CREELEY, ROBERT WHITE (1926-2005)
American poet and academic, most associated with the Black Mountain poets although his verse aesthetic diverged from that genre.
TLS – Typewritten Letter Signed, one page, August 1981, written to fellow American poet ALICE NOTLEY (1945- ). Accompanied by original mailing envelope (from Buffalo).
Creeley authored more than 60 books and was a distinguished professor with University at Buffalo.
NOTLEY was considered, by some, to be the greatest disciple of Frank O’Hara. She has long written in narrative and epic and genre-bending modes to discover new ways to explore the nature of the self and the social and cultural importance of disobedience. The artist Rudy Burckhardt once wrote that Notley may be “our present-day Homer.”
