In Birthday Letters, Ted Hughes tells the story of a correspondence between two friends, one long-dead and one still living. Beginning with an envelope addressed to the living friend, the letters gradually become more personal, as the living friend recounts their memories of the long-dead friend. The letters are written in a simple, unassuming style, but they are filled with deep emotion. The story is both heartwarming and poignant, and it is a beautiful tribute to the bonds of friendship.; 8vo; FSA.
