Reflecting 50 years of friendship, these letters record a lively conversation between two equally strong female writers; both relished the play and beauty of words, and their first and most powerful link was through poetry. Within their correspondence--which encompasses lovers, husbands, children, books, art, writing, music, politics, gardens, and travel--there is joy and sadness, chaos and loneliness, success and failure, gossip and philosophy. More than 300 of their letters have survived, providing a rare and deeply moving insight into a long-standing female friendship.
