Scope and Content

All the essays in the volume. Including slightly different, additional copies of 2 of the essays: a later, revised and shortened version of `Three Ways of Saying Things', intended for a lecture at Burford in 1928, and an extra manuscript of `Doing Without Workmanship' which has no title page and which differs from the published version. Plus complete cuttings of a three- part essay, `Only Too Clear', which appeared in The Nation and the Athenæum on 20 and 27 May, and 3 Jun 1922, on which the manuscript version of `Only Too Clear' is based. The title of the essay `Delights of Tragedy' has been changed from the original `The Enjoyment of Tragedy', and this essay also has a number of typescript pages which have been extensively amended by hand.
