He had already written poems and fragments with a major work in mind, and he probably gave further thought to this at weekends with Vivienne, sometimes by the sea, particularly at Bosham, where boating was an attraction; and again during the summer holiday he spent in France, without her, part of it with Pound in the Dordogne. By this time he knew a number of social celebrities, including the Sitwells . As a result of meeting Katherine Mansfield at Lady Ottoline Morrell's, he had become acquainted with John Middleton Murry, editor of The Athenaeum, a literary weekly which he had revived .
During May 1918 the Eliots lived at Marlow, in a cottage lent them by Russell (who informed his lady mistress that he had made love to Vivienne the previous autumn, and found the experience loathsome). Vivienne was an invalid, and Eliot, still employed at his London bank during the week, was nervously exhausted. Brigit Patmore thought him snappy and lacking in humility, though capable of winning cordiality; Vivienne, it seemed, 'shimmered with intelligence'. She recalled how the Eliots danced on Sunday afternoons at a hall in Queensway, but found they now took everything with 'a terrible seriousness'.
Like Lawrence, he regarded over-industrialization as a potent factor in the decay of virtues he associated with agricultural communities; it would lead to instability, uprootedness, and lack of patriotism. In an artificial society people resorted to the daydreams of films and popular fiction; in a properly organized world they would have something better to do than to read novels, which had become the opium of the day. He thought there would always be a need for poetry, and that a revival in drama was possible.
