Abstract:

In a series of letters, July 1946 through October 1947, Taylor critiques one of Macauley's short stories and describes his own teaching opportunities, works in progress, and infatuation with playwriting. He also discusses the need for a literary magazine edited by someone under forty who can recognize new talent; his "grand revolt against impressionist dogma" and his plans to purchase and remodel the homeplace of his wife's family.

There is also a letter, 1947 December 11, Taylor, Greensboro, N.C., to Macauley mentioning speeches to be made by John Crowe Ransom, Randall Jarrell and others at the Arts Forum of the Women's College of the University of North Carolina in the spring and Robert Penn Warren's difficulty in writing an introduction to Taylor's second book.

In addition a letter, 1948 April 22, Taylor mentions that "The Sewanee review" will be printing his first play and that he finds playwriting his best method of expression.
