This volume contains 942 letters written between October 1916 to June 1921. These letters show the frustration he experienced in finding a publisher for Women in Love in the wake of the Rainbow prosecution. Concurrently he began to write the essays which subsequently formed Studies in Classical American Literature, he also planned and wrote a school textbook, Movements in European History. There were important changes in his business affairs: the beginning of his association with the American publisher Thomas Seltzer and the change from the literary agent Pinker to Mountsier in New York and Curtis Brown in London. There is a particularly interesting correspondence with Compton Mackenzie, and the rupture of his old friendship with Middleton Murry and Katherine Mansfield. This period was a turning point, the beginning of his break with England and with Europe, before he made his journey to Ceylon and Australia en route for the USA. Published in two volumes.
