"Poet, teacher, and critic, Yvor Winters was a man of letters in more ways then one. This selection of his personal correspondence spans half a century of literary history and a lifetime of intellectual development and growth. As a record of a serious artist and thinker's grappling with important issues and, sometimes, with his notable friends, the letters offer a new and often unexpected insight into the creative mind at work." "Rich with Winters's personal impressions and honest appraisals and addressed to a panoply of poets, writers, and editors, including Marianne Moore, Allen Tate, Lincoln Kirstein, Louise Bogan, and Katherine Anne Porter among others, The Selected Letters of Yvor Winters offers that unique glimpse of a writer of stature in private conversation with his peers."--Jacket
