The series consists of occasional poems and lyrics by Burgess, which did not form part of his work on an identifiable project. A small number of brief music scores are also included.
Where possible, the catalogue gives the title that Burgess attributed to the poem or lyrics. However, where a poem is untitled, the first line is given in quotation marks.
For a copy of selected poems written by Burgess while he was an undergraduate student, see AB/ARCH/B/4.
For David W. Barber's setting of a poem by Burgess, titled The Silver Swan, see AB/ARCH/B/6.
