24 October: “Please will you congratulate and thank Gizella and everyone who took part in Friday’s event. I saw a good deal of it and Helen saw nearly all. Really it was most inspiring and heartening – just the sort of response we hope for and a real extension of the effect of the poems themselves. Altogether, a great achievement. Good luck to all of you in such important work.” David and Helen Constantine, Editors, Modern Poetry In Translation
26 October: “TSE Lecture. Nice to hear Donaghy’s poetry and its relation to Wilbur et al – but why on earth no questions/answers?”
