- A paper for the T. S. Eliot and Emily Hale panel (385 - T. S. Eliot and Emily Hale) that looks at Eliot's newly unsealed correspondence with Emily Hale, particularly during the year 1937, alongside the character of Mary in Eliot's 1939 play, The Family Reunion. The paper argues for the centrality of Mary to Eliot's ambitions for a new kind of drama and discusses why Eliot can't allow her to continue the trajectory he places her on at the end of the first act.
