Your readers might also like to see some things from Elinor’s many European and UK admirers, including:
- one of the last things that Elinor wrote, a characteristically generous account for LSE Review of Books of the books that inspired her early academic endavours, at
- an Appreciation of Einor’s work, by Wyn Grant, that’s currently our most opular blog of the week, at
We’d love to get any comments or add-ons about Elinor’s work, and we’ll now repost all the great links above at the bottom of Wyn’s tribute.
