Description/Abstract

Some of the most choice collections in the Manuscript Department of Syracuse University Libraries are also among the most modest in extent. The papers of English author and poet A.E. Coppard fit into both categories. Housed comfortably in a single box, fifty-five letters, three short stories in holograph and one speech provide a close look at Coppard's literary theories, criticism, opinions of his own work and that of a few others, reaction to approaches regarding dramatizing, filming or televising his prose works, dealings with publishers, and his activities on behalf of world peace through the Authors' World Peace Appeal in the early 1950's.
