Series 1
Author files, circa 1935-1988

Scope and Content Note

The Author Files series contains manuscripts and typescripts of works, broadcast and film scripts, correspondence, and other materials related to individual authors whose work spans numerous decades. However, the primary decades represented in the series include the 1960s and 1970s. Many Beat poets, including Allen Ginsberg, Michael McClure, and Charles Bukowski, are represented, as are contemporary poets such as the Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney.

Highlights of the series include a typescript of Robert Bly's acceptance speech for the National Book Award; the first version of Charles Bukowski's film script Barfly, along with three subsequent versions; correspondence, typescripts, and interview notes written by or relating to William Burroughs; materials by William Everson; a corrected typescript of the poem "An Invocation" by Seamus Heaney; correspondence by and to Ted Hughes, as well as a signed manuscript of his poem "O Little Blood"; a revised typescript of Endecott and the Red Cross by Robert Lowell; typescripts of poems by Muriel Rukeyser; correspondence by and to Richard Wilbur; and finally, correspondence and typescripts by William Carlos Williams. The materials included in this series represent the breadth and depth of Danowski's collection and are supplemented by the photographs and printed materials contained in additional series. Some items in this series were found laid in books from the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library; if so, a print of the catalog record is included with the item.
