    Edith Sitwell was born in Yorkshire, England in Her collections of poetry include Green Song and Other Poems (), Variations on a Theme (), Façade (), The Wooden Pegasus (), and The Mother and Other Poems ().Sitwell’s early work was often experimental, creating melody, using striking conceits, new rhythms, and confusing private allusions.

Readers of Osbert’s autobiography, Left Hand, Right Hand!, will remember how the author inflated the character of his father, Sir George, the fourth baronet, into a comic monster of inhumanity, whom he nicknamed. The Sacheverell Sitwell Collection, , contains an extensive sampling of his written works, including notebooks in which Sitwell wrote initial drafts for many of his works. Also present are letters written to Sitwell, business papers regarding his publications and the running of the Weston estate, and a small number of personal papers.
