Lettter From Robert Lowell to Robert Frost
[April ? 1949]
I wish you could arrange through Merrill to come out and visit me. I have a Dante and a Shakespeare, but it is tough sledding not seeing another poet.
From: The Letters of Robert Lowell, (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2005), p. 138. In April, 1949, Lowell was a patient at Baldpate Hospital in Massachusetts, recovering from a manic episode.
