Blume, Peter

1981 May 4

Kilpatrick, Jack

Sent with clipping (not extant) and writes admiration of RL's Oresteia, which he reviewed. TLS. 1p.

"Nothing in the world of literature has so thrilled or excited me in a long time...I fear my review is not a very professional job, for God knows I am no Greek scholar, but personally as well as publicly I wanted to let you know what a wonderful piece of poetry you have created here."

1953 June 18
61 Laing, Alexander

Regarding the death of his wife, the poet Dilys Laing.

Also includes a copy of a program of his wife's poems, assembled after her death, and with a note in his hand to RL.

"It's unwary of me to trust my judgment in matters springing out of my own experience as well as out of yours, yet I should tell you that your poems of simple recollection of your own emotional experience seem to be your very best. Nothing odd about that, is there, now that it's stated? I suppose I've had to get over my memory of most of the Lattimore I've read, for many years, as having been translation that I was moved to trust..."

"...Your devotion to Greece has acted somewhat in the same fashion, hasn't it? Instead of the long middle period of grinding it out, you've dealt all the way with first rate material and have kept your skill sharp in translating it so freshly. Am I permitted to think that now the just rewards are arriving...that the high inner experience of Lattimore himself will be more and more the subject?"

1963 Apr 18

Lattimore, Owen.
Richmond Lattimore's brother Owen Lattimore was a scholar, author, and teacher who also travelled extensively and worked in China and other eastern countries.

More correspondence from Owen Lattimore (including letters from Eleanor Lattimore, Alice Lattimore, and Richmond) may be found in Box Five of Katherine McBride's general correspondence.

Writes that he has just left Mongolia and while in a city library has found a medieval MS of the Drutski-dubetski family "where Uncle Alec had been a tutor!...I've never owed the Mongols so much friendship as I do now. They really put me on my feet. And I'm coming home with so much work to do that I shall just have to start my new life." ALS. 2p.

1970 Oct 13

Letter from Piel Gerard to RL, sending Owen's address. TLS.

1981 Apr 14

Sent notes constructed from a class meeting and thanks for RL visiting his class. ALS. 1p.


McGrew, Julia

In response to The Stride of Time. TLS. 1p.

"But 'Eagle Over the Coast,' even, or especially, for one who tends to diminish Robinson Jeffers as too often a poseur, is...most extraordinarily re-creating a poem -- re-creates the poet, the experience of his best writing, and re-creates a KIND of reading."

1966 June 17

[Meredith, William]

Signed "Bill." Thanks RL for a sheaf of his poems. ALS. 1p. See also Meredith's poems inscribed in RL in Folder 22 and his other letter seconding his nomination of Frederick Morgan to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

"I'm delighted and grateful for the little sheaf of best Lattimore. 'Shanhaikuan' is absolutely lovely. 'Aspects of Time' is fine - the words like found stones from another age. It's comradely of you to send them..."

1981 Apr 18

Moss, Roger W.

Invitation to membership in the Athenaeum. TLS. 1p.

1981 Mar 30

Perel, Earl Jay

In response to RL having read his typescript. TLS. 1p.

"I was pleased to learn that you enjoyed my work, Although I would have very much appreciated some slight comment, especially on the poetry...Let me thank you again for your willingness to help me. I quite agree: it is something difficult to sell."

1975 Sept 29

Pritchard, William

Pritchard's thoughts on modern poets. TLS. 1p.

"Cummings? Well, he's just never meant much to me; but I could be impressed by an account of him as a superb song-writer. I must think about Cummings more. Jeffers I have never got anywhere with; and since I've gotten everywhere with Frost, I can't understand your preference for the former."

1977 Dec 22

RL's draft response in his hand. TL. 2p.

"As for Frost, I think back to a generation ago when I argued with friends who were horrified to hear that I thought Jeffers a better poet than Frost. Why on earth, they asked me, and I could only mumble weakly, because he writes better poetry. This I still think to be true: a more imaginative eye, surer ear, stronger hand, stronger lines...Williams has far more followers, though his influence is mostly bad (wasteful spate of watery verse)."


Radloff, Mrs. Carol

Director of the North Shore Country Day School, requesting permission for the high school to perform RL's Trojan Women. TLS. 1p.

1971 Oct 6

Richards, I. A., and Dorothea Phillip Richards

In thanks for a copy of Sestina for a Far-Off Summer. Dorothea adds her remembrances about ascending Parnassus. ALS. 2p.

1965 Mar 8

Richards, J. F. C.

Regarding retirement and RL's fortunate position at Bryn Mawr. ALS. 2p.

"It must be very gratifying, as you retire, to know how much you have been appreciated at your college. I have always been happy for your sake that you were allowed to do what you do so well, and that you could spend your time writing poetical translations of Greek authors, instead of hunting for some boring subject, which would be accepted as a contribution to knowledge, however insignificant it might be. The rest of us were always caught in that kind of rat-race, asking nervously what we must do to be saved. But you remained gloriously free on the heights and Bryn Mawr was delighted to keep you there."

1971 July 12

Sexton, Anne

Writes in thanks for a copy of RL's Sestina for a Far-Off Summer. TLS. 1p. With corrections and exclamations in AS's hand.

1962 Sept 16

1964 June 9

Wheelock, John Hall

Regarding reprints sent to him, RL's tribute to Richards, and RL's poetry. ALS. 4p. With envelope.

"I would say that we see pretty much eye to eye where many of our youthful contemporaries are concerned...I am an admirer of your own poetry, and am by no means willing to see it yield first place to your scope and virtuosity as translator. You are one of the true poets of our time who write not too much but too little."

1974 Jan 5

Williams, Miller

In response to RL's interest in him. TLS. 1p.

"I'm honored to have attracted the interest of a poet and scholar of your distinction and I wish I could give you an answer to your questions that would be more satisfying to you than this one is likely to be. All I can tell you is that the answer is in the mystery."

1983 Mar 8

Williams, William Carlos

Williams' response to reading Lattimore's poetry and a statement of his interest in the effect of classical languages, particularly Greek, on modern poetry. Discourses on the qualities needed for greatness as a poet. TLS. 1p.

"What I am interested in is how a knowledge of the old language has influenced you in writing modern english or american verse. You are not quite easy in the medium. You do not quite make your verses sound as if they originated in a language which is in everyday use..."

1953 June 25

Winnington-Ingram, R. P.

Regarding honorary membership in the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies. TLS. 1p.

1981 Nov 16

Writes in response to Leach's letter and encloses his chapter on Legend. Mentions that he does not have a lecture topic and is "not much inclined to write one.
