Elizabeth Bowen

Nationality: Irush

Elizabeth Bowen (1899-1973) was an eminent Anglo-Irish writer whose fiction was strongly influenced both by the aesthetic currents of Modernism and her own powerful sense of place. She is most renowned for her novels of the 1930s, which represent disoriented, disastrously innocent ingénues in the intransigent atmosphere of the upper-middle class drawing room. Her lasting achievement, however, is in her war novel and the short stories about the London Blitz.
