Scholarly Commentary


The manuscript of the sonnet is the copy that DGR sent to T. Hall Caine in a letter of 16 February 1880. The scarcely legible accompanying note by Caine was written later. The location of the documents themselves is not known. There is no question, however, as to the authenticity of the document.
