Margaret Scott Follow-Up

In today's "Age" the author and journalist Martin Flangan presents an obituary of Margaret Scott who died earlier this week. I can't find the piece on the web but one section amused me: 'She went to Cambridge University in 1953 and was in the same circle as Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. Indeed, Scott was present the night Plath met Hughes, Plath dramatically concluding their first embrace by biting Hughes' cheek until it bled. The girl who had accompanied Hughes to the party approached Scott, upset, and said: "Ted's just kissed that American girl", to which Scott replied: "Oh, don't worry, I'm sure it won't come to anything."'
