schema:reviewBody""When Great Britain declared war with Germany in 1939, the Oxford University Press moved its offices from London to Oxford, and poet, author, and Oxford University Press editor Charles Williams was forced to go along. Mrs. Williams, however, elected to stay in their flat in London. To Michal from Serge is an edited collection of the nearly seven hundred letters Charles wrote to Florence during the years they were separated." "These letters to "Michal," Williams's endearing name for his wife, from "Serge," a nickname by which his most intimate friends addressed him, are more than just love letters; they are significant for what they tell us about the man, for the light they throw on his work, and for the way they show Williams in the context of his literary contemporaries and friends (C.S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot, W.H. Auden, Dorothy L. Sayers, Christopher Fry, and Edith Sitwell). Williams felt that T.S. Eliot and C.S. Lewis were the only two people other than his wife to whom he could talk seriously about important matters." "This resource will prove especially valuable for those interested in glimpsing the tumultuous inner life of creative artist Charles Williams, poet and wartime writer."--BOOK JACKET."
