This exhibit presents a selection of materials that demonstrate Robert Kroetsch's creative process when writing The Ledger.
The exhibit contains materials from the Archives and Special Collection in the University of Calgary. The materials include Robert Kroetsch's drafts and work on his poem, "Excerpts From The Real World".
In the exhibit, you will be able to see changes throughout the draft, which pinpoints towards Kroetsch's thought process.
There are also pieces of papers, typed and written, letters, and small notes with writing on them.
These items were chosen to demonstrate the variant forms of a single element of poetry that can be found within the Kroetsch archive. By demonstrating the progress of a single passage, from an initial idea handwritten on an envelope, through hand written pages, and those typed both on lined and unlined paper, we hope to give insight into the creative process of Kroetsch's writing.
