“The newly discovered correspondence, some of which I have included here, encompassing many of the leading poetic figures of the 1930s, forties and fifties, such as Pound, Schwartz, Williams and Rexroth, is indicative of the high regard they had for Macleod, who affected their own thinking and their own work. Eliot was inconsistent in his praise, though he was impressed with several of these works of poetic innovation. The connections Macleod made with his American contemporaries are among the most important of his time.”
