Product Details

Praise

“Fascinating and controversial.” –The Washington Post

“Fascinating and hugely successful” –Sunday Times (London)

“A detailed, in-depth look at an extraordinary and complex marriage.” –The Houston Chronicle

“This work makes a definite contribution to our understanding of Eliot.” –Library Journal

“Superbly well-researched and extremely distressing. . . . A moving, powerful, and sympathetic biography of a talented, frail woman who deserves to rescued from the obscurity to which she was condemned.” –The Spectator (UK)

“If you want to know how ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ came to be penned, this homey little volume provides as good an interpretation of sexual dynamics as any. Highly recommended to all literature lovers.” –The Tampa Tribune

“Brilliant, deeply researched, utterly compelling. . . . [A] magnificent study.” –The Guardian (UK)

“Knowledgeable. . . Fair and subtle.” –The Daily Telegraph (UK)

“ A nuanced portrait of an independent spirit coming unhinged. . . . A chronicle of a fine mind–highly unstable but not necessarily insane.” –Publishers Weekly

“Unsettling. . . . Gives us some intriguing ways of looking at Eliot and his work.” –San Jose Mercury News

“[Seymour-Jones’s] portrait of Vivienne is fair, sympathetic, and well-supported, making her a far more real and vivid figure than in most studies of Eliot.” –Chicago Tribune

“Gripping . . . immaculately researched. . . . Sensational.” –The Observer (UK)
