ALs: Letter from Robert Creeley to Ted and Alice Berrigan
Bolinas, CA: n.p., 1975. First Edition. no binding. ALs on Creeley's Bolinas, CA stationary with envelope addressed to Ted and Alice Berrigan at their Chicago address. In ink, on both sides, in Creeley's very legible if not always grammatical hand. Approx. 175 words, some personal, but Creeley asks Alice for poems for a supplement to the American Poetry Journal, then finally he asks: "Also, 'help' - can you (Ted!' a more lovely man never lived...' old saying...) get me the $$ for plane - or let me know when that will be simple? Not to bug you, please - but to know. Ok." Signed "Love to you all, Bob". Folded once, else fine in a roughly torn at one edge, else very good envelope. Very good +. Item #10482
Interesting content both professional and personal. Robert Creeley had invited Ted Berrigan to read at Buffalo in 1965, one of his first appearances outside of NYC, and even collaborated on a poem together.
