November 1918, which brought the armistice, brought also the end of Night and Day - the last word were written on 21 november; it also brought Virginia a new friend, T.S. Elliot. He came to Hogarth House on 15 november bringing with him three or four poems. Mr. Elliot himself appeared to Virginia a polish, cultivated, elaborate young American, and almost too decorous; but very intelligent and very much a poet. He was very firm in his opinions, which were not Virginia's, for he thought Ezra Pound and Wyndham Lewis great men, and admired James Joyce immensely.
