Alexandra Seddon, manuscript poems

Scope and Content

Bundle of holograph and typescript poems compiled by Alexandra Seddon. [Seddon's correspondence file (at CPA/2/1/63) indicates that she was working on a projected anthology of Papua New Guinea literature for Schmidt which was not ultimately published; this material appears to be the result of that work]. It consists of original poems in the Pidgin language of Papua New Guinea, with English translations by various people, including Seddon herself; some of the poems also include explanatory notes.
