Ask two poets what their first drafts look like, and you'll likely get wildly different answers. From typed pages with delicate annotation to hasty scribbles in a dog-eared notebook, drafts often tell us so much more about poems - and their poets - than the published versions ever could. This book presents manuscripts ranging from John Keats' drafts in his own hand, to poems written on toilet paper by Sylvia Pankhurst while confined in Holloway Prison, to early versions typed by Sylvia Plath on the reverse of Ted Hughes' own discarded work.
