Traxectoria[editar | editar a fonte]

Retrato de Vernon Lee realizado por John Singer Sargent.

Viviu na época vitoriana, feito que se manifesta na súa escrita. O seu vínculo con Italia foi fondo, pois viviu en Florencia a maior parte da súa vida e escribiu ensaios de peso sobre a cultura renacentista. Foi amiga de importante figuras da cultura do momento, tales que Robert Browning, Walter Pater, George Bernard Shaw ou Edith Wharton.
