Scope and Contents

Titled Dante in Winggield, Phillips writes that Astrid Furnival " has knitted me a new Dante sweater from the olive oil label etc." An actual label is collaged on the right side of this page next to a tag for Dante yarn. The newsprint is an advertisement of Dante's Inferno which is described "in the Sunday Times as stupendous, breathtakingly sumptous...epic...impressive limited de-lux edition took seven years to make." The handwritten dairy continues the tale of progress with a TV Dante. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
