Abstract:

The papers document Garrett's literary career as an author of novels, short stories, poetry, and dramatic works (including filmscripts) and the tremendous influence he had as an English professor and an editor on an entire generation of writers, particularly in the South. Correspondence with numerous authors, publishers, and educators offers much information about the history of 20th-century Southern literature, publishing, and literary education. The collection is divided into the Writings Series (with subseries of Writings by Garrett, Writings Edited by Garrett, Writings by Others, and Proofs); the Correspondence Series (with 5 subseries of alphabetically and chronologically arranged correspondence); the Audiovisual Material Series; and the Miscellaneous Papers Series (unprocessed).

The Alphabetical Correspondence Subseries: Group A contains letters from numerous contemporary American authors, among them Madison Smartt Bell, who wrote regarding the progress of his fiction, his experience with publishers and literary agents, and his interview with Garrett for PARIS REVIEW; and Fred Chappell, whose letters provide commentary on his own works THE INKLING and DAGON as well as praise for Garrett's DEATH OF THE FOX, THE MAGIC STRIPTEASE, and WELCOME TO THE MEDICINE SHOW. The Writings by Others Subseries contains Bell's interview with Garrett, in which Garrett discusses his writing process, and critical essays by Fred Chappell (including one on Garrett's THE STRANGER IN THE MIRROR and one on the work of Sylvia Wilkinson). The Proofs Subseries contains a proof of Reynolds Price's COLLECTED STORIES, with brief comments by Garrett.

The addition (98-356) (5500 items, 15 linear feet; dated 1980-1998 [bulk 1995-1997]) consists of audiotapes of various authors, including Garrett, reading their works; a videocassette entitled "The Great Gatsby;" printed materials and writings, including published books, journals, drafts, and bound proofs; personal and business correspondence; and manuscripts submitted to Garrett for comment.

The addition (99-268) (1 item, .3 linear feet; dated [ca. 1996]) consists of a photocopied typescript of Garrett's novel THE KING OF BABYLON SHALL NOT COME AGAINST YOU with handwritten annotations.

The addition (99-379) (450 items, .6 linear feet; dated 1956-1972)primarily comprises incoming correspondence, chiefly professional; a number of writings are interfiled with or attached to letters. Also included are miscellaneous printed materials.

The addition (00-085) (9100 items; dated 1964-1999) contains additional manuscripts related to THE KING OF BABYLON SHALL NOT COME AGAINST YOU. There are audiotapes of readings by Garrett and others, literary correspondence, and clippings.

The addition (00-303) (15 items, 1 linear foot; dated 1995-2000) includes page proofs and a revised typescript of THE KING OF BABYLON SHALL NOT COME AGAINST YOU; a revised typescript of ENTERED FROM THE SUN; eleven cassettes of readings and lectures, presumably by Garrett; and a videotape entitled "Writers-East of the Blue Ridge" on which he is interviewed.

Addition (02-034) (1 item, 1 lin. ft.; dated 2002) comprises an uncorrected page proof, with color cover, for Garrett's GOING TO SEE THE ELEPHANT: PIECES OF A WRITING LIFE. This accession is unprocessed and is not represented in the finding aid for the collection.
