Angus MacLise papers, 1956-2010

Series I: Manuscripts and Written Material, 1959-1979

Series I contains poetry, notes, prose pieces, lists, theatrical pieces, stage designs, text fragments, and other manuscript material primarily created by MacLise, though also with material written by Hetty MacLise and other members of MacLise's circle. Many of these manuscript items include illustrations or other artwork. Many of the items in this series are in fragmentary form or represent notes and ideas that were never developed into published poems or documents. While the majority of the items are originals, some photocopies are also included in the series; these are clearly noted.
