Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Corman mss. IV, 1991-1998, consist mostly of letters from poet, translator and editor Cid Corman, 1924-2004, to poet and publisher Darrin Daniel. They relate in part to the publication of Corman's poetry by Daniel at Cityful Press, but range broadly over literary and other matters. Also present is a draft of Corman's poem "The Ultimate Wise Guy" and some notes concerning Corman and poet Lorine Niedecker.
