History

Edith Louisa Sitwell (1887-1964), author, was born in England. She attracted literary attention in 1916 as the editor of 'Wheels,' a poetry anthology which was continued in 1917, 1918 and 1921. She was the author of several works of poetry and prose, as well as criticism, chief among them being 'The mother and other poems,' (1915), 'Elegy on dead fashion,' (1926), 'Selected poems,' (1936), 'Song of the cold,' (1948), 'A poet's notebook,' (1943), 'The pleasures of poetry,' (1930-32), and several others. In 1954 she was named Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, and subsequently received many honorary degrees from universities, including Oxford (1951).
