Dame Rebecca West (1892-1983) is one of the most critically acclaimed English novelists, journalists, and literary critics of the twentieth century.
Uniquely wide-ranging in subject matter and breathtakingly intelligent in her ability to take on the oldest and knottiest problems of human relations, West was a thoroughly entertaining public intellectual.
“She was able to go wherever her curiosity took her,” explains Helen Atkinson, West’s great-niece. Watch this video to learn more about one of the most “extraordinarily adventurous” literary figures of the last century.
