Margaret Drabble's new memoir, The Pattern in the Carpet , has just been published.

Maybe Margaret would like to fraternize with Mr. Gerald who seems to have the same ideas.
In death, as in life, the funeral of Margaret Thatcher is causing divisions—or so the cliché goes.
Margaret—her loneliness—the sadness of her life, all haunted him.

fem. proper name (c.1300), from Old French Margaret (French Marguerite), from Late Latin Margarita, female name, literally "pearl," from Greek margarites (lithos) "pearl," of unknown origin, "probably adopted from some Oriental language" [OED]; cf. Sanskrit manjari "cluster of flowers," also said by Indian linguists to mean "pearl," cognate with manju "beautiful." Arabic marjan probably is from Greek, via Syraic marganitha. The word was widely perverted in Germanic languages by folk-etymology, cf. Old English meregrot, which has been altered to mean literally "sea-pebble."
