In addition to Graves’s poem, ‘The Moon Ends in Nightmare,”there are several pages of rough journal drafts of his poem, “A Bracelet,” that provide a glimpse into the poet’s creative process. Four photo albums are included in the issue: Robert Graves 1974, Robert Graves at Home, The Seizin’s Press, and A Family Album.  There are personal accounts of Graves as well as analytical essays, a memoir from Malahat editor, Robin Skelton, and “A Memory” by Susan Musgrave, who met Graves in Mallorca in 1970. In 1969, the University of Victoria obtained a collection of some of Robert Graves’s original work, including diaries, letters, and transcripts.
