Biographical Note

American poet Cid (Sidney) Corman was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 29, 1924. After receiving a B.A. from Tufts College in 1945, he did graduate work at the University of Michigan, where he won the Hopwood Award for poetry, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1948, Corman returned to Boston, where he organized a series of poetry groups and broadcast a radio show called "This is Poetry." This program brought Corman into contact with several established poets, including John Crowe Ransom, Archibald MacLeish, Richard Wilbur, Theodore Roethke, and Marianne Moore. The latter introduced him to the writer's colony at Yaddo, where he met William Carlos Williams, who would become a strong influence in Corman's own poetry.

In 1951, Corman founded and edited the literary quarterly Origin, which published the work of new or little-known authors. The magazine printed works by several poets from the Black Mountain community, including Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, and Robert Duncan. In addition to promoting the works of many American poets, including Corman himself, Origin published several poems in translation. The magazine would eventually go through five series, the last ending in 1986.

In 1954-55, Corman received a Fulbright fellowship to study at the Sorbonne. The next year, he taught in Italy, and began publishing volumes of poetry under the Origin Press imprint. From 1958-1966, Corman taught in Kyoto, Japan, at Kyoto Joshidai, Ryukoto University, and Doshisha University. He and his wife, Shizumi Konshini, have lived primarily in Kyoto ever since, where they run a successful business, Cid Corman's Dessert Shop.

Corman has published over seventy volumes of poetry, beginning with A Thanksgiving Eclogue from Theocritus (1954), and including Sun Rock Man (1962), Livingdying (1970), Of, Vol. I-II (1990), Of: Volume Three (1998), and Nothing / Doing (1999). He has also translated several French and Japanese poems, including work by Bashõ, Kusano Shimpei, and Francis Ponge, and published four volumes of essays. His anthology, The Gist of Origin (1975) contains a brief history of the magazine and several excerpts from the first three series.

Scope and Content Note

The Cid Corman Journals span the dates 1955 – 2000. The eight linear feet of material in the collection consists of Corman’s daily journals, seventy-nine volumes extensively interleaved with news clippings, letters, poems, photographs, and other ephemera. The collection also includes two small volumes of Corman’s poems, translated into Portuguese by Stella Leonardos in 1964.

The journal volumes are arranged chronologically, as written and compiled by Corman, from 1955 – 2000. Corman assigned sequential volume numbers to some of his journals; this numbering sequence has been completed and used, with dates, to identify journals in the collection. Corman typically interleaved news clippings, correspondence, photos, and other ephemera into his journals, adding considerably to their bulk. For preservation purposes, and because there was no significant contextual loss by removing them, the laid-in items have been transferred into separate folders, immediately following the appropriate volumes. Thus, the folders for each journal may be organized according to four categories: 1) Journal; 2) Clippings; 3) Letters, etc.; 4) Photos.

The journals represent a forty-five year period of nearly uninterrupted daily entries made in Corman’s small handwriting; only two of the seventy-nine journals are typed. Corman was notably consistent in his manner of composing the journals, dating each entry in the left margin and almost always starting each new journal without an interruption of dates. Almost without exception Corman has given each journal a starting date, usually on the inside cover or the front free endpaper. Most of the journals are the same approximate size, 9 x 7 inches, and 125- 150 pages. When traveling, Corman kept a separate journal, generally in small pocket notebooks. Corman typically filled each journal before starting a new one, except in the case of a travel journal, which he used specifically for his trip.

The general content of Corman’s journals is also consistent over the years. Nearly all of Corman’s entries record the time he woke, the weather, his daily tasks and activities, and personal affairs. However, certain distinctions concerning the content can be made. The content of the early journals reflects Corman’s work as a poet, translator, and the editor of Origin. In the middle- to late-1950s Corman was traveling, working, and living in Europe before finally settling in Japan, and the dominant themes of this period include observations on literature, art, and the foreign cultures that he encountered. The entries during this period are the most creative and spontaneous of the collection.

During the middle- and late-1960s Corman continued to make entries on art and literature, but during the 1970s he began recording more quotidian information, such as the financial details of the desert shop he owned in Kyoto, Japan. The reflective quality of the earlier journals begins to give way to more matter-of-fact entries and commonplace observations about his everyday life.

Beginning in the early 1980s, Corman’s thoughts on television programs, movies, sporting events, and his daily movements dominate the journals. During an extended stay in Boston, Corman opened a Japanese Tea House and many of the financial arrangements are recorded in the journals. Previously prominent observations of literature and art are supplanted in the later journals by financial concerns and the minutiae of daily movements. Yet the entries have a devotional quality that complement Corman’s dedication to making daily entries.

Corman kept hundreds of newspaper clippings and inter-filed them in his journals along with various personal letters, poems, and other ephemera. The clippings, with bulk dates of 1962 – 2000, are short articles cut from newspapers like the Japan Times, International Herald Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, and Boston Globe, corresponding to where Corman was living at the time. Throughout the collection the clippings fall into two general categories: current affairs, and stories of personal interest to Corman. The current affairs that attracted Corman’s attention are characteristic of each time period; representative of this category are stories on the civil rights movement, Vietnam, Watergate, and the Iran-Contra affair. Representative clippings in the second category include articles on art, archeology, atomic weapons, chess, the cold war, economics, elections, President Kennedy’s assassination, literature—including annual Nobel prize winners, and obituaries of famous writers—nuclear testing, politics, space travel, sports, and Sumo wrestling.

Also included in the collection are a few typescript and manuscript notes, poems, and drafts of letters, unsent letters, gallery and concert programs, travel documents, receipts, and other ephemera. In the earlier journals there are several one-or two-page, typed essays and notes on a variety of topics including literature, art and politics (journals #1, 3-6, 8, 10-12, 14 offer the best examples). Most of the drafts of letter are addressed to newspaper editors, but there are several to world leaders, such as Lyndon Johnson, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson, and Pope John Paul II. Other items include receipts for plane and bus tickets, which further document the various lecture tours and trips that Corman made to the United States.
