Biography

Alice Notley was born in 1945 in Bisbee, Arizona. She received a B.A from Barnard College, in 1967, and an M.F.A. from the University of Iowa in 1969. She married the writer Ted Berrigan in 1972, with whom she had two sons. After Berrigan's death in 1983, she married the British poet Doug Oliver and relocated to Paris, France.

Notley's writing and art responds to a broad spectrum of American culture. Her experiments with poetic forms and free verse owe as much to Gertrude Stein, Frank O'Hara, and Ted Berrigan as they do to William Carlos Williams. Like them, she believes that she is writing primarily to express her own personal tone of voice. She feels her speech is the voice of "the new wife, and the new mother" in her own time, but her first aim is to make a poem, rather than present a platform of social reform.

Among the numerous collections of verse that Notley has published are Incidental in the Day World (1973), When I was Alive (1980), Waltzing Matilda (1981), Margaret and Dusty (1985), and How Spring Comes (1981) which received a 1982 San Francisco Poetry Center Book Award. In addition to her poems, Notley wrote a short autobiography entitled Tell Me Again (1982).

In addition to poetry, Notley has also experimented with the visual arts; her collection includes collages, watercolors, and sketches. Many of the collages are composed of everyday objects and images and are quite consistent with her poetry in that respect. A significant group of the collages are aimed at de-eroticizing images taken from pornographic magazines.

With her second husband, Douglas Oliver, Notley co-edited the literary magazine, Gare Du Nord, publishing five issues in two years (1998-1999). However, the production of the magazine was put aside when in the fall of 1999, Douglas Oliver was diagnosed with cancer from which he died in the spring of 2000.

Notley has continued to write both prose and poetry, published in such works as Desamere (1995), Mysteries of Small Houses (1998), Disobedience (2001), Coming After (2005), Alma or the Dead Women (2006), In the Pines (2007), Reason and Other Women (2010), Culture of One (2011) and Songs and Stories of the Ghouls (2011) among others.

Scope and Content of Collection

Accession Processed in 1995

The Alice Notley Papers documents Notley's career as an artist and writer. The collection is comprised of notebooks containing manuscript drafts of much of Notley's published work, correspondence with numerous poets and editors, and collages and other examples of her visual art. The bulk of the collection dates from the late 1960s through the 1990s; the papers are arranged in four series: 1) MANUSCRIPTS, 2) NOTEBOOKS, 3) CORRESPONDENCE, and 4) ARTWORKS.

SERIES 1: MANUSCRIPTS

The MANUSCRIPTS series contains a play in three acts entitled "Twilight Vision."

SERIES 2: NOTEBOOKS

The NOTEBOOKS series, which is arranged chronologically, dates from 1969 to 1990. Entries document Notley's day-to-day activities and her personal associations, as well as her literary production. The notebooks also include drawings and Notley's meditations on others writers such as Dante, Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and William Carlos Williams.

SERIES 3: CORRESPONDENCE

The CORRESPONDENCE series is extensive and includes letters from people prominent in contemporary art and literature, for example, Joe Brainard, Andrei Codrescu, Edward Halsey Foster, Allen Ginsberg, Douglas Messerli, Eileen Myles, Ron Padgett, Leslie Scalapino, Anne Waldman, and Philip Whalen. The series is arranged alphabetically by correspondent and primarily falls within the time span 1988-1994.

SERIES 4 : ARTWORKS

The ARTWORKS series contain seven subseries: A) Collages, B) Book Collages, C) Box Collages, D) Fan Collages, E) Mask Collages, F) Sketches and G) Watercolors. Each subseries is arranged alphabetically by title. In cases when a title is not supplied by Notley, a title was supplied based on a topic sentence or major feature or theme of the work. The content of Notley's artworks vary from human portraits, women's figures, everyday life images and landscapes to abstract objects, shapes and colors. Her style is sensuous, lyrical, humorous, and even transnational. She often incorporates traditional elements of Chinese and Japanese art in her collages.

Accession Processed in 1998

The accession processed in 1998 contains a typescript of Close to Me and Closer... (Language of Heaven) and Desamere (1995), notebooks (1990-1994) and correspondence (1991-1997).

It contains correspondence, manuscripts and paste-ups associated with each issue, and is arranged chronologically by issue. Within each issue, however, the materials are arranged alphabetically according to the authors' last names.

The ARTWORKS series is arranged in two subseries: A) Fans and Collages and B) Miscellaneous.

A) The Fans and Collages subseries, arranged alphabetically by title, contains a number of works which contain collage-elements, including a number of fans decorated with paint and collage.

Also included are flyers for poetry readings which Notley created and works for Ted Berrigan (her first husband), and Douglas Oliver (her second husband). The subseries is arranged alphabetically.
