( 1887–1964), English poet and critic; full name Edith Louisa Sitwell. Her early verse, with that of her brothers Osbert ( 1892–1969) and Sacheverell ( 1897–1988), marked a revolt against the prevailing Georgian style of the day. In 1923 she attracted attention with Façade, a group of poems in notated rhythm recited to music by William Walton.
