Correspondence from G.E. Moore to L. Wittgenstein, 30 Sep. 1936-5 Aug. 1945
Scope and Contents
Hopes Wittgenstein's move to new house was successful; Moore's writing not going well, 'I have been trying to think hard, but I find things very puzzling ... I have been reading through again all of your work that I have, in the hope of getting clearer'; Rhees not competing for Trinity fellowship, has taken a job in Deighton Bell's bookshop / Tim busy with harvest, cannot play duets: they will put off playing Bruckner's 7th to Wittgenstein; thought Schubert quintet wonderful, different from other Schubert 'in the same direction in which the late Beethoven works differ from the earlier ones'
