Description

An epistolary exchange that highlights two singular intellects, their disparate approaches to literature and their mutual admiration.

This volume features selections from the New Directions founder's correspondence with Guy Davenport, the polymath artist and author of The Geography of the Imagination. More than simply detailing an author/publisher relationship, these letters depict two fine minds educating and supporting each other in the service of literature.
