Sylvia Townsend Warner in Maiden Newton - 30 June, 1970
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 346:
I spent the morning sorting her poems. Afterwards, I went downstairs feeling very cold and translated. And then she gave me an assurance of my death, as I listened to the last variation of op. 109: the gathering ripples coldly pusling round me, like wading into the sea, swelling, rising, encompassing, irresistable; and the theme emerging, bare & naked, standing on the yonder shore.
