Descripción:

Irwin Peter Russell (16 September 1921 – 22 January 2003) was a British poet, translator and critic. He spent the first half of his life—apart from war service—based in Kent and London, being the proprietor of a series of bookshops, editing the influential literary magazine "NINE" and being part of the literary scene. Bankruptcy and divorce led to several years of travel which took him to Berlin, Venice, British Columbia and Iran, amongst other places. After the Iranian Revolution he settled permanently in Italy, where he spent the rest of his life. He lived in considerable financial hardship and throughout all he lived a life dedicated to poetry. His work never became mainstream, but it is highly regarded in some circles. A literary and personal archive of the poet Peter Russell, given to his friend and patron, Stanley Scott. Russell edited the literary magazine,"NINE", before being forced abroad by divorce and bankruptcy. Much of the correspondence concerns Russell's creative existence and the constant fund-raising that was necessary to allow this inherently unprofitable activity to continue. The archive contains around fifty documents, among them: manuscript copy of Four Songs in Russell's hand, 'Berlin 12 February 1964'; fair copy 'For a Birth'; fair copy 'Splenetics; 'Sea with Sands',pencil draft of translation from the Italian of Salvatore Quasimodo at one hour's notice from ADAM review 1959/60?'; manuscript' A Sonnet On Going Bankrupt', signed 'Peter Russell 1936'; 'Dreamsong' typescript, Venice 1965, 'Brandy and Ice', typescript with manuscript corrections; 'Manuela's Poems', 3 page typescript; original manuscript of 'Dry Rain is falling in the night', 13 Sept '59; 3 page foolscap manuscript review of Ferguson's Editing the Small Magazine. Additionally the archive contains a long correspondence between 1955 and 1970. This begins with letters sent in Russell's capacity as a rare book seller, progressing through a mimeographed circular letter announcing that 'The Gallery Bookshop has unfortunately been closed down' to more intimate correspondence during the 1960s when Stanley Scott became a patron to Russell, receiving poetic manuscript items in exchange for 'gifts' of cash. Among the letters is an interesting account of Russell's experience drawing Stephen Ward 'whom I used to know in my days of Army Service in 1943!' The tone of the letters varies between optimism about his literary output to deeply embarrassing appeals for financial help: 'Now things have got very bad indeed. If I seem to be begging (I am!)' A couple of copy letters from Scott reveal his attempts to play the role of patron without appearing patronising: 'Dear Peter Russell, This is not a gift neither am I ordering anything.' The letters are full of insights about the creative process as well as the bohemian not to say, precarious, existence led by Russell and his struggle to maintain a considerable poetic and critical output. After a quick count I've established that pf the poetry, there are six sheets of manuscript poems and nine sheets of typed poetry. Additionally there are 21 typed letters, 3 manuscript letters and a 2 page foolscap manuscript review article. Accompanying the archive are a dozen or so circulars and promotional leaflets relating to Russell's writing and bookselling activities. The letters, both typed and manuscript, are all signed in Russell's hand, many of them with autograph annotations and corrections. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Peter Neville Ltd, London/New York, 1950. Hardcover. Condición: Fair. No Jacket. This book is not for collectors, but it's a good reading copy. The cover is in poor shape with some tears near the spine; the spine is sun faded, detached from the binding, and glued back in place. However, the interior of the book is clean -aside from some light staining on edges - and in good condition. A selected Pound bibliography from 1908 to 1948 is included in the book.
