Abstract:

Collection contains letters from Isherwood to Lehmann, carbon copies of replies from Lehmann, and photocopies of several letters, without originals, which came with the collection. Letters discuss Isherwood's life in Europe and America, the political situation in Berlin and London prior to and during World War II, and his interest in Indian Vedanta philosophy.

The letters also discuss the writing, publishing, critical reception, and theatrical adaptations of Isherwood's works, critical analysis of many of Lehmann's works, and commentary on the lives and works of many important literary figures of the time, including W. H. Auden, E. M. Forster, William Plomer, Stephen Spender, Edward Upward, Berthold Viertel, Virginia Woolf and many others. Also mentioned are Isherwood's companion, the artist Don Bachardy, and two literary journals founded by Lehmann, New Writing and the London Magazine. Also included is one letter from Richard Isherwood, Christopher's brother, to Lehmann, several letters to Lehmann from third parties concerning Isherwood, and a typescript of Isherwood's poem "On His Queerness."
