Scope and Content Note

The series consists of McBreen's editorial work on the poetry anthology, The White Page: Twentieth-Century Irish Women Poets (1999). This comprehensive study of contemporary Irish female poets features brief biographies and single poems by prominent poets, which are found in manuscript and typescript form in the individual author folders in the subseries. In addition, the author folders, which are arranged in alphabetical order, contain correspondence between McBreen and the authors, demonstrating a vibrant and mutually supportive literary network of Irish female poets. The subseries also includes editorial corrections, clippings about various poets, proof copies of the anthology, contributor lists, literary contact information, and general correspondence concerning the writing and publication of The White Page. Importantly, the subseries also holds a typescript draft of McBreen's editorial introduction to the anthology, an essay that first originated while the poet wrote her master's dissertation on Irish female poets. Photographs of The White Page contributors including publicity photos, portraits, and personal snapshots donated to McBreen may be found in Series 6: Photographs.
