Scope and Content

Manuscript of the selection, in the form of a typescript. Each of the translators supplied their own annotated typescript contributions (reflected in the slightly different typefaces which occur). Val Warner has marked the manuscript up for printing using pencil and red ink. Michael Schmidt has made some minor editorial changes in blue. There are various drafts of the acknowledgements, and original folios 3, 5 and 6 of the manuscript are stored at the end. Some carbon typescript sheets of queries and comments have been added by Warner, and there is an additional typescript sheet of comments which was forwarded to Warner [probably by Anthony Rudolf]. The manuscript is missing the final 10 poems of the selection.


Because there are various additional pages and folios stored out of order, the archivist has added running numbers at the top left of each sheet.
