Scope and Content

Book file containing manuscript and proofs of Elizabeth Daryush's poetry pamphlet Verses: seventh book, with a preface by Roy Fuller (Oxford: Carcanet Press, 1971), printed by Parchment (Oxford) Ltd. A copy of the published pamphlet which has been corrected by Daryush can be found at CPA/1/1/1/25/6. These corrections were made in preparation for the publication of Daryush's Collected poems in 1976.


The corrected copy of the pamphlet referred to above has been moved by the archivist to the book file relating to Daryush's Collected poems because it was clearly used in the preparation of the later volume, and was originally stored in an envelope with a corrected copy of Daryush's Selected poems from Verses I-VI.
