Scope and Content

Handwritten MS of the poem collection ‘The mirror running’. All leaves loose apart from those poems of more than one leaf. Some leaves are originals and some are photostats. MS foliation in the top right hand corner. Some of the poems are dated, and some have a note of the place in which they were written, or of the general origin of the idea. No further annotations. The final leaf has a photostat of an illustration by Milligan stuck onto it to accompany the poem ‘The Vedda’, depicting the head of a man with the signature ‘SM’ in the bottom right hand corner. According to notes under many of the poems, the works of Robert Graves are mentioned as having had an influence on them, although these parts appear not to have been included in the final published versions of the poems.
