Short biography
Sylvia Townsend Warner was an only child who was educated at home, and she became an accomplished musician at a young age. At the outbreak of World War I, Sylvia went to work in a munitions factory in London, and began to write fiction. During her career, she produced seven novels, four volumes of poetry, a volume of essays, and eight volumes of short stories, as well as a biography of T.H. White (1967) and translated Proust's Contre Saint Beuve into English. In 1930, she bought a cottage in the village of Chaldon Herring in Dorset, where she lived with poet Valentine Ackland until her death.
