Subseries 2.2
Collected poems, 1957-1995
Boxes 59-80; OP2-7, 105-107

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of poems by Ted Hughes that have been collected in published works from 1957-1995. Materials relating to his published collections may include drafts of the book's table of contents, manuscript and typescript poems, complete typescripts, and proofs. The manuscripts and typescripts of individual poems have been arranged alphabetically by the poem's title. If a poem was known by more than one title, the variant title(s) have been provided in brackets. If a poem was made up of, or included, other poems this is also indicated in brackets, thus [includes . . . .]. Because of Hughes' propensity to reuse paper, cross-references are used to note locations of related materials in other parts of the collection.
