About this Item

Kenneth RexrothÕs handwritten diary written at his home in Santa Barbara, California. 26 pages, written on the backs of his old unused printed San Francisco personal stationery, over a four month period in 1969. The first page spells out his intentions: Òall my long life I have thought of keeping a diary, a narrative of public and private events, and all my fugitive speculations, drafts of poems, meaningful letters, the documentation of a life in its time.Ó The entries are show his life and are philosophical, literary, and reflective. He was shortly to marry the last of his four wives, poet Carol Tinker. RexrothÕs abiding interest in his natural surroundings is evident, as are his conflicted religious thoughts as well as his political ideas and his economic circumstances. Interspersed throughout the narrative are drafts of several poems he is composing. Bookseller Inventory # 14647J
