Obituary(s)

 

It is a novelist’s oddity
that the obituary of the historian
Eric Hobsbawm

published in The Guardian
newspaper of England
was written by Dorothy Wedderburn.

He died on October 1st.
She, Dorothy, died also
a little less than two weeks

before him on September 20th.
Her obituary in the same newspaper
was written by him.
