Rosamond Lehmann

Standard Name: Lehmann, Rosamond
Birth Name: Rosamond Nina Lehmann
RL has received less critical attention than other women modernists, especially her closest literary colleagues Elizabeth Bowen and Virginia Woolf . However, after the reprinting of her work in the 1980s, her seven novels, her short stories, and one play became much better known. After the unexpected death of her daughter, RL ceased writing for about seven years. When she resumed she produced only one more novel, in addition to a memoir and spiritualist writings.
