Randall Jarrell Manuscripts
Identifier: MSS 0009- Series 1
Scope and Contents
The Manuscripts series is divided into broadly into four subseries: original poetry, translated poetry, criticism, and a translation of the play, Goethe's Faust, Part I. The original poetry is arranged alphabetically by title. The translated poetry is arranged alphabetically by author name, except for a piece by Anton Chekhov, which is placed after the other poems because of its length. Jarrell's literary criticism is arranged alphabetically by author; criticism of work with no author's name given is placed after criticism of named authors and arranged alphabetically by title. The Goethe's Faust Part I manuscript is a translation of an epic play; the play is divided by scenes and arranged in order of storyline progression, with unidentified scenes arranged after the identified ones.
