Scope and Content of Collection

Papers of Paul Blackburn, an American poet, translator, editor, and literary agent. Over half of the collection is composed of photographs and correspondence which document his life and literary career. The correspondence relates to both personal and professional matters, and consists not only of letters received by Blackburn, but also of many copies of his own letters. Among the prominent correspondents are Julio Cortazar, Charles Reznikoff, Ezra Pound, Octavio Paz, Charles Olson, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Creeley, and Blackburn's mother, Frances Frost. The collection also includes manuscripts and typescripts of poems, prose and translations dated from the 1940s through the early 1970s and materials relating to the business aspects of Blackburn's career, including contracts, reading schedules and some business correspondence. Although some family documents such as photographs date from the early 1900s, the bulk of the materials relate directly to Blackburn's life and date from the early 1940s to the early 1970s.
Separation Note: Books, journals and audiorecordings received in the 1973 accession of the Paul Blackburn Papers have been separated from the collection and added elsewhere to the library's holdings. To identify audiorecordings he owned, conduct an author search in ROGER on the term "Blackburn, Paul former owner," then click on the "Limit the Search" button, and in the "Material type" box select "Records/Tapes" from the pull-down menu.
The collection is arranged in eight series: 1) ORIGINAL POETRY, 2) TRANSLATIONS, 3) PROSE AND INTERVIEWS, 4) POETRY/TRANSLATION BUSINESS, 5) PERSONAL AND FAMILY MATERIALS, 6) EPHEMERA, 7) CORRESPONDENCE, and 8) MISCELLANEOUS MATERIALS.

Biography

Born in Saint Albans, Vermont, November 24th, 1926, Paul Blackburn influenced contemporary literature through his poetry, translations and the encouragement and patronage he offered to fellow poets. His parents, William Gordon Blackburn and Frances Frost (also a poet, novelist and author of children's books) separated when Blackburn was three. He was cared for primarily by his maternal grandparents until he was fourteen, when his mother took him back to New York City to live with her in Greenwich Village. He began writing poetry in his late teens under her encouragement.
Just after enrolling in New York University in 1945, Blackburn joined the army in hopes of being sent overseas. The war ended shortly thereafter however, and he served as a laboratory technician in Colorado. In 1947 he returned to NYU, and subsequently transferred to the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1949, graduating in 1950.
It was during his college years that Blackburn first came under the influence of Ezra Pound. While at the University of Wisconsin he began corresponding with Pound, and hitchhiked to Washington D.C. several times to visit him at St. Elizabeth's Hospital. Via Pound, he came in to contact with Cid Corman, Robert Creeley, Charles Olson, Joel Oppenheimer and Jonathan Williams. Through this contact came an ancillary involvement with the first two issues of Olson's magazine, Black Mountain Review, and consequent, the inexact [erroneous?] inclusion of Blackburn in the Black Mountain school of poets. Blackburn neither attended the college, not taught there, and as Edith Jarolim points out in her intoduction to the Collected Poems, "Blackburn always opposed the division of poets into schools and did not like the role of Black Mountain poet into which he was cast by Donald Allen's anthology The New American Poetry (1960). He embraced all types of poetry, citing the value of "all work, if you work 'em right." (E. Jarolim in The Collected Poems of Paul Blackburn, 1985)
It was Pound as well, who pointed Blackburn in the direction of Provencal poetry, and he studied the languages of Provence while at the University of Wisconsin. His work on Provencal translations intensified following the 1953 publication of a slim selection of the translations and with a Fulbright Fellowship in 1954 to study Provencal language and literature in France. This vein of his work continued for the rest of his life and didn't see full publication until after his death because he was never quite satisfied with it.
Blackburn was also well-known for his translations from Spanish of the epic Poem for the Cid, Lorca, a book of Pablo Picasso's poems, and of contemporary South American writers such as Octavio Paz and his friend Julio Cortazar.
In addition to the poetry and the translating, Blackburn played an important part in the poetry community, helping fledgling poets develop, and providing emotional support and opportunities to read for both unknown and established writers at the various reading series with which was involved. He was central in organizing readings that offered work from the Beats, the New York School, the Deep Image Poets, and the Black Mountain Poets. Clayton Eshleman has written, "Many, not just a few, but many poets alive today are beholden to him for a basic artistic kindness, for readings, yes, and for advice, but more humanly for a kind of comradeship that very few poets are willing to give." The readings he ran were progenitors to the Poetry Project at St. Marks Church on the Bowery.
Up until the mid-1960s Blackburn supported himself by various print-shop, editorial and translating jobs, including a short stint as poetry editor of The Nation. Some of his early jobs included working in-house on encyclopedias, and writing free lance reviews. By the mid-1960s Blackburn began receiving offers of teaching positions, and in 1965, 1966 and 1967 he directed workshops at the Aspen Writers' Conference. He was Poet-In-Residence at City College of New York in 1966-67. A Guggenheim Fellowship in 1967 enabled him to return to Europe to work on his translations and poetry. Upon returning to the U.S. he supported himself through reading tours and teaching at the State University of New York at Cortland.
Blackburn was married three times: to Winifred Grey McCarthy from 1954 to 1958; Sara Golden from 1963 to 1967; and to Joan Diane Miller in 1968, with whom he had his son, Carlos T. Blackburn died in 1971 of the esophageal cancer.
During his lifetime Blackburn published thirteen books of poetry: The Dissolving Fabric (1955), Brooklyn Manhattan Transit: A Bouquet for Flatbush (1960), The Nets (1961), 16 Sloppy Haiku and a Lyric for Robert Reardon (1966), Sing Song (1966), The Reardon Poems (1967), The Cities (1967), In. On. Or About the Premises (1968), Two New Poems (1969), The Assassination of President McKinley, Three Dreams and an Old Poem, Gin: Four Journal Pieces (1970), and The Journals: Blue Mounds Entries (1971); and 5 major works of translations: Proensa (1953), Poem of the El Cid (1996), Julio Cortazar's End of the Game and Other Stories (1967), Pablo Picasso' s Hunk of Skin and Julio Cortazar's Cronopios and Famas.
Nine other books of poetry were published posthumously: Early Selected y Mas: Poems 1949-1966 (1972), The Journals, Halfway Down the Coast (1975), By Ear (1978), Against the Silences (1980), The Selection Of Heaven (1980), The Collected Poems of Paul Blackburn (1985), The Selected Poems(?) and The Parallel Voyages (1987); and 2 works of translation: Proensa: An Anthology of Troubador Poetry (1978) and Lorca/Blackburn: Poems of Federico Garcia Lorca Chosen by Paul Blackburn (1979).
