Hope Mirrlees / The T.S.Eliot State


On behalf of T.S. Eliot State it’s a pleasure to represent worldwide the rights of the author and poet Hope Mirrlees (Kent, 1887-Goring-on-Thames, 1978, UK).

Hope Mirrlees was a British translator, poet and nove­list. She is best known for her novel Lud-in-the-Mist, an early contribution to the high fantasy genre that has been praised by Neil Gaiman. It should be recognized as one of the founding works of the genre but has ra­rely been noticed and seldom reprinted. Mirrlees was a member of the Bloomsbury set and a friend of contem­porary intellectuals such as Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot and Bertrand Russell.
