Scope and Content Note

The writings by James Simmons found in this series include collected and uncollected poetry, prose, songs, translations, notebooks, and works edited by Simmons. The individual poems in Subseries 3.1 are filed alphabetically within each collected work; the collected works are arranged chronologically. If a poem was published in more than one collection it is filed with the first collection in which it was published. Subseries 3.1 also includes two unpublished collections of poems; while some of these poems were eventually published, they were not published in these original groupings. Also included in Subseries 3.1 are several uncollected individual poems, arranged alphabetically. When multiple poems appear on a single manuscript page, cross references have been provided. Subseries 3.2 is further separated into groups of Essays, Articles, and Reviews, Short Stories and Novels, Lectures, and Drama and arranged alphabetically within each group. Subseries 3.6 contains the manuscript and typescript submissions for the first issue of The Honest Ulsterman, edited by Simmons.

Arrangement Note

Organized into five subseries: (3.1) Poetry, (3.2) Prose, (3.3) Songs, (3.4) Translations, (3.5) Notebooks, and (3.6) Works Edited by Simmons.
