This book offers an incredible insight into the life and poetic workings of the great Anglo-Welsh writer Edward Thomas.

Gathered here is his correspondence with Walter de la Mare: 318 letters between 1906 and 1917, of which only three have previously been published. They include some beautiful natural descriptions along with moving personal revelations, and track Thomas’s progress as a reviewer and writer. Together they illuminate key ideas about poetic composition and also his understanding of his journey from prose writer to poet.

The book includes an Introduction, a transcriptor’s preface, biographical information on the two poets and suggestions for further reading.

Editor: Judy Kendall is the Programme Leader for English and Creative Writing at the University of Salford, and is an Edward Thomas specialist. Her publications include Edward Thomas: The Origins of His Poetry (2012) and Edward Thomas’s Poets (2007). Her own poetry is published by Cinnamon Press: The Drier the Brighter (2007) and Joy Change (2010).
