On Ruth Pitter: Award-Winning Poet and Friend of C. S. Lewis
I have something a little different for you today. I met writer and poet Colin Burch a couple of summers ago at a poetry workshop at a CS Lewis conference. Recently on his website, Colin interviewed the author of Hunting the Unicorn: A Critical Biography of Ruth Pitter. A British poet, Pitter was a personal friend of C.S. Lewis and also the first woman to win the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry as well as other awards. She was admired by W.B. Yeats and members of the Inklings. To learn more about Ruth Pitter and Lewis as well, read Colin’s interview with Don W. King.
