    Once regarded primarily as a member of the Auden-Isherwood set, Louis MacNeice is now considered one of the greatest Irish poets of the 20th century. This magisterial collection of his letters - to recipients including his family and fellow poets Auden, Eliot and Larkin - offers a humane, witty reflection on his Irish Protestant heritage, his turbulent love life, his work at the BBC - and an enthusiastic celebration of what he described in his poem 'Snow' as 'the drunkenness of things being various'.
