Scholarly Commentary


This copy of the poem must be fairly late. It is one of the manuscripts that came to the Lilly Library laid into a large paper copy of the 1881 Poems. A New Edition . In fact, this manuscript was printer's copy for the text that was printed in the first proof for Signature Y of the 1881 Ballads and Sonnets .
