Scope and Contents

This addition to the Zulfikar Ghose Papers consists of drafts and proofs of most of his published and unpublished works dating from Statement Against Corpses (1964) to Kensington Quartet (2005, unpublished), as well as for many articles, essays, poems, and short stories. Significant correspondence is present, including letters to and from notables such as Wilson Harris, B. S. Johnson, Christopher Middleton, and A. C. H. Smith, as well as additional personal and business related correspondence. Also among the materials is a small amount of personal and professional items, including photographs, records from his teaching career at the University of Texas at Austin, scrapbooks containing clippings of his journalism articles, and reviews of his literary work.

All of the material remains in the order it arrived at the Ransom Center, and only minimal processing has been done to ensure the safety, preservation, and accessibility of the collection. The Folder List is arranged into three series: Works, Correspondence, and Personal and Professional Materials. Series I. Works is further divided into two subseries: A. Novels and Other Works, and B. Shorter Works. Packing lists, written by Ghose and included inside the original shipping cartons, are located in the first box of items from each respective shipping carton. Original files, folders, and labels with titles and/or notes written on them by Ghose have been retained.
