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.
