    Eliot's memorial essay for Virginia Woolf was distant and reticent. He
    damned her work with faint praise, and did not even acknowledge her
    generosity towards him and others. I thought it most ungrateful and
    tight-assed of him. What a cold fish. Did you see where I mentioned that he
    said in Woolf's presence that no one should bother writing novels after
    Joyce? That was either hostile or obtuse. Diana

    And then there was Percy Wyndham Lewis' essay on her in his book
    MEN WITHOUT ART.
