Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection, which is in typescript form and consists of: title, acknowledgements and contents pages; introduction; note on the text; Stokes texts, appendix and notes. The structure is slightly different to the published version and the introduction is also different. In addition, there are minor differences in the order of some of the poems, where pairs of poems have been transposed: 'Visitant' precedes 'Recall'; 'Tedium of Age' precedes 'André'; 'Remainder' precedes 'Party Value' and 'Poem: "Short of the seldom nightingale..."' precedes 'A Tired Approach to Venice'. Minor annotations and handwritten foliation are probably by Peter Robinson. Two different folios have erroneously been numbered 28.
