The sixth volume of the personal correspondences of British literary giant T. S. Eliot

The letters of T. S. Eliot collected in this sixth volume were written during the years the Nobel Prize–winning poet, playwright, critic, and essayist called, “the happiest I can ever remember in my life.” Penned in large part during his tour of Depression Era America, these letters reflect Eliot’s resolve to end his torturous eighteen-year marriage to his wife, Vivienne, and offer fascinating descriptions of the author’s encounters with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edmund Wilson, Marianne Moore, and other notable figures.

John Haffenden is emeritus professor of English literature at the University of Sheffield, a senior research fellow of the Institute of English Studies, University of London, and a fellow of the British Academy. He lives in London.
