About This Item

[Np: The Author], 1981. Manuscript poem, in ink, on two conjugate folio leaves of handmade paper (26.5 x 19.5), enclosed in slightly larger folder with manuscript title caption on recto of upper leaf, and inscription on recto of lower leaf. Fine. A superb autograph manuscript of this poem in ten quatrains, in ink, in the poet's characteristic hand, with one significant revision. In its published form, "D.D. Byrde Callyng Jennie Wrenn," the poem is dedicated to the poet's wife, "K. T. Browne." On the recto of the lower cover leaf, the poet has inscribed: "For Kathy with love, De 8/14/81." The poem was published, in substantially altered form, first in 1984, as a limited chapbook by William Ewert, and then collected in SELECTED POEMS 1957-1987. In addition to a number of variations in individual word choice, this quite early manuscript evidences little, if any, of the idiosyncratic and archaic spelling that characterizes the final published form of the text.
