MOTTRAM, Professor Eric Noel William (1924-1995)

Eric Mottram: A bibliography

Compiled by Bill Griffiths

Introductory Note

This bibliography is a reworking and expansion of the provisional bibliography issued early in 1998, and now constitutes, it is believed, a reasonably complete list of printed works by and about Eric Mottram (1924-1995), late Professor of English and American Literature at King's College London.

Though the principal checking and location of additional entries has been undertaken by Bill Griffiths at the Archives, King's College London, there has been necessarily a considerable debt to previous lists of Mottram's work as published by T. Wignesan in The Journal of Comparatve Poïetics (Revue de Poïetique Comparée) 1/1 (1989-1990) pp. 56-63 and the 'Supplement to Eric Mottram's works listed in vol. 1 no. 1 (1989-90)' in the same journal 1/2-3 (1990-1991) p. 68. This pioneering work is gratefully acknowledged.

The framework for these earlier versions seems to have been a document supplied by Mottram himself, that he had typed up in 1988, and subsequently updated to 1990 (Mottram Archive at 3/12). It contained some recognisable minor errors (e. g. 'old wood' instead of 'new wood' in the title of a review article of 1962) that have entered print unnoticed. As one cannot be certain that Mottram's typing was not free of other inaccuracies, it proved necessary to recheck dates and page numbers, throughout. More positively, Mottram's own holdings, especially of newspaper cuttings, have supplied many new minor entries such as reviews. Perhaps some few more entries of this kind remain to be discovered: press articles are often mentioned in the diaries, but are not easy to identify. (Information on further articles by Mottram and on further reviews of Mottram's work will be very welcome.) Meanwhile, more of his poetry enters print or is reprinted, and new research work based on the Archive begins to be published and increases the list.

Arrangement The bibliography is arranged overall in sections as noted above in the List of Contents. Within sections, the arrangement is chronological and then alphabetical by first word of the title.
