Malcolm Lowry collection

  • CA UVICARCH SC256
  • Collection
  • [194-]

The collection consists of a three vol. set of Shakespeare's Works (J. Payne Collier, Lupton Pub. New York, n.d.) which Malcolm Lowry has used as notebooks, as well as for annotations on the texts themselves. These volumes, given by Lowry to his friend George Stevenson, were used as a resource by Lowry, especially during the composition of Under the Volcano. The volumes include poems and jottings by Lowry on fly leaves and paste-downs and on p. 944. In addition, textual annotations by Lowry occur most heavily in The Tempest, Merchant of Venice, Timon of Athens and, to a lesser extent, The Sonnets.

Lowry, Malcolm, 1909-1957
