Biography

Lawrence Ferlinghetti, American poet, editor, and publisher, was born in March of 1919 in Yonkers, N.Y., the son of Charles S. and Clemence Ferling. From 1920 to 1924, he lived in France with his aunt, and after their return to the U.S., was educated in New York, at the Riverside Country School (1927-28) and Bronxville Public School (1929-33). Ferlinghetti attended high school at Mount Hermon School in Greenfield, Mass. (1933-37), then received a B.A. in Journalism from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 1941, his M.A. in Literature from Columbia University in 1948, and his Doctorat de l'Université from The Sorbonne, Paris in 1949. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1941 to 1945, and attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Ferlinghetti married Selden Kirby-Smith in 1951, and has two children, Julie and Lorenzo.
Ferlinghetti moved to San Francisco in the early 1950s, and in 1953, after a short period as a French literature teacher, he founded City Lights Books with Peter L. Martin. In 1955, City Lights Publishing initiated the Pocket Poets Series with a collection of Ferlinghetti's own poems, Pictures of the Gone World. This was followed by publication of works by Kenneth Patchen, Kenneth Rexroth, and in 1957, Allen Ginsberg's Howl. City Lights' distribution of this controversial work provoked an obscenity trial which attracted international attention. In his struggle against censorship, Ferlinghetti became a public figure representing the San Francisco literary renaissance and the Beat Poet's movement.
Throughout his career Ferlinghetti has championed the avant-garde, opting for social engagement and literary experimentation in both his own work and that of the authors he publishes. His own poetry reflects the raw, uninhibited style common to the Beat generation. Ferlinghetti's best-known volume is A Coney Island of the Mind (New Directions, 1958); other poetry collections include Starting from San Francisco (1961), The Secret Meaning of Things (1969), Open Eye, Open Heart (1973), Landscapes of Living and Dying (1979), Endless life: The Selected Poems (1981), Over all the Obscene Boundaries (1984), and These are My Rivers (1995).
Ferlinghetti is also the author of two novels, Her (1960) and Love in the Days of Rage (1988), as well as two collections of experimental theater pieces. His interest in oral poetry has made him a favorite of audiences world-wide; several examples of his public readings and jazz/poetry collaborations are available commercially. A lifelong interest in painting in recent years has led to gallery showings of his works and the publication of a collection of drawings, Leaves of Life: Fifty Drawings from the Model (1984). In 1988, Ferlinghetti, in collaboration with Nancy J. Peters, published Literary San Francisco: A Pictorial History from the Beginning to the Present.
In the Dictionary of Literary Biography, biographer Larry Smith sums up Ferlinghetti's achievements: "as a poet and publisher, as a catalyst for cultural and literary innovation for several generations, [Ferlinghetti] is one of the key forces of contemporary writing. He extends the significance of the Beat perspective by the engaged stance of his life and work and by the powerful and popular art he has wrought."

Scope and Content

The Lawrence Ferlinghetti Papers, 1919-2003, contain a wealth of manuscript material, some of it never published, spanning the entire creative output of this San Francisco-based poet and publisher. The bulk of the collection dates from the 1970s to 1980s, but also includes Ferlinghetti's early prose works from 1948 to 1954, significant works from the late 1960s, and a variety of materials from 1990 to the present. These papers complement The Bancroft Library's other extensive holdings documenting the life and work of Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
The collection consists chiefly of literary manuscripts, including poetry and prose, both fiction and non-fiction, in various stages of completion. Bill Morgan's, Lawrence Ferlinghetti: A Comprehensive Bibliography to 1980 (New York, 1982) was used to establish titles and publication dates. All titles in this collection have been indexed under final title, as well as all variant and working titles. Among Ferlinghetti's writings are also numerous journals and notebooks documenting Ferlinghetti's travels from 1947 to 1994, along with a small amount of original art work.
An extensive array of correspondence, both family and professional, includes letters from fans, professional colleagues, and literary agents. Ferlinghetti's personal papers provide information about his early life and evolving career. This is expanded in his professional papers, which includes significant materials documenting his professional contributions and the impact of his work on society. Finally, the collection includes numerous clipping files which span the full range of Ferlinghetti's career.

An extensive series illustrating Ferlinghetti's versatility as a writer. Ferlinghetti has published four novels, four works of non-fiction, and the subjects of his articles vary from a discussion of Giacometti sculpture to "A Poet's View of the Super Bowl". Includes Ferlinghetti's first published pieces: book reviews and essays on the San Francisco art scene featured in the San Francisco Chronicle. Ferlinghetti's travel journals and notebooks often contain early drafts of individual poems.
All items included in fiction, non-fiction, plays, radio plays, short stories, movie scenarios, essays/articles, and translations have been indexed under final, variant, and working titles.

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

Arranged chronologically or alphabetically, as appropriate.
Divided into 4 sub-series: Royalties, Permissions, and Business Miscellany; Biographical Material; Relating to Works of Lawrence Ferlinghetti; and Poster Collection. Royalties, permissions, and business records are arranged by matter of importance. Biographical material has been further sub-divided into: Interviews, Articles about Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Awards and Tributes, Printed Biographical Information, and Clippings, all arranged chronologically. Relating to Works of Lawrence Ferlinghetti has been further sub-divided into: Poetry Readings, Anthologies, Reviews, Musical Adaptations, Dramatic Interpretations, Translations, Catalogs, and Miscellaneous and Printed Materials. Poetry readings, anthologies, and reviews are arranged chronologically; musical works adapted by Ferlinghetti are listed first, chronologically, followed by works adapted by others, listed alphabetically by title of poem; dramatic interpretations are arranged alphabetically by title. Translations of Ferlinghetti's works are arranged alphabetically by language, and then listed chronologically, by title; catalogs, and miscellaneous and printed materials are arranged alphabetically by title. The poster collection is arranged chronologically, by date of work, in the case of poetry broadsides, or by date of event, as for poetry readings.
Includes a significant range of materials that illustrate Ferlinghetti's professional contributions and artistic affiliations. Interviews, articles about Ferlinghetti, and a chronology of poetry readings spanning 35 years, provide insight to Ferlinghetti's poetic themes and the impact of his work on society in the last half of this century. Musical adaptations, dramatic interpretations, and translations also illustrate Ferlinghetti's broad appeal. Musical and dramatic interpretations span 30 years, with eight languages represented, including Finnish and Yugoslavian. The poster collection, consisting of over 120 items, documents many of Ferlinghetti's public appearances, but also includes broadsides announcing public appearances by Ferlinghetti's friends and members of his artistic circle.
