Documents-

to connect the reader more directly with the author – I attach scanned fragments from a few of Peter’s papers:

  • “Un Tableau Balzacien” submitted during Peter’s year in Bordeaux (15 Jan 1980)
  • “A Myth on Night and Day” in its first draft (1992?)
  • on the opera Carmen written in faint pencil (30 Dec 1992)
  • journal entry from the hospital, 14 Aug 1994, with Peter suffering from toxoplasmosis

and to illustrate

  • this editor’s challenges and choices
  • effects of age, experience, illness … on Peter
  • Peter’s revisions and/or absence thereof
