Ellen (Anderson Gholson) Glasgow

include novelist virginia

Novelist, born in Richmond, Virginia, USA. From a socially-prominent family, she was the archetypal Southern Belle, apart from her desire to be a successful novelist. Her early works reflected the irony of her situation, and include The Voice of the People (1900), and Virginia (1913). She obtained critical acclaim in her late middle age, with the publication of Barren Ground (1925). Other works include They Stooped to Folly (1929), Vein of Iron (1935), and In This Our Life (1941, Pulitzer).
