In his “confessions,” the Footnoter, one of the three editors of the Selected Letters of Robert Penn Warren, shares trade secrets, spins tales, and recounts anecdotes of success and failure in his attempts to bring understanding to metonymy, synecdoche, allusion, and suggestion as well as to identify individuals mentioned in the letters of Robert Penn Warren, particularly his attempt to discover the identity of the very skillful and amusing writer Paula Newman Miner and her attempt to remain an enigma wrapped in fog living quietly on Cape Cod with her husband and her Loenbergers.
