Abstract:

The archive consists of correspondence, writings, personal papers, photographs, audiovisual material and memorabilia documenting Gombrowicz's life and literary activity chiefly during the last two decades of his life (1949-69).

Series I, Correspondence, contains personal and professional correspondence. There is correspondence with family, Polish and European literary and cultural figures, other Polish emigres, and Latin American friends and writers. There is considerable correspondence with editors and publishers, including Jerzy Giedroyc, the Polish editor of Gombrowicz's works. Other Polish correspondents include Tadeusz Breza, Zofia Chadzynska, Jozef Czapski, Maria Dabrowska, Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz, Constantin Jelenski, Tadeusz Kantor, Maria Szczepanska Kuncewiczowa, Czeslaw Milosz, Zygmunt Mycielski, Artur Sandauer, Leopold Tyrmand, Kaimierz Wierzynski, and Jozef Wittlin.

Series II, Writings of Gombrowicz, consists of novels, plays, shorter works, autobiographical writings, and other writings. There are drafts and printed versions of shorter works, including stories, articles, interviews, and open letters. There are drafts of more significant works, including: holograph and typescript drafts of the novel Kosmos; holograph and typescript drafts of the play Operetka; drafts, with many fragments, of different Dziennik (diaries); and a typescript draft of Guide de la philosophie en six heures un quart.

Series III, Adaptations by Others of Gombrowicz's Works, contains theater scenarios, film treatments, and other material based on works by Gombrowicz. Series IV, Theater Programs, contains programs for theatrical adaptations of Gombrowicz's works. Series V, Writings of Others About Gombrowicz, contains articles, bibliographies, published letters, transcripts for radio broadcasts, theses and student papers, and material related to a special issue of the journal L'Herne, devoted to Gombrowicz, edited by Constantin Jelenski and Dominique de Roux.

Series VI, Commemorative Works and Activities, consists of obituaries and tributes issued in the months following Gombrowicz's death, and correspondence, organizational records, and printed material from commemorative events dating from the late 1980s. Series VII, Audiovisual Materials, includes both audio recordings and moving image media. Audio recordings encompass recordings of programs about Gombrowicz and adaptations of his works for radio. Moving image media includes amateur films, documentaries about Gombrowicz, and theater and film productions of Gombrowicz's works.

Series VIII and IX consist of Photographs and Personal Papers respectively. There are photograph albums of Gombrowicz for periods in Poland, Argentina, and Europe, and later photographs of theater and film productions and commemorative events. Personal Papers includes personal documents, family papers relating to the history of the Gombrowicz family, and a small number of writings by family members. Series X, Rita Gombrowicz Papers, contains material gathered by Gombrowicz's wife following his death, and is organized into subseries for correspondence, research files, writings, clippings, and printed ephemera.

Series XI, Clippings, consists of printed material, including journals, book catalogues, printed ephemera, and clippings of articles related directly to Gombrowicz and his work. Series XII, Posters, includes posters for plays, exhibitions, films, and festivals by Polish poster artists Franciszek Starowieyski, Jan Lenica, Waldemar Swierzy, Wiktor Sadowski, Wieslaw Walkuski, and others.
