Subseries 1.1
Writings by Dugan, circa 1940s-2001
Boxes 1-13, OP1-4, BV1

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of writings by Alan Dugan and primarily contains handwritten and typescript poem drafts, as well as drafts and page proofs of his published collections, including Poems (1961), Poems 2 (1963), Poems 3 (1967), Poems 4 (1974), Poems 5 (1983), Poems 6 (1989), and Poems 7 (2001). Poems Seven: New and Complete Poetry, a compilation of all seven of these individual collections, was released in 2001. Dugan's poems deal with a wide range of subjects, including observations of daily life, commentary on political events, observations of nature and animals, Latin American travel, the nature and use of art, classical and biblical themes, abstract themes, and other topics. War is a major subject of Dugan's poetry; a number of poems from the 1940s discuss Dugan's service in World War II, and there are a number of other poems commenting on the Vietnam War. There are also a large number of notebooks in this subseries containing draft writings and doodles.

Many of Dugan's handwritten poems have titles that may differ from published versions. Dugan titled many of his poems as "Note," "Poem," "Sonnet," and "Untitled Poem," and these works have been listed with their respective first lines for clarity. There are also several folders of unidentified writings, which have missing or illegible titles.
