The Lyttelton/Hart-Davis Letters are a correspondence between two literary Englishmen, written in the 1950s and 1960s and published in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Famous quotes containing the word letters:
“American thinking, when it concerns itself with beautiful letters as when it concerns itself with religious dogma or political theory, is extraordinarily timid and superficial ... [I]t evades the genuinely serious problems of art and life as if they were stringently taboo ... [T]he outward virtues it undoubtedly shows are always the virtues, not of profundity, not of courage, not of originality, but merely those of an emasculated and often very trashy dilettantism.”
—H.L. (Henry Lewis)
