Letters that poet T.S. Eliot wrote to his muse and confidante Emily Hale will be unveiled after more than 60 years in storage.
The letters will be made available to researchers at Princeton University Library beginning Thursday and are expected to provide insight into the relationship Eliot had with Hale, his longtime friend.
There has been much mystery surrounding the exact nature of their relationship and letters from Hale to Eliot were burned.
The letters have been sealed since Hale donated them in 1956.
One scholar calls the unveiling the “literary event of the decade.”
