Bertrand Russell – Face to Face Interview with Dame Edith Sitwell, 1959. From the BBC archives.
Dame Edith Sitwell (7 September 1887 – 9 December 1964) was an English socialite and poet who first gained fame for her stylistic artifices but who emerged during World War II as a poet of emotional depth and profoundly human concerns. She was equally famed for her formidable personality, Elizabethan dress, and eccentric opinions.
