Details

Material Type: Manuscript
Document Type: Book, Archival Material
All Authors / Contributors: Oscar Wilde; Marjorie Wiggin Prescott
OCLC Number: 270892907
Notes: The manuscript reflects changes made for publication in Poems (1881): the word "night" in the title has been crossed out; in the fifth line the words "For sins that neither prayer or priest atone" have been crossed out and changed to "For sins no bleating victim can atone;" in the seventh line the initial words "Clothed with" have been crossed out and changed to "Girt." The final six lines appear essentially as they do in the 1881 edition.
Removed from PML 128825, A book of jousts, edited by James M. Lowry, [1888], into which the manuscript was tipped between p. 36-37, opposite the printed poem "A night vision."
