About this Item: 1992. Condition: Near Fine. A collection of 36 Typescript and Holograph Poems from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Franz Wright, with nearly half of the poems Signed or Inscribed, along with five Autographed and Typed Letters Signed to a fellow poet. Wright, the son of poet James Wright, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for his book, Walking to Martha's Vineyard, matching his father who won the prize in the same category in 1972, and making them the only father and son to accomplish this feat. The poems in this collection were written between 1985 and 1992 during which time Franz Wright published several books. A great many of these poems were published in those books but appear here in an earlier form with alternate verses and different titles. Several of the poems could not be identified and may be unpublished. The accompanying letters sent to his correspondent are surprisingly genial and optimistic considering Wright's tendency toward darker themes in his work. In them, he encourages his correspondent's writing, speaks about his own love of poetry, comments on one of his father's poems, and talks about his recently established sobriety. Nearly all the poems and letters are in near fine or better condition though a few have a bit of wear to their extremities. A remarkable collection of poetry and letters from this Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, giving new insight into his life, his relationships, and his writing process. Letters: 1. ALS, 1p., [No place]: August 28, 1985. Mentions a poem he sent ("[Winter Entries] From a Winter Notebook"), a poem he's enclosing ("Entry in an Unknown Hand"), going to see Martha McCollough's exhibition, and that he is "making great progress this week with book." 2. ALS, 1p., [No place]: December 7, 1985. Comments about improvements in his correspondent's poems and offers sympathy for the latter's not getting a response from Charles Simic and Allan Tate for an anthology he's assembling. 3. APcS, [No place]: November 5, 1986. An invitation for his correspondent to come to New England for a reading at Emerson College. 4. ALS, 2pp., [No place]: November 2, 1989. Some comments about being sober for two months: "feel pretty good --- much less fearful & happy to accept what support I can get, in the form of AA & psychiatry," and also the transforming effect it had on his longtime companion and collaborator, the artist Martha McCollough. 5. TLS, 2pp., [No place]: December 5, 1992. A jam-packed letter revolving around his correspondent's impending fatherhood. The letter begins with a few lines from Wright's father's poem, "Father"; an anecdote about an inscription from his father, "Dear Franz: Keep your pecker up! / Love Dad"; his own poem, "The Gratitude"; a pep talk about his correspondent being a great guy and future dad; comments about how poetry allows one to "say things impossible to say. In fact, you sometimes end up saying far more than you ever realize"; and a plea to his correspondent's wife that Wright is "not ALWAYS the lunatic adulterer or manic writing award recipient." Also a brief note in Wright's hand at the bottom of the page mentions the arrival of his latest book, The Night World and the Word Night. Poems: 6. "After Rimbaud," typescript, 1p. 7. "A Day Comes," typescript, 1p., with two corrections. 8. "A Day Comes," typescript, 1p., with one correction. 9. "Daylight worn thin.," typescript, 1p. 10. "[Coordinates] Waking up at an improbable hour.," typescript, 1p., Inscribed with a brief note. 11. "Entry in an Unknown Hand," typescript, 1p., the earliest version. 12. "Entry in an Unknown Hand," typescript, 1p., early and notably shorter version. 13. "Entry in an Unknown Hand," typescript, 2pp., with two holograph notes on both pages, one Signed. 14. "Going North to Winter," typescript, 1p. 15. "How did I get here?.," typescript, 1p., Signed. 16. "I," typescript, 1p. 17. "I keep strange hours.," typescript, 1p., Signed. 18. "Midnight Postscript," typescript, 1p., Signed. 19. "My Work," typescript, 1p. 20. "Midnight," type. Seller Inventory # 339160
