Abstract:

The Works Series is divided into literary and musical works. Among the literary works are a number of notebooks containing drafts of numerous short stories and essays, as well as three typescripts of The Sheltering Sky, and several fables and stories translated by Bowles, including "A Hundred Camels in the Courtyard," "M'hashish," and "The Hyena." Musical materials include several sonatas for various instruments, Congo, the Picnic Cantata, and music written to accompany works by Jane Bowles and Tennessee Williams. Both the translation of Frederico Lorca's Yerma, which Bowles wrote as the libretto for an opera, and the musical score for said opera are also present.

The Correspondence Series, made up of mostly personal communications, includes letters from Bowles to family, friends, and acquaintances, Jane Bowles, James Purdy, Tennessee Williams, and others. Incoming correspondence includes letters from Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, Brion Gysin, Alan Sillitoe, Virgil Thomson, as well as others. Third-party correspondence is made up of letters between people associated with Bowles, and generally regarding him or his work.

The small Personal Papers series contains financial papers, including bank statements, cancelled checks, and income tax returns, a few legal documents, including identity papers and memoranda of agreement, as well as assorted notes and lists.

The Works by other Authors Series contains holograph and typescript manuscripts by Andreas Brown, Oliver Evans, Charles Henri Ford, as well as other friends and acquaintances of Bowles.
