Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the volume which takes the form of photocopied typescripts, photocopies from publications, and one original typescript poem. It consists of: the 'Translator's Introduction' [published as Pennington's 'Translator's Preface']; acknowledgements and notes on contents pages; photocopy of the contents page of Far within us, taken from a publication in the original Serbo-Croat; all the translated poetry texts and concluding historical notes. The poem called 'Peace-Bearing Song' in the published version is here given as 'Song of the Myrrh-Bearing Women'. There are minor emendations and notes made in pencil in the hand of Robert Wells. Schmidt has added minimal typesetting annotation.

Arrangement

The three initial sheets have been numbered i-iii by the archivist, and the bulk of the manuscript bears its original foliation, which begins at folio 3. Some of the sheets are missing; these are the pages which would have been devoted to part-titles and epigraphs, along with Popa's visual symbols for each book; these are now with the collated proofs in /3 below. The missing pages are as follows: 52-54, 100-101, 158-159, 201-202, 250-251, and 289-290.
