Letters from Mark Beech, Ian Pindar
Kidney's on Toast

Sir:

David C. Ward's replacement of 'coffee and oranges' at the start of Wallace Stevens's 'Sunday Morning' (PNR 195) suggests a new variety of cross-referencing between modernist authors. For surely this is Leopold Bloom's breakfast?

MARK BEECH
Edenbridge


Sir:

I think David C. Ward's rewrite of Stevens – organs in a sunny chair' – is an improvement: certainly 'more erotically charged'. It made me go back to the poem, where I was sorely disappointed.
