Edith Sitwell (1887 1964) had appeared on the literary horizon some fourteen years before this profile was read in the American press and by 1927 all concerned seemed to have decided that she had attained a respectable level of notoriety and was worthy of being labeled "famous":

"'Worse than death' is the fate of the famous artist. Fame is his fate in the eyes of one of England's 'famous poets'. It seems safe to call Miss Edith Sitwell 'famous' for people read a great deal about her, if they do not read much of her poetry."

"Miss Sitwell is described by THE SKETCH (London) as 'an author who dislikes simplicity, morris-dancing, a sense of humor, and every kind of sport except reviewer-baiting.'"

In 1954 she became a Dame Commander of the British Empire.
