Abstract:

Consists of wide-ranging materials accumulated by Kunitz over a period of about seventy years.

The collection includes various manuscripts and galley proofs of books, poems, fiction, nonfiction, translations (books and individual poems), and college writings by Kunitz. The bulk of the collection is correspondence exchanged between Kunitz and members of his family, friends, fellow literati, publishers, editors, and literary journals and institutions. Some of the major literary figures represented are Louise Bogan, Elizabeth Bishop, Peter Davison, Louise Gluck, Denise Levertov, Robert (Cal) Lowell, Marianne Moore, Theodore Roethke, Michael Ryan, Anne Sexton, Allen Tate, Robert Penn Warren, and Richard Wilbur. There is also a good deal of correspondence with such institutions and corporations as the Academy of American Poets, the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, Columbia University, and the Atlantic Monthly Press.

The collection also contains papers (correspondence, documents, and printed materials) from the H.W. Wilson Company, where Kunitz worked as an editor (1928-1943), the United States Army (1943-1945), the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, Massachusetts (1968-1997), and the Library of Congress, where Kunitz served as the Poetry Consultant (1974-1976). Also found in the collection are some papers of others, including a poem entitled "The Gettysburg Address" by Robert Lowell and the book manuscripts that Kunitz chose while editor of the Yale Series of Younger Poets.

Also included in the Papers are teaching materials, travel files, documents, calendars, memorabilia, photos, annotated books, audiocassettes, and printed material. A small selection of additional material includes correspondence by Kunitz, primarily to Roger Skillings; correspondence of Skillings; three photographs of Kunitz and others; two copies of "Shankpainter" no. 16, Spring 1978, containing chapters from Kunitz' unfinished novel, "Hartrex"; and printed material relating to Kunitz. [Note that the Milberg Collection in the Rare Books Division holds printed books and materials by Kunitz.].

In addition, there are unprocessed materials that include correspondence, articles and interviews featuring Kunitz, printed material featuring Kunitz, manuscripts, and translations of poetry by others.
