The Inestimable Blessing of Letters

Romantic Circles has recently published a new collection of essays on Bloomfield, edited by John Goodridge and Bridget Keegan, and available online here.

Designed to accompany the online publication of Bloomfield's correspondence, these essays (by Tim Fulford, Peter Denney, Ian Haywood and Bridget Keegan) highlight and draw attention to aspects of his work that would in all likelihood not have been possible without full access to his letters. The essays included make a strong case for Bloomfield as a figure worthy of serious study and suggest how much more remains to be said about this important and prolific poet.
