Dr. Megan Quigley in London

English department professor Megan Quigley recently taught at this year's T.S. Eliot summer school in London. After a week long seminar on Eliot and fiction and a lecture on Henry James and Eliot, there was also time for some literary stalking with the students.  A few of Dr. Quigley's pictures follow.
The site of Eliot's old office at Faber & Faber.
"A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many," wrote Eliot in The Wasteland.
Burnt Norton, the estate in the Cotswolds inspiring the first of Eliot's Four Quartets.
