Elinor Wylie

a.k.a. Elinor Morton (nee Hoyt), Elinor Hichborn, Elinor Benet

Author Code: AEHW

Born: Sep. 7, 1885 - Sommerville, New Jersey, USA

Died: Dec. 16, 1928 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at private elementary and secondary schools, Elinor grew up in Bryn Mawr and Washington D. C., the daughter of the Solicitor General appointed under President Roosevelt. In 1906, she married Philip Hichborn, but in 1910 left her husband and child for Horace Wylie, a Washington lawyer. They lived in England until the outbreak of war in 1914, then returned to Maine and eventually Washington. She met William Rose Benet, the brother of Stephen Vincent Benet, and he encouraged her writing. In 1920, she moved to New York City and in 1921 published her first book of poems, Nets to Catch the Wind, which was well received. In 1922, she became the literary editor of Vanity Fair magazine and in 1923 she divorced Wylie and married Benet. That year also saw her first novel, Jennifer Lorn, and a second book of poetry, Black Armour. In 1928, she returned to England and fell in love with another married man. Suffering from painful Bright's Disease, she fell and injured herself which aggravated the problem and she returned to New York. In December of that year she suffered a stroke and died at home, just 43 years of age. Other works included The Venetian Glass Nephew (1923), The Orphan Angel (1926), Mr. Hodge and Mr. Hazard (1928) and Angels and Earthly Creatures (1929 posthumous).
