T S Eliot’s row with muse Emily Hale revealed | The Times

//About a month before he surprised even his closest friends by marrying his secretary, TS Eliot was alarmed to learn that his love letters to another woman had been given to a “Princeton librarian”. Worse still, he believed that this librarian was reading them.

Emily Hale, his muse and confidante, to whom he had professed his love in more than a thousand letters, had told him that she planned to give the correspondence to Princeton University, in New Jersey. She then apparently shared with Eliot a note from a delighted librarian, who spoke of gaining “a progressively clearer idea” of the “bulk and richness” of the correspondence.//
