Summary

The bulk of the collection comprises papers associated with O'Connor's poetry. There are drafts of a number of his published books of verse, together with reviews of his books, copies of poems published in journals and newspapers and a large group of drafts of poems. A series of correspondence relates mainly to O'Connor's activities as a writer including publication of his work and his participation in literary events.
