T.S. Eliot's smile according to Ted Hughes

"His smile is like that of a person recovering from some serious operation," wrote Ted Hughes about T.S. Eliot in a letter.  Richard Eder reviewed the Letters of Ted Hughes, edited by Christopher Reid (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2008) in the New York Times (October 2, 2008).  New England Review 29.3 (2008) also published some of the letters.
