Description
The candid, affectionate, constrained and loving friendship of these two American poets is recorded in letters written over three decades, collected here for the first time in their entirety. It begins after the publication of their first books and ends only with Lowell's death. The letters include their discussions of books, articles and the literary scene; their agreements and disagreements about major writers of their day; their arguments about each other’s work; and their observations on political life. This major epistolary friendship reads like a novel.
