Letter Writing Among Poets: From William Wordsworth to Elizabeth Bishop edited by Jonathan Ellis

Fifteen enlightening chapters by leading international biographers, critics and poets examine letter writing among poets in the last two hundred years. They range from Coleridge, Wordsworth, Keats and Shelley in the nineteenth-century to Eliot, Yeats, Bishop and Larkin in the twentieth. Letter Writing Among Poets demonstrates that real letters still have an allure that virtual post struggles to replicate.
