Abstract:

Discussing personal matters, with many references to Dowson's health and mental health, his dining and theater engagements, his interest in the child actress Minnie Terry, and his relationship with Adelaide Foltinowicz ("I have broken my heart over her, but she remains, none the less, my soul interest in life," MA 1625.167), at one point comparing his life to Murger's Scénes de la Vie de Bohéme (MA 1625.1). Also discussing literary matters at length, offering praise, sharp criticisms, and some close readings of authors such as Emile Zola, Henry James, Honoré de Balzac, Ivan Turgenev, Robert Browning, Leo Tolstoy, Walter Pater, and Lionel Johnson, and referencing works by Oscar Wilde and his own involvement in the Rhymers' Club. With many letters related to his collaboration with Moore on four novels ("The Passion of Dr. Ludovicus" (unpublished), "Felix Martyr" (never completed), "A Comedy of Masks," (published 1893) and "Adrian Rome" (published 1899)), discussing plans and strategies for collaboration, as well as plot points and characters. Many letters also discussing Dowson's own work on poems, short stories, translations, and attempts at publication, with numerous references to his writers' block and difficulty writing, and with letter including a draft of his poem "Amor Umbratilis" (MA 1625.113).
