Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection, which is comprised of ribbon, carbon and photocopy typescript poems; the long poem 'Lies and Dreams' is in the form of a radio script from a reading of the piece by Geoffrey Banks on Radio 3, recorded on 13 May 1978 in Manchester and produced by Fraser Steel. Schmidt has added some minimal annotation and typesetting instructions. Some manuscript comments on specific readings in 'The Tied Cottager' sequence were made prior to the piece being photocopied for inclusion here.


The manuscript was unfoliated and the archivist has added running sheet numbers.
