Scope and Content

Manuscript of the book from preface onwards, which takes the form of ribbon and carbon typescript, and Chapter One ('What is Traditional Poetry'?) is a photocopy of Powell's article of the same name [taken from PN Review 2]. This has been marked up with instructions on format and layout for printing, probably at the printing house rather than by Carcanet personnel.


The page numbering system is as follows: Powell's original typescript numbering i-ii; photocopied article numbered 31-38; typescript numbering system running 20-85, with additional inserts 85a and 85b before 86.
