> Eliot published his mother's play, Savonarola. As I recall his intro or forward was quite revealing. Try Howarth's Some figures....
> P. M.
My recollection is that there is nothing personal about Mom in the preface and is instead a dry discussion of the form of the historical verse play.
As for Howarth, there is a lot of information about his mother's contributions to the St. Louis community and some on her poetry. But it is outdated.
