    Abstract:
    UVic Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives hold prized materials in modern literature, ranging from nearly 400 letters by T.S. Eliot to Ezra Pound’s elucidation of his poetry for a German translation. A featured series in the leading journal Modernism/modernity recently discussed the former, with British scholars demonstrating their fluency with UVic Libraries’ holdings. The library is reaching a broad audience indeed. Yet, the major collections of literary papers are the true stars. John Betjeman, Poet Laureate and perhaps the most popular British poet of the twentieth century, is in this elite Victoria club, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Robert Graves and Sir Herbert Read in Special Collections and Archives.
