Lewis and Aykroyd fell in love instantly, recognising in each other similar temperaments and artistic interests. Their affair, which lasted until Lewis's mysterious death on the Arakan Front in March 1944, inspired some of the finest of his wartime poems as well as an extraordinary cache of letters published here for the first time. The letters throw a fresh light on Lewis's passionate and troubled nature and the background to his literary output at a time when he was at the height of his creative powers." ;
