Rebecca West

Dame Rebecca West, pseudonym of Cicily Isabel Andrewsnée Fairfield, (born Dec. 21, 1892, London, Eng.—died March 15, 1983, London), British journalist, novelist, and critic, who was perhaps best known for her reports on the Nürnberg trials of war criminals (1945–46).

West was the daughter of an army officer and was educated in Edinburgh after her father’s death in 1902. She later trained in London as an actress (taking her pseudonym from a role that she had played in Henrik Ibsen’s play Rosmersholm).
