Remains of Elmet

Scope and Content

Printed and typewritten with some autograph annotations. Includes an annotated copy of the published volume and drafts of the poetry, some of which vary from the final published versions. In the annotated volume, which is a copy of the 1979 edition of the poetry collection Hughes has noted which poems should be replaced, deleted or included. These notes appear to relate to the selection of poetry that Hughes included in the 1994 edition of the collection entitled Elmet which again included photographs by Fay Godwin. A number of unpublished poems and the poem ‘Wycoller Hall’, which was published in Ted Hughes Collected Poems as ‘Uncollected (1977-1978)' are also included.


Originally found in a cardboard box containing papers relating to different works.
