Rebecca West

Portrait by [[Madame Yevonde]] Dame Cicily Isabel Fairfield DBE (21 December 1892 – 15 March 1983), known as Rebecca West, or Dame Rebecca West, was a British author, journalist, literary critic and travel writer. An author who wrote in many genres, West reviewed books for ''The Times'', the ''New York Herald Tribune'', the ''Sunday Telegraph'', and ''The New Republic'', and she was a correspondent for ''The Bookman''. Her major works include ''Black Lamb and Grey Falcon'' (1941), on the history and culture of Yugoslavia; ''A Train of Powder'' (1955), her coverage of the Nuremberg trials, published originally in ''The New Yorker''; ''The Meaning of Treason'' (1949), later ''The New Meaning of Treason'' (1964), a study of the trial of the British fascist William Joyce and others; ''The Return of the Soldier'' (1918), a modernist World War I novel; and the "Aubrey trilogy" of autobiographical novels, ''The Fountain Overflows'' (1956), ''This Real Night'' (published posthumously in 1984), and ''Cousin Rosamund'' (1985). ''Time'' called her "indisputably the world's number one woman writer" in 1947. She was made CBE in 1949, and DBE in 1959, in each case, the citation reads: "writer and literary critic". She took the pseudonym "Rebecca West" from the rebellious young heroine in ''Rosmersholm'' by Henrik Ibsen. She was a recipient of the Benson Medal. Provided by Wikipedia
