T. E. Lawrence, More Correspondence with Writers

Edited by Jeremy and Nicole Wilson

Fine press edition of 377 numbered copies printed for subscribers

T. E. Lawrence Letters, Volume VI

Castle Hill Press, 2014

ABOUT THIS BOOK

This volume is one of the largest in the T E. Lawrence Letters series, containing over 200 letters. At the core of the collection is a series of significant relationships that Lawrence developed with other writers. These are exchanges where for some reason an initial contact developed a warmth that went further than mere acquaintance. Some of the exchanges are substantial - for example, the correspondences with C.M. Doughty, Frederic Manning, and Siegfried Sassoon. We have also included a number of shorter exchanges which seemed to us to belong in this volume.

The letters are engaging and interesting in many ways. From a biographical standpoint, some are among the most important that survive.

The writers represented are Maurice Baring, Laurence Binyon, Edmund Blunden, John Brophy, Noël Coward, C. Day Lewis, Charles M. Doughty, Harley Granville-Barker, James Hanley, Frederic Manning, Herbert Read, Siegfried Sassoon, H.M. Tomlinson, H.G. Wells, and W. B. Yeats.

In parallel with this volume we are working on a collection of Lawrence's correspondences with bookmen, and his correspondence with Edward and David Garnett.
