Edith Sitwell

Edith Sitwell


  1. I have never read a word from her

    Knowing what you know about me (which is much)... where should I start (if I should, obviously)?

    1. Well, I did not read much more from her. Certainly she is not amongst my Top 1,000.
      I found this interview interesting, though. And as I had no good idea for a post . . . As for your question: Start at 3:34 and keep listening 23 seconds.

    2. I, for one, will endeavour to sample the 23 seconds when the Don's sweet Dulcinea is not sleeping (and doubtless dreaming of her Don) so gently by my side in a darkened room, save for weakest kiss of lamplight on her face, ah... for I have no headphones available and an old lady's voice in our bed might disturb Dulcinea (obviously).

    3. There is quite a similarity between Lady Margaret-Dulcinea (who exists) and Quixotes (http://darkakelarre.deviantart.com/art/Dulcinea-del-Toboso-202136119) who (obviously) does not.

    4. Well, there is certainly no similarity between Dulcinea del Toboso and Dame Edith whose answer to the question 'What are your personal hoobies and relaxations when you ere not working?' is: "Reading, listening to music, and silence."
      Question: Do you like the country better than the town?
      "Oh yes."
      Question: What particularly do you like about the country?
      "The quiet. And not being bothered by silly questions."
