Rebecca West

(1892-1983)

American Author
Brilliance of intellect and lucidity of style

Cicily Isabel Andrews, born Fairfield, and alias Rebecca West, was first a great journalist.

But she was also a feminist (like, in some ways, Willa Cather), a book reviewer and literary critic, a novelist, a biographer, a social satirist, and a travel writer

Her childhood in London was marked with poverty, the death of her father, and tuberculosis (like Thoreau,Willa Cather, Anton Chekhov, or D.H. Lawrence)

Cicily was recognized early as a new literary personality.

Charlie Chaplin and the newspaper magnate Max Beaverbrook were among West's many lovers. In 1930 she married a banker, Henry Maxwell Andrews. Their marriage was happy.


Henry James (1916), a critical study, was West's first book.

The Return of the Soldier (1916) was her first novel, and a best-seller.

An Elegy (1930), is the narrative of a meeting with D.H. Lawrence in Florence.

Other works include:

Harriet Hume (1929) a fantasy, The Thinking Reed(1936) which depicts the manners of the very rich, The Fountain Overflows (1956) the story of an Edwardian family, Black Lamb And Grey Falcon (1942), A Train Of Powder (1955), and The Birds Fall Down (1966) a political and marital intrigue viewed through the eyes of a young girl.
