5 thoughts on “Letters to and from Sylvia Townsend Warner

  1. Oh joy! I too adored The Element of Lavishness, have returned to the letters several times for pure pleasure, and went on to read more of Maxwell’s writing just as I return to Warner’s. Indeed, on that end, thank you so much for publishing her work. What a gift!

    1. I’ve been seduced by Maxwell’s writing too; have borrowed one of his novels from the library, and bought a volume of two more novels and several short story collections second-hand. That should keep me happy.


  2. The Element of Lavishness is such a joy. I like STW better as a letter writer than as a novelist and never more than in this collection, where she and Maxwell are both so warm and fond in their treatment of one another. It’s beautiful writing but it’s also just a wonderful, loving relationship and a delight to the reader to be part of it.
