Ellen Glasgow


American writer who wrote and published her first books anonymously, surprising even her family when they found that she was the author of her first novel "The Descendants," 1897. Her work also included "They Stooped to Folly," 1928 and "In This Our Life," 1942, which won the Pulitzer Prize for literature. A product of the upper class southern society of post civil war period, she struggled for intellectual independence, and in school, studied political science.

Glasgow had several great romances including one with a married man in 1900 and an engagement 1917-1919, but never married. Her hearing began to fail when she was just a girl of 16. She had severe heart attacks in 1939 and 1940. She died on 21 November 1945, Richmond, VA.

Her autobiography was published nine years after her death.
