The papers contain correspondence, drafts of published and unpublished poetry and prose, journals, notes, translations, reviews and editorial work. Schwerner's readings and performances are represented by flyers, text, photographs, and audio and videorecordings. Also included are drafts of writings of others and subject files related his interest in Buddhism, and various biographical documents.

Armand Schwerner was born on May 11, 1927, in Antwerp, Belgium. His family immigrated to the United States in the mid-1930s, and settled in New York City. He attended Cornell University, where he published his first poems in the Cornell Review. Schwerner then attended Columbia University, earning a B.A. in 1950 and a M.A. in 1964. In 1964 he began teaching English at Staten Island Community College.

In the late 1950s, Schwerner published poems in small magazines. His first book of poetry, The Lightfall, appeared in 1963 from Jerome Rothenberg's Hawk's Well Press. During this period he also co-authored with Donald Kaplan a satiric prose book, The Doomsday Dictionary, published by Simon and Schuster in 1963.

In the mid-1960s, Schwerner began writing a long serial poem, "The Tablets," which was framed as translations of erratic texts on clay tablets from an extinct culture in the Near East. The first publications of "The Tablets" announced that these poems were "transmitted through Armand Schwerner," who, in turn, represented himself in a fictional form in the poem as the "scholar/translator." Numbered serially, the first eight "Tablets" were published by the Cummington Press in 1968 as The Tablets I-VIII, and a subsequent volume, The Tablets I-XV, was published by Grossman in 1971. Three subsequent collections of poems gathered expanded versions of "The Tablets," which finally culminated with a posthumous edition of 27 complete tablets, accompanied with journal notes and divigations, from the National Poetry Foundation at the University of Maine in 1999. The Tablets were also used in two theatrical productions, one eponymous staging by the Living Theater in their 1989-1990 repertory and another entitled Dragon Bond Rite, in 1995.

Schwerner's works of collected poetry also include If Personal (1968); Seaweed (1969); The Bacche Sonnets (1974); This Practice (1976); The Work, the Joy and the Triumph of the Will (1977); Sounds of the River Naranjana (1983); and Selected Shorter Poems (1999).

Schwerner was adept as a translator, concentrating on work from Native American texts, but he also produced a translation of Philoctetes by Sophocles, as well as an incomplete version of Dante's Inferno, which he was working on at the time of his death. Schwerner read his poetry at dozens of venues throughout his career, often collaborating with other artists or providing his own musical improvisations.

Schwerner died in February 1999.

The Armand Schwerner Papers document all stages of his life and intermingled activities as a poet, playwright, translator, performer and teacher. The papers contain manuscript and typescript drafts of Schwerner's prose and poetry, including his long serial poem The Tablets, published collected poetry and unpublished poems. Many of his activities as a performance artist, both in reading his own works and in collaboration with others, are represented by texts, instructions, photographs, film, audio and videorecordings. Also included are interviews with Schwerner; articles by others about his work; correspondence with family, editors, artists and other poets including Stephen Berg, Michael Heller, Toby Olson, and George Oppen; drafts of translations; editorial work; teaching materials; conference and meeting materials; prepublication writings of other poets; and research files related to Schwerner's interest in Buddhism and Akkadian and Sumerian texts. High school and college notebooks, papers and other materials document Schwerner's educational development and academic training.

The papers date from the late 1940s through material that was published posthumously in 1999. The papers are arranged in thirteen series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) WRITINGS BY SCHWERNER, 4) PERFORMANCES AND READINGS, 5) INTERVIEWS / CRITICISM, 6) TEACHING MATERIALS, 7) CONFERENCES AND MEETINGS, 8) WRITINGS OF OTHERS, 9) SUBJECT FILES, 10) MISCELLANEOUS MATERIALS, 11) PHOTOGRAPHS AND FILMS, 12) RECORDINGS, and 13) ORIGINALS OF PRESERVATION PHOTOCOPIES.

WRITINGS BY SCHWERNER

Scope and Content of Series

SERIES 3) WRITINGS BY SCHWERNER: Arranged in twelve subseries, with the main portion of the materials comprising poetry at various stages of textual development, including both published and unpublished work: A) School Papers, B) Journals, C) Notes, D) Published Poetry, E) The Tablets, F) Unpublished Poetry, 1950s-1960s, G) Unpublished Poetry, 1970s-1990s, H) Published Prose, I) Unpublished Prose, J) Translations, K) Reviews by Schwerner and L) Editorial Work.

A) School Papers: Primarily typescript drafts of essays on literary figures written during college and graduate school.

B) Journals: Intermittent entries by Schwerner into a wide variety of bound notebooks that often contain laid in quotes, newspaper clippings and notes. Undated journals located at the end of the subseries relate to projects or subjects. Arranged chronologically.

C) Notes: Loose sheets of paper and notecards with handwritten observations.

D) Published Poetry: Drafts of individual poems published in literary journals and in Schwerner's works of collected poetry. Drafts of poems comprising a collected work are arranged according to the table of contents of the work. Published poems appearing individually or in several collected works are associated with their work of first appearance. Arranged chronologically.

E) Tablets: Arranged first numerically by individual "Tablet" and then chronologically by grouping the material in order of its appearance in book form, beginning with the Cummington Press collection in 1968. Translations of "Tablets" appear at the end of the subseries.

F) Unpublished Poetry, 1950s-1960s: Manuscript and typescript drafts of Schwerner's unpublished poems written during this period. Some of the poems may have been published in literary journals. Arranged alphabetically by title.

G) Unpublished Poetry, 1970s-1990s: Drafts of poems written in the last decades of Schwerner's career.

H) Published Prose: Typescript drafts of The Doomsday Dictionary, drafts of journal articles, essays about "The Tablets" and Buddhism, and Schwerner's master's thesis on Wallace Stevens.

I) Unpublished Prose: Fiction, as well as introductions of poets and comments on their work. Of interest is Schwerner's short account of his poetical development entitled "Autobiographical Account of Poetical Development."

J) Translations: Drafts of poems and dramatic work ranging from his translation of Philoctetes by Sophocles to Buddhist and Native American texts, as well as an incomplete rendition of Dante's Inferno.

K) Reviews by Schwerner: Published and unpublished reviews of books or performance events.

L) Editorial: Material related to Shwerner's sporadic editorial projects, including work on The New Wilderness Letter and his production of study guides for literary works. The Quixote materials contain typescript submissions from Jerome Rothenberg, Robert Creeley, Denise Levertov, and others.
