Scope and Content

File relating to American poet and critic Yvor Winters which contains three copy letters from Schmidt to the Swallow Press, Chicago, and the American University Publishers Group in London. Relates to The collected poems of Yvor Winters, with an introduction by Donald Davie (Carcanet, 1978), including references to: errors in the setting; royalties; the failure of Swallow Press (who published the book in America) to omit Carcanet's details from the American edition; the subsequent distribution of this edition in the UK via the American University Publishers Group; and Schmidt's protest against this, on the grounds that the Swallow Press edition was not for UK distribution.
