The recent publication of collections of letters by T.S. Eliot and Ted Hughes has added immeasurably to the poets' literary legacies. Volume 2 of Eliot's Letters charts his transformation from bank clerk to editor (with a little bit of help from Bloomsbury), his despair at his marriage, and the appearance of The Hollow Men. Ted Hughes described letter writing as 'a conversation with the world'. A prolific master of the art, his selected letters illuminate his work and private life. John Haffenden and Christopher Reid discuss the task of editing the letters of Eliot and Hughes respectively and what they reveal about their subjects. (DeadGoodBooks)
