Collection Scope and Content Note
Show all series level scope and content notes
The Howarth collection is made up of material relating to his book about
Eliot and includes his letters to and from Eliot. Howarth submitted drafts
of his text to Eliot for comment and several drafts of the book with marginal
corrections by Eliot are housed in the collection, too. The collection offers
a unique opportunity to view the response of the subject of a critical biography
to the views of a biographer.
