English author, poet and gardener. She was famous for her exuberant aristocratic life, her marriage to Harold Nicolson, her relationships with Violet Trefusis and Virginia Woolf, and Sissinghurst Castle Garden, which she and Nicolson created. 
Her long narrative poem, The Land, won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927. She won it again, becoming the only writer to do so, in 1933 with her Collected Poems. The Edwardians (1930) and All Passion Spent (1931) are perhaps her best known novels today.
