Subseries 3.4
Works edited by Frank Ormsby, 1979-1992
Box 24: folders 12-23 - Box 29; OP 7-9, 20

Scope and Content Note

In addition to his career as a poet, a writer of critical prose, and a magazine editor, Ormsby is noteworthy for his role in editing some very important anthologies or highly researched editions of single authors' works. Ormsby's Poets from the North of Ireland and A Rage for Order: Poetry of the Northern Ireland Troubles have proven to be both critically acclaimed and widely used poetry anthologies. His edition of the Belfast poet John Hewitt's Collected Poems has proven to be similarly valuable.

The correspondence related to the production of specific books is separately collected in the project correspondence subseries (1.2). Similarly, printed material (reviews and promotional materials) pertaining to specific volumes is arranged by book in the printed material subseries (5.2).

Arrangement Note

Materials in this subseries are arranged chronologically by volume. Each book's subsection contains distinct items relevant to its production, though many of the books offer drafts of research material or bibliographies, introductions, and collections of primary, mostly photocopied documents.
