Papers of Susan Howe, American poet. The collection consists of Howe's literary correspondence, poetry manuscripts, notes and typescripts for readings and talks, personal and working journals, recordings, research files, and art/poetry installations dating from the 1950s to 2002.

Susan Howe (b. 1937) is an American artist, poet, and writer. Howe's poetry evolved from her painting and drawing career, and her first major publication was the 1974 edition of Hinge Picture (New York, Telephone Books). Closely associated with the late 1970s and 1980s Language Poets' movement, Susan Howe's poetry and scholarship are most accurately characterized as language-based and experimental. Howe's early training and careers in drama and visual arts (she was an actress and an assistant stage designer at the Gate Theatre in Dublin and graduated from the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts in 1961) are reflected in the dramatic sections of her poems, as in The Liberties, and in her attention to the visual aspect of the page. Her mother, Mary Manning Howe, an Irish actress and playwright, and her father, Mark DeWolfe Howe, a Harvard Law School professor, each appear as influences in her poetry. Much of the subject and location of her work--her close affinity with Emily Dickinson and early American history, as in Articulation of Sound Forms in Time, her interest in Jonathan Swift's Irish residency in The Liberties--reveals Howe's Irish ancestry combined with hard-biting New England literary heritage and politics.

Howe's activities as a lecturer and reader are numerous. In the late 1970s, Howe produced a radio talk show for WBAI radio in which she interviewed and hosted a wide range of American and European poets. In 1980 Howe received the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award for Secret History of the Dividing Line and again in 1987 for My Emily Dickinson. In 1985 she was one of ten American poets at the New Poetics Colloquium in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she returned in 1987 as visiting artist-in-residence. Howe was one of five American poets at the Rencontres Internationales de Po├ęsie Contemporaine in Tarascon, France, 1988, as well as a Butler fellow in the Department of English at SUNY, Buffalo, also in 1988.

In 1991, Howe was appointed as a full professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where she has taught numerous classes on American literature and creative writing. She has received two American Book Awards from the Before Columbus Foundation and in 1996 she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. In 1999 she was elected to the Academy of American Poets.

While Howe has continued to produce books of poetry and literary-historical criticism, her work crosses the boundaries of genres: her poetry stems from her archival research in literary history, while her literary scholarship is poetic and personal. For example, her 1993 book, The Birth-mark: Unsettling the Wilderness in American Literary History (named an "International Book of the Year" by the Times Literary Supplement), is a collection of scholarly essays on literary history. Nonetheless, the essays contain personal anecdotes, marginal quotations from authors and poetic observations on the nature of literary historical scholarship. Similarly, in her book, The Non-Conformist's Memorial (1993), Howe interweaves the marginal words of literary figures such as Melville and Shelley with her own poetic lines.

The collection consists of Susan Howe's literary correspondence, poetry manuscripts, notes and typescripts for readings and talks, personal and working journals, recordings, research files, and art/poetry installations dating from the 1950s to 2002. The collection is arranged in three accessions: an accession processed in 1991, an accession processed in 2003, and a small additional accession of manuscripts for Coracle Press Publications acquired in 2009.

Accession Processed in 1991: Correspondence, poetry manuscripts, typescripts and notes for readings and talks, personal and working journals, art/poetry installations and over 100 tape recordings from Howe's WBAI Radio program, "Poetry." Most of the material dates from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s. It includes a few personal journals and some earlier correspondence from Howe's family: World War II letters from Howe's father, Harvard Law School professor Mark DeWolfe Howe; personal journals kept by Howe while visiting Ireland in the 1950s; and a scrapbook documenting Howe's early career as an actress. The accession contains working manuscripts of Howe's books Articulation of Sound Forms in Time (1986), Cabbage Gardens (1979), Defenestration of Prague (1983), Hinge Picture (1974), The Liberties (1980), My Emily Dickinson (1985), Pythagorean Silence (1982), and Secret History of the Dividing Line (1978), along with other poetic experiments, and extensive correspondence from poets and critics: Lyn Hejinian, George Butterick, John Taggart, Ian Hamilton Finlay, among others.

The 1991 accession is arranged in five series: 1) CORRESPONDENCE, 2) WRITINGS, 3) PHOTOGRAPHS AND EPHEMERA, 4) TAPE RECORDINGS and 5) ORIGINALS OF PRESERVATION PHOTOCOPIES.

