George Simmers today reports on the happy fact that Siegfried Sassoon's papers have been saved for the nation. In the process, he reserves some well-aimed barbs for Andrew Motion (whose grasp of Great War history is not entirely secure) and Michael Morpurgo (who is credited by George with a love of 'grand simplicities'). Morpurgo's latest meanderings on the 'futility' of the War can be found here.
I have blogged previously that the University of Exeter holds twenty letters from Sassoon to Charles Causley. I am keen to trace the other side of the correspondence: letters from Causley to Sassoon. They do not seem to be among the papers bought by Cambridge, or any of the other significant Sassoon archives. If you know of their whereabouts, please get in touch.
