Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

This subseries includes materials related to publishing and permissions, including printed materials, revised typescripts for later reissues of Fagles's translations, and correspondence reflecting Fagles's relationships with his publisher, literary agent, and collaborators. Correspondence with Bernard Knox and Georges Borchardt is accompanied by a significant group of permissions inquiries and replies pertaining to the reuse of Fagles's work in publications and performances by others. A group of materials related to Fagles's revisions of his translations from the Greek for the Penguin Classics series in the early 2000s is also present. Researchers should note that Fagles kept all materials regarding the initial publication of each of his translations along with his complete files on those works; therefore, those searching for publication files regarding specific works should consult the corresponding subseries in Series 1.
