Product Description
 
The first biographical account of T. S. Eliot's first wife Vivien to be presented alongside her original writings.The first biographical account of T. S. Eliot's first wife Vivien to be presented alongside her original writings.
The Fall of a Sparrow is a groundbreaking new biography of Vivien Eliot, comprising two sections: her Life and her Papers. Based on a rich repository of primary evidence, much only recently uncovered, it corrects the accidental inaccuracies and deliberate distortions that have circulated around one of Bloomsbury's most gossiped-about, enigmatic couples, while unveiling fascinating new discoveries that give a more balanced understanding of both partners. For the first time, too, immaculate texts of Vivien's own writing are presented, carefully distinguished from Eliot's input, which demonstrate a fresh and wry talent all of her own.
