Vibrant with Words: The Letters of Ursula Bethell

Front Cover
Victoria University Press, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 370 pages
"To date, no full-length biography has been published; these letters (few of which have ever been published before) allow her to tell her own life story, in a narration that can be earnestly solemn or gaily witty, that records moments of joy and of sorrow, but that emerges finally as an intensely moving account of one woman's attempt to come to terms with the grief that dominated her final years. With their extensive annotations, they give us an unrivalled picture of this significant woman, and her attitudes to life and literature."--BOOK JACKET.
