Abstract

This article offers an account of the drafting process which led to W.S. Graham's 'Ten Shots of Mister Simpson' (1977), in particular noting how the poem began as an overt account of the predicament of a Holocaust survivor, before Graham abstracted away into more allusive reflection on language, communication, and the construction of images (photographic in the poem, but by analogy the poem’ s own mode of imaging). The influence of Robert Graves's The White Goddess on Graham's imagery is also explored.
