Papers of American poet and teacher Rae Armantrout, including personal and professional correspondence, notebooks, and typescript drafts of poems and manuscripts. The collection also contains notebooks and lecture notes from literature courses taught by Armantrout from 2000 through 2008.

Rae Armantrout was born on April 12, 1947, in Vallejo, California, and grew up in San Diego. Armantrout studied literature at UC Berkeley, where she received her bachelor's degree in 1970. She later received her master's degree in creative writing from San Francisco State University in 1975. Armantrout is one of the founding members of the West Coast "Language Poetry" movement and worked with other Language poets including Bob Perelman, Ron Silliman, and Lyn Hejinian. Armantrout and her husband Chuck Korkegian returned to San Diego in the early 1980s.

Armantrout's publications include Extremities (1978), Made to Seem (1995), Veil (2001), Up to Speed (2004), Next Life (2007), and Versed (2009). Her poems have appeared in numerous anthologies including American Hybrid: A Norton Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, Language Poetries, The Oxford Book of American Poetry, and The Best American Poetry of 1988, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2007, and 2008.

Armantrout has been a finalist for the PEN USA Award in 2001 and 2004, a 2008 Guggenheim Fellow in Poetry, and the 2008 winner of the Frederick Bock Poetry Prize. She is one of ten poets currently working on the project The Grand Piano: An Experiment In Collective Autobiography, which is a collaboration by ten writers identified with the rise of Language Poetry in San Francisco. Writing on the volumes began in 1998, with the first volume (of a proposed ten) being published in November 2006. For the past twenty years, Armantrout has taught in the Department of Literature at the University of California, San Diego.
