Short biography
Ivy Compton-Burnett came from the kind of large family she later wrote about. She said of herself, "I have had such an uneventful life that there is little information to give. I was educated with my brothers in the country as a child, and later went to Holloway College, and took a degree in Classics. I lived with my family when I was quite young but for most of my life have had my own flat in London. I see a good deal of a good many friends, not all of them writing people. And there is really no more to say." However, literary critics have had a great deal to say in praise of Compton-Burnett's works.
