Dear Elizabeth

"I hope you aren't thinking that I am a) dead b) annoyed. I'm neither, but I did have flu." Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell were two of America's most brilliant poets. Their friendship was messy, intense, unconventional and profound. Through their lives, they wrote over 400 letters to each other, spanning decades, continents, political eras. These are their words.
Author Sarah Ruhl
