CONRAD CRITIQUES AMERICAN POET DAVID MORTON'S WORK856. JOSEPH CONRAD (1857-1924). Polish-born English novelist who drew upon his seafaring experiences, especially in the Malay Archipelago and on the Congo River, in writing his classics including Lord Jim (1900) and Nostromo (1904); noted for the rather pessimistic philosophical undertones of his novels. Superb ALS, 4pp, 4½"x6", Oswalds, Bishopsbourne, Aug 9, 1920. To an admirer, Kate Gordon Guill. Excellent literary content. Warmly thanking her for her letter and the enclosure [not present] of verse from a young American poet, he writes, "...The verse is very genuine and has appealed to me. My compliments to David Morton for having captured this...mood so charmingly and with such a felicity of expression and images. And as to your appreciation I need not tell that I prize it greatly both for what it says and for the manner of its saying so full of grace and generosity. Believe me your very faithful servant..." Accompanied by original transmittal envelope addressed in his holograph and copy of Ms. Guill's letter to him. David Morton (1886-1957) is considered one of the finest sonneteers of his period. Among his works is Ships in Harbor, and Other Poems (1920). Est: $600-900
