Über diesen Titel
This is an illustrated biography of the Sitwells. The book provides an iconography of Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell Sitwell which covers 50 years of British cultural history.Review:
Edith, Osbert, and Sacheverell Sitwell were English eccentrics of the 1920s and 1930s with wildly bohemian lifestyles, archly aristocratic mannerisms, and highly inflated artistic pretensions. Edith's poetry was the best known, but most of their works are now out of print. Their most outstanding creations, however, were themselves. Fashionably outrageous dress was one of their affectations, and image became a major preoccupation. Appropriately then, their lives are recorded here in a pictorial biography. In addition to the languidly posed Sitwells, there are photos of friends such as Evelyn Waugh and Cecil Beaton. The accompanying text is enlivened by accounts of their many petty feuds with those who failed to take them seriously, including Aldous Huxley and D. H. Lawrence.
