Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection consists of correspondence between Richard Aldington and his younger brother P.A.G. (Tony) Aldington. In these letters, Richard Aldington writes of many facets of his life, including topics never broached with others such as other family members and business issues.

Probably the most interesting aspects of the letters are his remarks and anecdotes about the literary people he knew, including his first wife Hilda Doolittle (H.D.), D. H. Lawrence, Lawrence Durrell, Herbert Read, Alister Kershaw, Amy Lowell, T.S. Eliot, and others.  There are also stories about people of whom he wrote, including several about T.E. Lawrence.

Biographical Note

Richard Aldington was born in Hampshire in 1882. Educated at Dover College and London University he founded the "Egotist journal "in 1913. He joined the British Army and served on the Western Front in 1916-1918 where he was badly gassed.

After the war Aldington published several volumes of poetry including "Images" 1910-1915 (1915), "Images of War" (1919), "A Fool in the Forest" (1925) and "A Dream in Luxembourg" (1930). His successful novel, "Death of a Hero", was a psychological study of a young officer in the First World War. It was during this time that Aldington began exchanging letters with Count Geoffrey Potocki de Montalk, a writer, scholar, private printer,  poet, and exiled Polish artistocrat.

Aldington also wrote controversial biographies of the "Duke of Wellington" (1946) and "D. H. Lawrence "(1950) and an autobiography, "Life for Life's Sake" (1940). Richard Aldington died in 1962.
