About this product
- DescriptionA celebration of the literary correspondence of Denise Levertov and William Carlos Williams - at once a portrait of two geniuses, the testimony of their remarkable friendship, and a seedbed of ideas about American poetry. The correspondence begins in Levertov's twenties as her first books appear in the USA. By 1959, Williams is congratulating her on her growth. The letters also chronicle their search, both individually and together, for a set of formal poetic principles, a search which culminated for Levertov in 1965, when she coined the term organic form . This volume contains 33 letters from Levertov and 31 from Williams.
