The missing link in academic and popular understanding of T.S. Eliot, Mary Trevelyan's account of her twenty year relationship with the seminal poet of Modernism has finally been published. Two failed marriage proposals punctuate the countless meetings and correspondence, intellectual and spiritual exchange and quotidian intimacy between Eliot and his closest female friend. The Pope of Russell Square is her memoir, based on the diary that she kept at the time. In his introduction, Dr Ian Smith describes the relationship that was never scandalous, but 'intense, complex and sexually charged'. The story of events itself as Trevelyan relates it has been greatly fleshed out by the research of Dr Smith, whose substantial footnotes accompany the text. With the single exception of Eliot's own letters (still largely unpublished), it is arguably the most substantial single documentary resource available for the study of Eliot's life and thought.
