Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Lynn Levin
Dear Editor,

Thank you for the portfolio of George Szirtes's poems from "In the Face of History" [February 2008]. Is that Albert Camus in the photo by Robert Doisneau entitled "Clandestine Press, Quartier Opera, Paris 1944"? If so, wouldn't that be a photo of the office of his resistance paper, Combat?

Southampton, Pennsylvania
