The Colour Papers: White & Greene: Poetry + Letters by Ross Lawhead, Russell Thompson
Here at last is the first volume of letters and poems from the great poets Horace Greene and David White. Since being catapulted to fame by their mysterious disappearances, the poets have been much written of, but never in their own words. These men were unheard of in their own lifetimes, but they are not unheard of now. They are de-unheard of. With notes and an introduction by G. Gary Gray, this edition 'promises much, but delivers little... disappointment' (New York Financial Times). Contained in these pages are White's earliest attempt at his WWI epic, Greene's lost Sir Fortinbra chapter, the first recorded mention of 'Fradultes', and the initial grains of what would become known as 'The Middlesborough Cycle'.
