Scope and content

20 Marmion Rd, Sefton Park, Liverpool. - Praise of Trevelyan's translations of Aeschylus' "Oresteia", Lucretius, and Theocritus. Hopes that Trevelyan will go on to produce a decent Greek text of Theocritus, as textual critics have no sense of poetry, but also says that translations must not keep him from his own work. Has seen Wilfrid [Gibson], who hopes to be able to get on with his "Krindlesyke", and has introduced him to ?Redwood Hudleson, author of an epic poem on evolution.
