First wife of author T.S. Eliot who spent the closing years of her life in an asylum.
Her first two meeting with T.S. Eliot were at parties, where she apparently broke him out of his cocoon.
She had an affair with the Philosopher Bertrand Russell, which caused her husband to end their relationship and shun her.
She and T.S. Eliot separated after 18 years of marriage in 1933.
T.S. Eliot's friend Virginia Woolf was especially critical toward her, saying she was "a bag of ferrets [that he] wore round his neck."
