Marjorie Welish Archive

Marjorie Welish

The Yale Collection of American Literature has acquired the literary archive of poet, painter, and art critic Marjorie Welish.

Welish is the author of several books of poetry, including The Annotated “Here” and Selected Poems, a finalist for the 2002 Academy of American Poets Lenore Marshall Prize.

Her creative and critical work was recently the subject of a conference at the University of Pennsylvania; many of the papers delivered there have been collected in Of the Diagram: the Work of Marjorie Welish. She has taught at Brown University, The New School University, Pratt Institute, and she was the Judith E. Wilson Poetry Fellow at Cambridge University in 2005.

The Marjorie Welish Papers include correspondence with Barbara Guest and Ann Lauterbach, whose papers are also at the Beinecke Library, as well as Michael Palmer, Carla Harryman, John Taggert, Maxine Chernoff, Rosmarie Waldrop, Barrett Watten, Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge, Tony Lopez, Gustaf Sobin, Charles Altieri, Marjorie Perloff, Robert Kelly, Trevor Winkfield, Norma Cole, Emmanuel Hocquard, Dominique Fourcade, Forrest Gander, and Rachel Blau DuPlessis, among many other writers and artists, curators, editors, art critics, and artists.

The archive also includes poetry, literary criticism, and art criticism manuscripts; notebooks and source documents; printed materials including books, journals, and ephemera documenting art and literature events and happenings in New York City.

This collection is open for research; a preliminary list of contents is available online at Marjorie Welish Papers. Contact nancy.kuhl@yale.edu for more information.
