This is a lovely collection of letters and correspondence exchanged between T. E. Lawrence (1888-1935), the British archaeologist and army officer, and the Shaws. George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950 was an Irish playwright and critic, while his wife Charlotte Payne-Townshend (1857-1943) was an Irish political activist.
Lawrence and the Shaws had a very special relationship, to the extent that Lawrence changed his name to T. E. Shaw after his anonymous identity was exposed in 1923. These letters, particularly the ones sent between Lawrence and Charlotte, are said to be 'revealing as to his character'.
Contents include various letters exchanged by Lawrence and the Shaws between 1922 to 1926, as well as a Foreword by Jeremy Wilson, 'Notes on the Transcription and Editing', and descriptions of meetings between Lawrence and the Shaws.
This volume is the first of four volumes within the series.
Edited by Jeremy and Nicole Wilson.
