Cornford's is a triolet - where the 1st line is repeated at 4 and 7 and the 2nd line is also the 8th. I think that is why it more visually and rhythmically appealing. Why she had to call out FTK, I don't know.
Was Cornford a well known poet of her time, or was Chesterton just a stalker of all things Darwin?
