Stella Benson

Author Code: ESBE

Born: Jan. 6, 1892 - Lutwyche Hall, Shropshire, England

Died: Dec. 6, 1933 - Hongay, Tonkin, Vietnam

Benson's education was erratic because of her family's constant moves. She also suffered from ill health including bronchial ailments that left her deaf in her right ear. She attended school in Germany and Switzerland and became interested in poetry in her early teens. Mary Cholmondeley was her aunt and no doubt influenced Stella in her literary interests. Benson also became interested in women's suffrage and by the First World War was supporting poor women in London's East End for the Charity Organisation Society. Her first novel, I Pose, appeared in 1915 and included many of her experiences in the East End. In 1918, she traveled to the USA and worked for a time as a tutor at the University of California and later as an editorial reader at University Press. She then spent a year-and-a-half traveling in the Far East and working at a mission school. She met her future husband, John Anderson, while in China and after returning to England in 1921 they were married. Their honeymoon was spent traveling across America by car and her experiences resulted in The Little World in 1925. They returned to China and she remained in the Far East until her early death from pneumonia. Her works include This is the End (1917), Twenty (1918), Living Alone (1920), The Poor Man (1922), Pipers and a Dream (1924), Goodbye, Stranger (1926), The Man Who Missed the 'Bus (1928), Tobit Transplanted (1930), Hope Against Hope and Other Stories (1931) and Christmas Formula and Other Stories (1932).
