We are delighted to welcome the wonderful Frances Dickey to the podcast to talk about the influences of Rossetti on T.S. Eliot. This episode focuses on both 'The Blessed Damozel' and 'The Wasteland' but Rossetti's influence on Eliot was multifaceted and, at times, a point of disgust and of uncanny personal similarity.
