Vita Sackville-West

Vita Sackville-West (1892 – 1962) was an English novelist and poet, as well as being a renowned gardener who helped design and create the famous gardens at Sissinghurst in Kent. Her poetry often celebrates the English landscape and her long poem ‘The Land’ is the best-known example of this. She was also the model for the character Orlando in Virginia Woolf’s novel of that title.
