Guess This Guest
Do I have this right? Barbara Guest marries Stephen Guest, a former lover of H.D.’s*, whose father gets made a Labour lord, Baron Haden-Guest, a title now held by Christopher Guest. From “The Türler Losses” to Nigel Tufnel via a Moravian Modernist and the British House of Lords—how flarfy is that?
*“During the early days of Kenwin and H.D.’s later retreat to London, there was an affair changing into a tender relationship.” (Barbara Guest, Herself Defined: The Poet H.D. And Her World, p. 204.)
