Editorial Reviews

Review

"Her letters are a vital expression of that personality--witty, prickly, affectionate, kind, snobbish yet vulnerable, imaginative and often over-the-top." -- LITERARY REVIEW

From the Publisher

Edith Sitwell (1887-1964) was, for four decades, the most prominent and celebrated woman poet in Britain. She counted among her many admirers Marianne Moore, Stephen Spender, and W.B. Yeats; after her death, she was eulogized by THE NEW YORK TIMES as "one of the great poets of the 20th century." This exhilarating collection includes unpublished letters to a remarkable array of notables, including Bertrand Russell, Gertrude Stein, Cecil Beaton, Kingsley Amis, T.S. Eliot, and Virginia Woolf. The cutting wit and stunning clarity of Sitwell's prose renders "Selected Letters" an important contribution to the canon of her literary works.
