Scope and Content

Small quantity of proof sheets relating to British poetry since 1970: a critical survey, edited by Peter Jones and Michael Schmidt (Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1980). The book was typeset in-house at Carcanet and printed by Billings. This file contains page proofs of 'A Short Anthology', featuring work by 19 poets, which was compiled by Schmidt and included at the end of the book of essays, following the bibliography (pp. 195-250). The proofs have been corrected and annotated in various hands: Schmidt has listed the poets to be included in black ink on the first sheet; a proof-reader has marked corrections in black; further corrections have been made in red, probably by Jones; and Schmidt has added further annotations in green.


These proof pages had been filed under 'S' presumably because Michael Schmidt's name appears at the head of his introductory paragraph on the first page.
