by A. Alvarez.
The Lockwood Library at Buffalo has the finest and most extraordinary collection of modern poetry in the world. Sorted away in the stacks are some five thousand sets of poets' worksheets-the notes, drafts, revisions, and completed texts of every kind of poem, master-pieces and doggerel. Will the collection be used to provide the cleanest understanding of the best versions of twentieth-century poems? Or will it be used simply as a museum of psychological curiosities, devoted not to poems but to the mystique of being a poet?
