Beschreibung

A collection of Lynette Roberts's prose, this assortment relates her life in rural south Wales during World War II, offering insight into a fascinating period of history and showcasing how ordinary people's lives were impacted by international events. This assemblage includes "Village Dialect"--Roberts's highly original account of the genesis of poetic language--as well as her notes on her friends and contemporaries Edith Sitwell and T. S. Eliot and her correspondence with Robert Graves, for whom she helped research "The White Goddess."
