Thank you Tony for sharing this, I remember that once I saw something like this, but always is so nice to look into.

Hi Tony,

 

What a treasure find! Thank you so much for taking the trouble to post this. Eliot's and Plath's typed manuscripts make quite a contrast to the hand written ones of Wordsworth, Keats, Hardy and Yeats!

 

Made me nostalgic about the the time when hand written documents were more common. Now we can't think or work without a PC !

 

Looking at these one realizes how the greats too must have had moments of doubts, frustration - all those crossed out lines and little notes at the sides !

 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this viewing.

The nice thing about it, Golden, is that we can all still create our art -- our poetry -- with pen, pencil, and scraps of paper even if it came down to Y3K all over again. :D Some art certainly depends on technology (like electronic music, for instance), but poetry exists despite technology; it can only be augmented by it.

 

I still like to come up with the raw material for poems with pen and paper -- I find it easier to stare at a blank sheet of paper than a blank screen and blinking cursor -- but, yes, I always implement the computer's word processing features to complete a poem. Would the greats have used computers and the net had these things been available during their times? Yea, probably.

 

Tony :)
