The Dark Lady

O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark….
— T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets

From a list of people who died during 1991:

September 27 Oona Chaplin, daughter of Eugene O’Neill/wife of Charles, dies at 66

“Is that the name?  Well!  Well!  Well!  That’s a fine old name in the west here.”

“It is so, indeed,” said the landlady. “For they were kings and queens in Connaught before the Saxon came.  And herself, sir, has the face of a queen, they tell me.”

“They’re right”….

— John Collier, “The Lady on the Grey,” Fancies and Goodnights, Bantam paperback, first printing, March 1953, page 131
