Series Description

From the Series:

This series contains works generated by Hughes and constitutes the bulk of the collection. It is sub-divided into Short Stories and Poetry by Hughes. Short Stories are further sub-divided into Short Stories and Story Lines. Both are arranged alphabetically and arranged according to the type of document generally in order by handwritten note, typescript draft, typescript, typescript copy, copy, then submission to editor.

Poetry is sub-divided into a Poem List, Poems, “Journey to a Hard Conclusion” edits, “Journey to a Hard Conclusion” printout, Untitled Handwritten Poems, and Submissions to Editors. Poem List consists of numerous drafts of a handwritten list of poems by the author. Additionally, the poems are arranged alphabetically and according to document type mainly consisting of printout drafts. “Journey to a Hard Conclusion” edits contains drafts as collected by the author of poems included in the book of the same title arranged alphabetically and by document type. Of special note is the “Journey to a Hard Conclusion” sub-series. This folder contains a complete printout copy of the book. Untitled Handwritten Poems contains random poems written on various papers. Again, these poems were collected and written by the author and because they contain no title have no fixed arrangement. Finally Submissions to Editors are letters to and from various editors submitting, accepting, or refusing Hughes’ work. Arranged chronologically, this folder was only altered from its original submission by arranging in date order. All other material grouped together is as submitted by the author.
