Tales from Ovid

Scope and Content

Partly autograph and partly printed. Contains two uncorrected proofs and one published volume of Tales from Ovid with autograph annotations and corrections; correspondence with Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Hughes's American publishers; a publishers' proof with some annotations and a copy of a dustcover for the volume. Undated drafts of the introduction for the volume and autograph notes about Ovid, which appear to be a draft of an acceptance speech for the WH Smith Award, which Hughes received for Tales from Ovid in 1998 are also included.
