As he appears in the text:

“Edmund Wilson, a renowned critic and essayist, spent his whole life in literary crowds. He was an early editor of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who he knew from Princeton, and lost his virginity to the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. Edmund’s 1944 review of Anaïs Nin’s Under a Glass Bell, a self-published effort with engravings from her husband, got her major early exposure and respect—and helped Edmund make his way onto Anaïs’s roster of lovers.”
