Synopsis

Hope-in-the-Mist is the first book-length study of British author HOPE MIRRLEES, whom Virginia Woolf described as "her own heroine -- capricious, exacting, exquisite, very learned, and beautifully dressed." Raised in Scotland and Zululand, Mirrlees studied with the great classical scholar Jane Harrison and later lived with her in Paris and London. Mirrlees wrote one major poem, Paris (1920), the missing link between French avant-garde poetry and her friend T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land (1922) ; her novel Lud-in-the-Mist is an acknowledged classic of fantastical literature. With a preface by NEIL GAIMAN. Hope-in-the-Mist also includes " A Lexicon of Lud " prepared by Michael Swanwick (first published in shorter form in The New York Review of Science Fiction in July 2005).
