Product Description

An interesting letter written to E. L. Lushington from the editor of Edward Fitzgerald’s newly published correspondence (3 vols., 1889). Lushington has queried a passage to which Wright responds by declaring it to be printed exactly as Fitzgerald wrote it. He continues with references to a quotation from Keats’ ‘Endymion’, undertaking to supply an explanatory footnote to the quoltation in a second edition.
