Scope and Content

Typescript of the volume, initially prepared with details of Dutton as publishers; Carcanet have subsequently added some further preliminary sheets for British publication. Includes various layers of annotation (principally printing instructions) which presumably reflect the volume's preparation for both publishing houses. Post-it notes giving additional instructions on style and layout have been attached to the edge of many of the sheets; some of these have obviously become detached from the sheets at some point and been lost. Includes some ribbon typescript (principally in the case of the English translations), photocopied typescript, and published or typed versions of poems which have been taped to blank sheets.


The manuscript includes various original numbering systems. The archivist has now added running numbers throughout in the top left-hand corner of each sheet.
