This thesis is an analysis of the two surviving typescripts of Flann O'Brien's At Swim-Two-Birds. After a brief overview of both typescripts, the thesis focuses on the earlier of the two, especially its use of pink paper, and suggests (based on subject matter, pagination, and stylistic patterns) that the pink pages were written before the typescript's white pages, and therefore that they represent O'Brien's earliest conception of the novel.
