Thom Gunn and "Misanthropos"
Edited by Joshua Weiner, the volume surveys Gunn's career from his youth in s Britain to his final years in California. Weiner positions "Misanthropos" as significant within Gunn's poetic oeuvre, as an attempt to capture his vision of and for poetry, in style, form, and occasion. Digital surrogates of some of the primary sources cited in Weiner's essay appear in the exhibit as well as an additional item related to "Misanthropos" from the Archives of the Poetry Book Society, another of the Libraries' literary manuscript collections.
The manuscripts in this exhibit document Gunn's attitudes and ideas before, during, and after the poem's composition. Mike Kitay, Gunn's literary trustee, generously granted permission to include the digital surrogates from Gunn's notebooks and manuscripts exhibited here. These collections enrich scholarly opportunities for the University's Students, faculty, and staff, as well as those of the state, national, and international communities.
