Papers of Andrew Schelling, American poet, translator, editor, and teacher. The collection documents his career as a poet, essayist, editor, ecologist, translator of classical Indian poetry, and as a professor at Naropa University. Schelling's papers include correspondence, manuscripts, drafts, translations, teaching files, and photographs dating primarily from 1978-2012.

Poet and translator Andrew Crombie Schelling was born January 14, 1953 in Washington, D.C. He grew up in the Boston area and graduated from Lexington High School in 1970. After studying at the University of Rochester from 1971-1973, Schelling made his first trip to India and then transferred to the University of California, Santa Cruz. On the west coast, Schelling began studying poetry, Zen Buddhism, and Sanskrit. He received his B.A. in religious studies from UCSC in 1975, and then continued studying Sanskrit and Asian literature at UC Berkeley. Lacking departmental support for his proposed master's thesis on linguist and poet Jaime de Angulo, Schelling left UCB in 1980.

Schelling continued writing poetry and translating Sanskrit. With Benjamin Friedlander, he edited the poetry journals Jimmy & Lucy's House of "K" (1984-1991), Chumolungma Globe (1987) and Dark Ages Clasp the Daisy Root (1991-1994). He also worked at Moe's Books and Shambhala Booksellers in Berkeley, studied Zen with the Berkeley Zen Center and Green Gulch Farms, and taught Asian literature and ethnopoetics at Maybeck High School in Berkeley.

After two years of teaching as guest faculty at Naropa Institute's Summer Writing Program, Schelling was invited to join the faculty full time. He moved to Boulder, Colorado in 1990 to teach poetry for Naropa's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics and Sanskrit translation for the Religious Studies department. At Naropa, Schelling developed a concentration in translation, chaired the Writing and Poetics department from 1993-1996, and founded the Kavyayantra Press. His classes include poetry workshops, bioregional poetry, ethnopoetics, Indian poetry, contemplative traditions, and wilderness writing.

Schelling's published works include several books of poetry, two collections of essays, and translations from Sanskrit, Indian vernacular languages, and Arapaho. His book of Sanskrit translations, Dropping the Bow: Poems from Ancient India (1991), received the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award from the Academy of American Poets. Schelling also received two grants from the Wittner Bynner Foundation for Poetry and a Contemplative Practice Fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies. Schelling is noted for his use of bioregionalism and ecopoetics in his writing.

The Andrew Schelling Papers contain biographical information, correspondence, manuscript drafts, translations, teaching files, and photographs documenting the career of American poet and translator Andrew Schelling from 1978-2012.

Arranged in the following series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) WRITINGS BY SCHELLING, 4) COLLABORATIVE WRITINGS, 5) WRITINGS BY OTHERS, 6) TEACHING FILES and 7) PHOTOGRAPHS.

WRITINGS BY SCHELLING

Scope and Content of Series

Series 3) WRITINGS BY SCHELLING: Drafts, proofs, correspondence, notes, reviews and artwork relating to Schelling's published and unpublished writings. The series is divided into ten subseries: A) Poetry, B) Essays, C) Interviews, D) Reviews, E) Readings, Lectures and Panels, F) Translations, G) Editing, H) Other Writings, I) Journals and J) Notebooks.

Writings are arranged alphabetically by title. If more than one title was used for a published work, the additional titles are included in parentheses.

A) The Poetry subseries contains drafts, notes, and correspondence regarding poems, chapbooks, and books of poetry written by Schelling. Additional drafts of poetry can be found in the Journals and Notebooks subseries.

B) The Essays subseries includes notes, drafts, and correspondence pertaining to Schelling's essays, collections of essays, introductions and afterwords, and biographies. Additional versions of his essays can also be found in the Readings, Lectures and Panels subseries and in the TEACHING FILES series.

C) The Interviews subseries contains typescript interviews of poets Czeslaw Milosz, Philip Whalen, Sherwin Bitsui and Joanne Kyger by Schelling.

D) The Reviews subseries consists of reviews written by Schelling between 1982 and 2011 on poetry, translations, and musical works.

E) The Readings, Lectures and Panels subseries includes notes and drafts for presentations by Schelling at poetry readings, conferences, panels, lectures, and memorials from 1985-2012. Many of his talks were also published as essays, and additional versions may be found in the Essays subseries. Panels presented at Naropa Institute are included in this series, but class lecture notes from Naropa are located in the TEACHING FILES series.

F) The Translations subseries contains notes, drafts, correspondence, translation worksheets and reviews for Schelling's translations of classical Indian literature. His translations include ancient Sanskrit poetry, Isha Upanishad, Amarushataka, Gita Govinda, and the songs of Mirabai. Additional notes for his translations can be found in the Journals and Notebooks subseries.

G) The Editing subseries consists of correspondence, notes, drafts, proofs, proposals, permissions and artwork for publications edited by Schelling. These include two collections of poetry, The Oxford Anthology of Bhakti Literature and The Wisdom Anthology of North American Buddhist Poetry, and the journals Bombay Gin, Chumolungma Globe, Dark Ages Clasp the Daisy Root, and Jimmy and Lucy's House of "K."

H) The Other Writings subseries includes Schelling's description of a family oral history project, a short story, and some short prose writings.

I) The Journals subseries contains Schelling's journals for the years 1982-2001. Most are handwritten in bound blank books; a few typescripts are included. Some of the journals are titled. In addition to dated entries, the journals may also include notes; drafts of poems, essays, translations or correspondence; quotes; and descriptions of his travels.

J) The Notebooks subseries is comprised of Schelling's pocket notebooks from 1983-2001. Smaller in size and scope than the journals, they generally lack dated entries. A few have been titled; many of the notebooks are undated. Wire bound notebooks have been disbound. Notebooks with Schelling's teaching notes can be found in the TEACHING FILES series. Several photographs in the PHOTOGRAPHS series depict Schelling carrying a notebook in his shirt pocket.
