Letter from Beatrice V. Gwynn to Emmett L. Bennett Jr., November 19, 1967
MetadataShow full item record
Gwynn wishes Bennett safe travels on Crete and asks for well wishes from him on her forty-seventh birthday, November 19, 1967. She asks if Bennett will accept her works on Linear A and the Enkomi tablet. She regrets her work on the Phaistos disk, calling it a "nightmare", and speculates on the nature of knowledge as an untilled field. She writes of the Linear A tablet's interest to her, especially the votive tablets which contain female deities. She tells Bennett of a letter she found when she was Assistant Librarian at the Irish College of Surgeons, hidden in a book, asking a lady for the pleasure of an evening stroll. She concludes the letter with various thoughts on literature, deities, history, and the Enkomi tablet.
