Alcestis

Scope and Content

Partly printed, partly autograph drafts of Hughes's version of Euripides' play with autograph annotations, one of which is written in a Challenge notebook. Includes proofs from Farrar, Straus and Giroux dated 1999, which suggests that it was proof read and annotated following Hughes's death. Material in folders 1 and 2 was on Hughes's worktable when he died.

Arrangement

Originally found in a cardboard box containing proofs of different works. Papers have been retained in original order.