Accession processed in 2003: Correspondence, notebooks, manuscripts, teaching materials, and early biographical materials, as well as a small amount of material relating to Howe's second husband, sculptor David von Schlegell (1920-1992). The bulk of the accession dates from the 1990s and contains drafts, manuscripts, production materials, and translations of Howe's work from this period, published in Singularities (1990), The Non-Conformist's Memorial (1993), and Pierce Arrow (1999), though some early drafts of this work are contained in notebooks dating from 1972 to 1997. There is a significant amount of research material, such as photocopies from archival documents and books, often marked with Howe's marginal notes, both for her written work and for her work as a professor of literature at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

The 2003 accession is arranged in ten series: 6) CORRESPONDENCE, 7) NOTEBOOKS, 8) WRITINGS, 9) VISUAL MATERIALS, 10) TEACHING, 11) INTERVIEWS AND CRITICISM, 12) WBAI RADIO MATERIALS, 13) DAVID VON SCHLEGELL MATERIALS, 14) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS AND EPHEMERA, and 15) ORIGINALS OF PRESERVATION PHOTOCOPIES.

Manuscripts for Coracle Press Publications: Correspondence, manuscripts, and book production materials dating from 2001 to 2002. Arranged in two series: 16) BEDHANGINGS II and 17) KIDNAPPED.

CORRESPONDENCE

Scope and Content of Series

Series 1) CORRESPONDENCE: Several dozen letters from each of a few notable correspondents, specifically George Butterick, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Lyn Hejinian, and John Taggart, but notably lacks letters from other poets known to be among her circle of colleagues and peers. There are a few novelty letters from Charles Reznikoff, May Sarton, Orson Welles, and John Wheelock, among others, relating to their involvement in Howe's 1970s WBAI Radio program, "Poetry." A photocopy of Susan Howe's letter to Richard Sewell containing her speculations about Emily Dickinson's "Master Letters" and Sewell's response, along with some brief correspondence with Ralph Franklin, contribute to Dickinson scholarship.

WRITINGS

Scope and Content of Series

Series 2) WRITINGS is arranged into four subseries: A) Working Manuscripts, B) Readings and Talks, C) Journals, and D) Installations. These are arranged alphabetically with the exception of the sketchbook working journals, which are arranged chronologically.

A) Working Manuscripts: The contents of individual files were maintained in the order in which they were received, though the folders were alphabetized by the title of the predominant work. Howe often worked on more than one manuscript at the same time. For example, Defenestration of Prague and Liberties manuscripts are found in the same folder, as are manuscripts of Chanting at the Crystal Sea and Secret History of the Dividing Line.

B) Readings and Talks: Notes for talks at New College, San Jose State's 1986 Emily Dickinson/HD conference, the Duncan Memorial, and other events dating from the mid to late 1980s.

C) Journals: Arranged into two categories of "Diaries/Personal Journals" and "Working Journals." The "Diaries/Personals Journals" includes some mid-1950s journals kept by Howe during trips to Ireland that document the establishment of her ongoing relationship and pilgrimages to Ireland, along with various working notebooks containing notes for poetry, personal commentary and other daily notation. The "Working Journals" comprise a collection of working poetry sketchbooks dating from 1974-1988 that illustrate Howe's interest in the relationships between poetry and visual arts.

D) Installations: Work files, exhibition notes, and photographs of some of Howe's installation exhibitions.

TAPE RECORDINGS

Scope and Content of Series

Series 4) TAPE RECORDINGS: Selections from Howe's late 1970s radio program "Poetry." Recordings document interviews and readings with important experimental poets, including: Bruce Andrews and Charles Bernstein discussing their serial L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, Bernadette Mayer, Ron Padgett, Robert Creeley, Lyn Hejinian, and Robert Lax. Memorial readings for R.D. Laing and John Wheelright, as well as readings by May Sarton, Helen Adam, John Hall Wheelock, and some WBAI Radio archive tapes of readings by Jack Spicer, George Oppen, Charles Reznikoff, and Charles Olson locate the contemporary poets in this series within a poetic tradition. A discussion with William Eric Williams concerning his relationship with his father and their home life provides important information for William Carlos Williams scholarship. These tapes can be referenced through the ANP Tapes Listening Series, ANP SPL-1014 through ANP SPL-1113. See also Series 12.
