John Gould Fletcher, the Pulitzer Prize–winning poet and essayist, was a prolific correspondent who, during the course of his life, wrote hundreds of letters to such literary luminaries as Harriet Monroe, T. S. Eliot, Amy Lowell, Conrad Aiken, H. D., John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, and Donald Davidson. With this finely edited volume, the entire John Gould Fletcher Series from the University of Arkansas Press is completed.
The Selected Letters of John Gould Fletcher
Edited by Leighton Rudolph, Lucas Carpenter, and Ethel C. Simpson
“The intent of the series is to present the best of Fletcher’s writing along with a generous selection of critical studies concerning Fletcher’s life and work. It is to be hoped that the series will reawaken and stimulate interest in a writer who, almost forty years after his death, is becoming known as perhaps the most representative poet of American literary modernism.”
—Lucas Carpenter in the preface to Selected Poems of John Gould Fletcher
