Clemence Dane, pseud. of Winifred Ashton, 1888–1965, English novelist and playwright. She was an artist, teacher, and actress before she turned to writing. Her first novel, A Regiment of Women (1917), is a compelling study of the hothouse emotional life in a girls' school. Legend (1919), concerns a young girl who devotes her life to her deranged father; Dane made it into a play called Bill of Divorcement (1921), which starred Katherine Cornell. Dane wrote many other novels and plays.
