Letter: C. Day Lewis to Richard Church

Scope and Content

Thanks for his letter and encouragement about his poety. 'Please don't let young Fuller (or Spiller, or Tiller, or Spender, or Gender) get you down. Your own poetry is the only witness that need be called for the defence against this farcical sort of criticism which says that one must be brushed by the wing of Eliot or Auden in order to be saved'. Christmas greetings.
