No, it really pissed him off that she kept doing that. I'd be pissed too.

You could leave them with your library. Actually, it's important. Maybe someone in 60 or a 100 or 200 years is going to come across one, or some, of your published poems, and want to know more. It's such a drag doing research when you meet with dead ends. I know poets who have left it in their wills that their notebooks/unpublished poems go to the National Library of Ireland. They're men, of course (!) . I don't think I have enough confidence in mine, but I'd like to gather some for future generations. My great aunt left a hand-written book of hers, and it was lovely - I didn't even know she wrote.
