A new podcast from our occasional series, American Letters, is available:

Episode 3: Ernest Hemingway to Ezra Pound, 1931

Despite a broken arm and several broken fingers, Hemingway writes to his friend Ezra Pound and to Pound’s wife, Dorothy Shakespear. This podcast is available on our Website, through Yale University on iTunesU, and here.

Related materials may be found in the Ezra Pound Papers (YCAL MSS 43) and the Ezra Pound Papers Image Guide.

American Letters podcasts present individual letters from archival collections read by Beinecke staff members. Past episodes include Episode 1, Mark Twain and Episode 2, Rachel Carson.

Additional podcasts from the Beinecke Library can be found on iTunesU or the Beinecke website (http://www.library.yale.edu/beinecke/brblevents/blogspodcasts.html).
