POETRY IN CLAREMONT: From Manuscript to Print
April 14, 2017 - May 31, 2017
Honnold/Mudd Library, 2nd Floor North Lobby
POETRY IN CLAREMONT: From Manuscript to Print draws on the rich literary holdings in the Claremont Colleges Library Special Collections and in Denison Library at Scripps College. The exhibit focuses on the creation and evolution of poetry, bringing together authors’ manuscripts and typescripts, published works, and book artists’ interpretations. Among the manuscripts featured in the exhibit are those of Emily Dickinson, May Sarton, Joaquin Miller, Yone Noguchi, and Dick Barnes. Poetry by Omar Khayyam, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Maurya Simon has inspired artists’ books in the exhibit.
Special Collections presents this exhibit in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Claremont Graduate University's Tufts poetry awards. These are two of the most prestigious poetry prizes given in the U.S. to contemporary poets.
