Summary
"By the time she was committed to an asylum in 1938, five years after T.S. Eliot deserted her, Vivienne Eliot was a lonely, distraught figure. Shunned by literary London, she was the "neurotic" wife whom Eliot had left behind. In The Family Reunion, he described a wife who was a "restless shivering painted shadow," and so she had become: a phantomlike shape on the fringe of Eliot's life, written out of his biography and literary history." "This portrait of Vivienne Eliot, first wife of poet T.S. Eliot, gives a voice to the woman who, for seventeen years, had shared a unique literary partnership with Eliot but who was scapegoated for the failure of the marriage and all but obliterated from historical record."--Jacket
