Elizabeth Dorothea Cole Bowen, CBE (b. June 7, 1899, Dublin - d. February 22, 1973, London).
"It may be said with truth that the panorama of everyday English life unfolds itself to the best advantage not in the histories but in the novels of our people. The great characters of fiction are often nearer our hearts and are more deeply impressed on our memories than the men and women of histry. Certianly the English novel is one of the outstanding glories of world literature, and its fine flowering is essentially a very special contribution of our native genius. In this book Miss Elizabeth Bowen, herself a distinguished novelist, gives a valuable and vivid survey of the principal English novelists and their work from John Lyly to Virginia Woolf." - from the jacket.
