‘She had a great natural dignity (I cannot imagine anyone who knew her trying to take a liberty with her), and was extremely intelligent. She was also exceedingly sensitive.’
-Edith Sitwell, poetess, 1965.
And of a previous meeting with MM:
'In repose her face was at moments strangely, prophetically tragic, like the face of a beautiful ghost- a little spring-ghost, an innocent fertility-daemon, the vegetation spirit that was Ophelia.’
