Leslie Tells
Of Swift's
Love Life'
"Swift was a firm believer in
platonic love, which he forced on
Stella and Vanessa until they both
died from it," Sir Shane Leslie
told an appreciative audience yes-
terday afternoon at the Architec-
ture Auditorium.
Leslie, guest of the English de-
partment, lectured on "Swift,
Stella and Vanessa." He traced
the life of Jonathan', Swift, and
told of Stella and Vanessa, the two
women in Swift's life.
* Si *
ACCORDING TO Leslie, Swift
was "not the marrying kind," and
soy he prevented both Stella and
Vanessa from becoming the mar-
rying kind also. Swift wanted to
know both women "intellectually
and platonically" Leslie remarked.
Both Stella and Vanessa in-
fluenced Swift's writing accord-
ing to the lecturer. Swift sent
the manuscript of "Gulliver's
Travels" to Stella for approval
before it was published. The
character of the nurse in this
book is said to have been pat-
terned after Stella.
Leslie told of his own search for
Swift's manuscript of "Temple
Memories." He finally found the
manuscript in an old English
housekeeper's room. This is a
good place to look for anything
Leslie said, as they usually have
"an accumulation of old rubbish."
given to the British Museum, but
it "naturally came over to Amer-
ica," Leslie said, although it is
now back in England.
Leslie surprised the audience
by appearing in a dignified Eng-
lish morning coat instead of the
expected Irish saffron kilt. Even
without his customary colorful
attire, however, the noted Irish-
man succeeded in charming his
audience as he told the adven-
tures of Swift and of himself.
"I don't know which he hated
most, the English or the Irish,"
said Leslie of Swift.
Asked his impression of the
University, Leslie replied, "I am
absolutely amazed and delighted
at this magnificent University. It
has an academic charm that I
wish we had in Ireland."
