Remembering Northrop Frye: Recollections by His Students and Others in the 1940s and 1950s by Robert D. Denham

This book brings together letters from 89 of Northrop Frye’s students, friends, and acquaintances in which they record their recollections of him as a teacher and a person during the 1940s and 1950s. A number of the correspondents also provide their impressions of Victoria College at the time, where Frye taught for more than 50 years. The letters provide insights into Frye as a teacher that are not elsewhere available, and reveal a consistent portrait of an intellectually superlative, generous, and thoughtful man.
