Series 2
Writings by Grennan, 1962-2016
Boxes 3 - 53 and 82-92; BV 1 - 3

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of writings by Eamon Grennan from 1962-2016, including poetry, prose, notebooks, lecture and teaching files, and scripts. The poetry series contains collected works, as well as uncollected, some of which were published in journals and magazines. Over the years, Grennan also maintained files containing drafts of his poems which he arranged in chronological order. This original arrangement has been preserved, though items may duplicate drafts found elsewhere in the subseries.

The series also contains Grennan's prose writings such as essays, articles, reviews, short stories, and papers written while he was a graduate student at Harvard. Also present in the series are notebooks that contain both poetry and prose, drafts of invited lectures, material relating to poetry readings given by Grennan, and files from courses that he taught. Lecture files include drafts as well as reference material. Teaching files may contain syllabi, notes and assignments. Scripts in the series are all play scripts and those files contain drafts as well as source material and promotional material for performances.

Arrangement Note

Organized into six subseries: (2.1) Poetry, (2.2) Prose, (2.3) Notebooks, (2.4) Lectures, readings, and teaching files, (2.5) Translations, and (2.6) Scripts.
