These writings by David Wright collect his written conversations with friends, most of them fellow poets. Norman Nicolson, C.H. Sisson, George Barker and Charles Causley are among those included. The elegies, written in informal and direct language, strike a note of celebration and bear witness to what survives loss. The clarity and nuanced rhythms of the poetry are all the more remarkable as Wright has been deaf since childhood.
