About Stella Benson
Stella Benson (1892–1933) was an English feminist, novelist, poet, and travel writer. Stella spent the winter of 1913–14 in the West Indies, which provided material for her first novel, I Pose. Living in London, she became involved in women’s suffrage, as had her older female relatives. During World War I, she supported the troops by gardening and by helping poor women in London’s East End at the Charity Organisation Society. These efforts inspired Benson to write the novels, This Is the End and Living Alone. She also published her first volume of poetry, Twenty, in 1918.
