Vita Sackville-West, Collection



The Hon Victoria Mary Sackville-West, Lady Nicolson, CH (9 March 1892 - 2 June 1962), best known as Vita Sackville-West, was an English author, poet and gardener. She won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927 and 1933. She was known for her exuberant aristocratic life, her passionate affair with the novelist Virginia Woolf, and Sissinghurst Castle Garden, which she and her husband, Sir Harold Nicolson, created at their estate. The Edwardians (1930) and All Passion Spent (1931) are perhaps her best known novels today. Sackville-West's science-fantasy Grand Canyon (1942) is a "cautionary tale" (as she termed it) about a Nazi invasion of an unprepared United States. The book takes an unsuspected twist, however, in that makes it something more than a typical invasion yarn. In this book: Andrew Marvell, 1939 Grand Canyon, 1942 Country Notes in Wartime, 1940 Country Notes, 1940 The Tale Of Mr. Peter Brown - Chelsea Justice, 1919 Poems of West & East, 1917 The Land, 1926
