About the Book

Eminent English Letter Writers XVIII Century is a valuable work for creating an awareness of the less known works of the well known literary luminaries of the century. The letters of Lady Mary Wartley Montague, Lord Chesterfield, Horace Walole, Thomas Gray, Samuel Johnson, Pope and William Cowper are like a prism reflecting the different facets of the personalities of the authors as well as the latent literary artist in them. As a letter is the soul of a writer according to Samuel Johnson we can easily peep in the innermost recesses of their heart and mind and have the joyof possessing some of the secrets which would have otherwise not seen the light of the day.
