Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of all the translations included in the volume, and the glossary. This takes the form of ribbon and carbon typescripts, one cutting, and in the case of the Mayakovsky translations pages extracted from Morgan's 1972 Carcanet volume of Mayakovsky's work. There is a handwritten title sheet (supplied by Morgan) for each author, and a manuscript note after each poem of the title in its original language (also by Morgan). Morgan has added one or two notes about the layout of specific poems. Some typesetting instructions and indications of projected page breaks have been added in blue pencil and black ink.
