Marlow. Once home to T.S. Eliot. I feel I should have known that.
He lived there around the time he wrote The Wasteland ...
|Lets look up and smile|
Not QUITE enough of an ignoramus to think that Eliot wrote the lines about the Thames, which are oft misattributed to him. The lines were taken from Prothalamion, a poem written by the Tudor poet Edmund Spenser.
I DID know that Jerome K Jerome lived in Marlow and wrote much of Three Men in a Boat there.
I DIDN'T know that the Shelleys lived there. Mary finished Frankenstein and Percy wrote Revolt of Islam, in a house a couple of hundred yards from The Hand and Flowers.
I simply adored Marlow.
A beautiful town with such literary echoes.
Which writer could fail to be entranced?
