NICHOLSON-39579-1.jpg
NICHOLSON (Norman, 1914-1987, Poet associated with the Cumbrian town of Millom)

Typed Letter Signed with autograph amendments to Michael CULLUP (born 1934, Author) thanking him for sending him "a copy of your poems ... I've not yet read them all - though Andrew Young used to say that you should never thank anyone for a book until you'd read it! - but I've sampled enough to enjoy their precision and shapeliness, often indeed, elegance. They show, one again, Carcanet's sense for the real thing ... I've visited Norfolk a number of times - the last, five years ago, in the Buxton-North Walsham area, on what was to be the last holiday with my wife. She fell ill just after our return, and died a year later, of cancer, so that East Anglia has a poignancy ... which seems to suit its landscape ..." with a postscript about gatecrashing a party at George Macbeth's Old Vicarage with Anthony Thwaite, 2 sides oblong 8vo., 14 St George's Tce, Millon, 24th February

PITTER-39584-1.jpg
PITTER (Ruth, 1897-1992, British poet, 1st woman to receive the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 1955)

Autograph Letter Signed to Michael CULLUP (born 1934, Author) saying that she is "very old and tired (shall be 100 in 1997 if spared, which Heaven forbid. Your poems are not at all bad, except for gloom and despondency - indeed very vivid here & there - some striking epithets (like Lydia Bennett's bonnet, there are plenty worse in the shop). Somehow I do not think your work has 'bottomed out' yet. Keep it up - never despair ... If you have a pocket magnifying glass, try looking at the flowers of a few very small weeds - I am not making fun of you - they are most eloquent. 'The yellow toadflax said 'be still', I see the Powers, They see me' ...", 2 sides 8vo., 71 Chilton Road, Aylesbury, 17th March
