Abstract:

The bulk of the collection is manuscripts by Sissman, mostly poems, but also prose including essays, drafts, notes, fragments of stories and novels, and a few speeches. Includes a typescript with annotations, the galley proofs, and the page proofs of Hello, Darkness: The Collected Poems of L.E. Sissman, a posthumous collection selected and arranged by Peter Davison; as well as printer's copies and proofs of his earlier works. Also contains 5 boxes of correspondence, both personal and professional. Correspondents include Anthony Hecht, Howard Moss, Stanley Moss, Edward A. Muir, and Kurt Vonnegut. Most of the letters, which include correspondence with other poets and publishers, and fan mail, pertain to his poetry, but 68 letters to his parents written between 1944 and 1959 discuss his student days at Harvard and early days in advertising. Third party correspondence concerns his poetry. Also a few miscellaneous manuscripts by others and printed copies of his poems.
