Manuscripts, 1897-1953 February 5
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Includes Smith's manuscripts, notes, and proofs for his last anthology, The Golden Shakespeare; manuscripts of "Saved from the Salvage," about his recollections of Venice during the winter of 1897 and 1898, which appeared in Horizons (March, 1943); and "Slices of Cake," an account of his meeting Henry James at Edith Wharton's shortly after the outbreak of World War I, published in The New Statesmen and Nation (June, 1943); as well as a few miscellaneous writings.
Heavily marked and annotated, these manuscripts are representative of Smith's method of composition, which entailed constant revision of his work.
