Charles Causley and Siegfried Sassoon

Make sure to visit the fascinating War Poetry Blog written by Professor Tim Kendall of The University of Exeter, and especially if you are interested in the considerable correspondence between Charles Causley and  Siegfried Sassoon. Sassoon’s letters to Causley are kept in Special Collections at the University of Exeter.

Professor Kendall writes:

“Causley did a great deal to promote a poet who, in old age, felt himself to have been forgotten except as ‘the man who knew Wilfred’ … These letters to Causley have never been published, or until now, seen by scholars. I would be keen to hear from anyone who knows the whereabouts of the the other side of the correspondence: the letters from Causley to Sassoon.”
