Subseries 2.2
Poetry, 1971-2009
Boxes 12-18, 50-54; OP 1-2

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains manuscript and typescript drafts of poems from 1971-2009. Individual poems are collected by the volume in which they were first published. Folders include manuscript (MS) and/or typescript (TS) versions of the poems. Typescripts and proofs of entire volumes are included at the end of each volume's subsection to roughly demonstrate the chronological development of a published volume. Uncollected poems are filed in a separate subsection. Some poems were originally kept by Carson in folders containing both collected and uncollected manuscripts and typescripts. To assist with the dating of such poems, especially those in the uncollected section, bracketed notes have been added indicating that a particular poem originally was filed by Carson with materials largely pertaining to a specific volume.

Arrangement Note

Organized into two sections: (2.2a) Collected poems and (2.2b) Uncollected poetry.
