Victoria of England
Edith Sitwell (1887-1964) was born into an aristocratic family and, along with her brothers, Osbert and Sacheverell, had a significant impact on the artistic life of the 20s. She encountered the work of the French symbolists, Rimbaud in particular, early in her writing life and became a champion of the modernist movement, editing six editions of the controversial magazine Wheels. She remained a crusading force against philistinism and conservatism throughout her life and her legacy lies as much in her unstinting support of other artists as it does in her own poetry.
Every day, every evening, there was some fresh experience, some new joy for the little Princess who had once worn a darned frock, and who now was the Queen of England. Queen Victoria is remembered as an iconic symbol of Britain’s ‘Golden Years’; an age of prosperity, scientific advancements, and relative peace. When she was born to the Duke of Kent, fourth son of King George III, however, she was unlikely to imagine that circumstances would lead to her inheriting a position of such power and impact. Edith Sitwell’s influential biography begins with the death of the Duke of Kent in 1820 when Victoria was less than a year old. It spans the succession crisis that occurred after the death of Princess Charlotte of Wales, and the string of childless deaths that led to Victoria’s unlikely ascension to the throne. Making heavy use of Victoria’s personal letters and journals, Sitwell breathes life into the Queen’s relationships with her family and court. Acting both as a rich portrait of Victoria’s reign and a social documentation of Victoria’s Britain, Victoria of England encompasses the world of one of our most remembered Monarchs with insight and precision.
