Letter from David Jones to Jim Ede: discusses Ben Nicholson exhibition at Kassel; has been to visit Kathleen Raine; misses friends

Scope and Content

David Jones is much behind with his correspondence due he feels to extra work on his USA editions and also the move to Monksdene [residential hotel]. Glad that Helen Ede is better. Interested to hear of a Ben Nicholson exhibition in Kassell [Documenta III]. Long discussion of the Chilmark Press edition of the 'Ancient Mariner' mentioning Douglas Cleverdon, Will Carter and Louise Cowan. Harman Grisewood is retiring from the BBC; Rene and Joan Hague have moved to Ireland. Jones misses them all. Recorded an interview for the Lamont Library, Harvard; and a 'thing live written for the British Council'. Has been pleased by a perceptive review in the 'New Yorker' by Harold Rosenberg of 'Epoch and Artist' - discusses this at some length. He has been to visit Kathleen Raine where he also met Hubert and Leila Howard and Winifred Nicholson. Recommends to Jim's attention a Welsh scholar at Newnham called Rachel Bromwich. No address.
