Scope and Content

Manuscript and contributors' proofs of PN Review 3 (1977). Contributions to this issue of the magazine were as follows: editorial and poem by C.H. Sisson; essays and review articles by Henry Gifford, Michael Hamburger, Michael Schmidt, Blake Morrison, Andrew Waterman, Dudley Young, C.J. Fox, Christopher Middleton, Clive Wilmer, Michael Cayley, Grevel Lindop and Donald Davie; poems by Charles Tomlinson, Grevel Lindop, Andrew Motion, Andrew Waterman, Roger Garfitt, Clive Wilmer, Peter Scupham, Timothy Dekin, Fleur Adcock, Donald Hall, Jenny Joseph and Alain Bosquet (with note by Lawrence Durrell, translated by Samuel Beckett and Edward Lucie-Smith); an answer to Donald Davie's 'Letter from an Editor' (in PNR 2) by Richard Swigg; letters from David Wright, Neil Powell and R.A. Sharpe; and book reviews by Alan Young, Michael Schmidt, Michael Vince, Alan Munton, David Wright, David Levy, Canon A.H. Attwell and Grevel Lindop. The magazine was copy-edited by Val Warner.


Both the manuscript and the corrected proof of C.H. Sisson's editorial were originally stored with the material relating to PN Review 2 and wrongly identified as relating to Poetry Nation (now at CPA/1/1/2/9). The editorials may therefore have originally been intended for publication in PN Review 2.
