Abstract:

"Robert Frost and Edward Thomas met in a restaurant in London in 1913. Over the next four years the two men - Frost, an unknown poet who had sold his farm in New Hampshire in order to take his family to England for one last gamble on poetry, and Thomas, a prolific but often depressed literary journalist - formed the most important friendship between poets since that of Wordsworth and Coleridge. Their friendship ended only with Thomas's death at the battle of Arras in April, 1917." "This book presents, for the first time, the full record of what the poets wrote to, for, and about one another - their letters, poems, and Thomas's reviews of Frost's early work. Their writings reveal a warmth and charm that give us the key to a legendary friendship."--Jacket.
