and Other Poems (1944), Fanfare for Elizabeth (1946), The Queens and the Hive (1962) and her autobiography Taken Care Of (1965 Posthumous).
