Scope and Content

Manuscript and typescript drafts of poems by Edwin Morgan, including some of his translations of work by other poets. Some ‘Writings’ files (2000-2005) also include other types of work and correspondence.


For most of his life, Morgan kept manuscript and typescript copies of his poems separate, in two sequences. In his later years, his filing arrangements changed and this is reflected in the ‘Writings’ files which include manuscript and typescript poems and overlap in date with the two earlier sequences.
