    As we approach the centennial anniversary of Brooke's death the poet has been on my mind of late This is my second favorite book written by or about Brooke In this book readers get to know him better than in any other collection of his letters or in any biography The editor Keith Hale has added so much helpful material to the volume that as another reviewer pointed out brilliantly it almost reads like a Brooke auto biography Hale also is responsible for the book that I would rate even higher than this one In his Collected Poems and Letters from America With Photographs and a New Introduction readers get the best of Brooke's poetry and prose a fancifully weird introduction to the Letters from America by Henry James and an introduction to the volume written by Hale that is both a mini biography and mini historical commentary that contains things I suspect Yale UP would not allow in Friends Apostles as good as it is Of course if you get them both then you have the best of Brooke's poetry prose letters and the best commentary on Brooke But do beware of so many of the other Brooke biographies in print Some of them were written by gushing adorers who distort Brooke's story even than Geoffrey Keynes did back in the day when he was turned into a national hero Personally I'd stick to the two books I've mentioned here All the others are lacking in some way or are homophobic or contain horrible inaccuracies
