Scope and Content

Author's original typescript, which is a mixture of typed sheets and typed poems which have been cut and pasted onto larger blank sheets; with preliminary pages supplied Carcanet Press. The poems have been emended in turquoise ink, probably by Buchanan himself. Further editing and printing instructions have been added in black ink, probably by Michael Schmidt. The manuscript includes some poems which did not appear in the published version, and which have been crossed through by either Buchanan or Schmidt.
