This material includes: the Victoria Symphony Orchestra's 2006 birthday tribute; permissions letters to reprint published works (2001-2005); requests for interviews and invitations to readings and events; correspondence, royalty statements, permissions forms, and review relating to Page's publications with Porcupine's Quill; publicity material from Poppy Press's editions of 'Alphabetical' and 'Cosmologies'; printed broadsides by Signal Hill (1977); records relating to the 'Flask of Sea Water' and 'The Filled Pen' audio projects; 'Planet Earth' clippings and reviews; material (including poetry) used for public readings; correspondence and typescripts pertaining to translations; correspondence relating to Page's receiving and ultimately returning the Terasen Lifetime Achievement Award; the Doctor of Letters and convocation brochure from the University of Winnipeg; the Doctor of Letters from the University of British Columbia; the Doctor of Letters from Trent University; the Lieutenant-Governor's Prize (2004); and interest files on political correctness, Joseph Brodsky, Ted Hughes, Eric Ormsby, Idries Shah, and on Sandra Djwa's work on a biography of P.K. Page. The Subject Files of the 2010-0154 instalment of records arriving to Library and Archives Canada following Page's death contain a wider variety of material due to a number of the files having been formed by the accumulation of piles of records in various locations in Page's office. A number of the files inserted in the Subject Files series thus represent Page's intention for the records, rather than a unity of physical type. For this reason, subject files for this instalment include those labelled by the creator as "Pending" or by the executor as "Loose Sheets." Other files in the series retained more distinctly subject-based file labels (and thus file titles). Also in this series are posters and press cards relating to the publications of P.K. Page, exhibitions relating to her work, and the work of other authors, as well as a mock-up for the cover of "Cry Ararat!". Also includes 2 audio cassettes for The Conference of the Birds by Jeni Couzyn and a video recording for What Time is it Now? / compser Anna Hostman; libretto by P.K. Page.
- Information additionnelle :
- Note sur le classement :
The files are arranged alphabetically, as they were received at the National Archives, with a few files created at the Archives from unorganized material. The subject files of the 2006-2010 instalments appear as they arrived at the archives from the creator, P.K. Page. In the case of the final instalment, subject files were often created by the literary executor based on the accumulation of piles of records in Page's home office. By respecting the ways that these piles were laid out, an attempt has been made to preserve something of the creator's formation and use or, and intentions for, the records. Researchers looking for typescripts of Page's works should note that they appear both in the Manuscript series as well as the Subject Files series. Typescripts and proofs for published works that appear alongside correspondence and publicity materials in the Subject Files series include 'A Grain of Sand,' 'Up on the Roof' (included with 'Nine Stories and a Play'), 'Hand Luggage' (with Walrus Magazine correspondence and permissions), 'Brazilian Alphabet,' 'The Filled Pen,' 'Unless the Eye Catch Fire,' 'You Are Here,' and typescripts and notes for a variety of lectures and talks. These files are included in the Subject Files series because Page often amalgamated all material relating to a published work in one subject-based and subject-titled file.
