Veronica Forrest-Thomson, 14 Searle Street

Veronica Forrest-Thomson (2)

Veronica Forrest-Thomson was living at 14 Searle Street (Cambridge CB4 9DB) in 1974. Probably it was here where she wrote ‘Cordelia: or “A poem should not mean, but be”‘; probably, when

Spring surprised us, running through the market square
And we stopped in Prynne’s rooms in a shower of pain
And went on in sunlight into the University Library

her route to the market square had been via Carlyle Road, Chesterton Road, Bridge Street and Sidney Street, which would have taken her past the old rooms of Empson and Wittgenstein.
