Burdett Correspondence

Burdett was a contemporary of Reid’s at Cambridge. The topics are very much literary, rather than personal. In Private Road Reid writes that Burdett was while at Cambridge “working on an extremely bad novel, which I read, finding only one good sentence in it. (I conscientiously pointed this out this sentence to the author.)” Despite Reid’s comment Burdett’s literary and critical output was substantial.

The other side of this correspondence is contained in the Reid Collection also held at Special Collections (see: MS 44/1/23).
