Description
Papers of an American poet and editor which shed light on the careers of a group of writers who began publishing in the late 1960's. Vermont published three books of poetry: CHARLIE IS LAUGHING, TWO WOMEN, and SELECTED POEMS. He was also the editor of Two Charlies with Charles Walsh. The Vermont papers are dominated by correspondence with other poets which touch on both the correspondent's and Vermont's literary careers and personal lives. The earliest of the letters dates from the late 1960's, and the most recent is from the early 1980's--the majority were written in the mid-1970's. Writers with whom Vermont corresponded include Robert Creeley, Philip Whalen, Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Tom Clark, Lewis Warsh, Larry Goodell, and Stephen Rodefer. Also included is a small group of original writings by Vermont.
