In Judith Aronson's Likenesses, Geoffrey Hill wrote: 'Anne Ridler was a lovely and gracious being, in mind and spirit as well as in physical appearance; and a chaste and splendid poet, influenced by Eliot and Charles Williams (their theology as, or more than, their poetics) but in no way merely derivative of them...At one time she acted as Eliot's secretary and, almost certainly at his suggestion, edited the Faber anthology The Little Book of Modern Verse, 1941.' Her husband, Vivian, became Printer to the University of Oxford. It is illustrated in Likenesses.

PROVENANCE: Judith Aronson.

REFERENCE: Judith Aronson, Likenesses, 2010.
