Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection in the form of photocopies from published sources and ribbon typescripts (the latter being previously unpublished poems found by Cluysenaar among Singer's papers). Typescript preliminaries and part titles have also been added. Michael Schmidt has edited Cluysenaar's preface and introduction in blue ink and pencil, and there is an additional page at the beginning of the introduction consisting of some revised passages for insertion. Cluysenaar has annotated the poems with suggestions for slight alterations in punctuation, and notes of sources for previously unpublished work. There are some minimal printing instructions in pencil. Stored with a note of a telephone number in an unidentified hand.


The manuscript retains its original foliation, and arrangement is as follows: unnumbered note and contents page; folios 1-2; unnumbered insert; and folios 3-151.
