Descriptive Summary

Creator: Rakosi, Carl, 1903-
Title: Carl Rakosi Papers,
Date (inclusive): 1903-2004
Extent: 6.50 linear feet (17 archives boxes and 1 oversize folder)
Abstract: Papers of Carl Rakosi, American "Objectivist" poet and social worker, who professionally practiced psychotherapy under the name Callman Rawley. Rakosi was known for his association with the Objectivist movement as well as Jewish writers of the twentieth century. The writings in this collection primarily represent Rakosi's recent (1988-2004) literary activities; however, the numerous other contributions of his 100-year lifespan are also represented. The collection contains correspondence, prose, poems, book reviews, and extensive interviews with Rakosi, while also including journal articles, case histories and notes that document his work as a psychotherapist, during the decades when he withdrew from the publishing world. Included are typescripts and photocopies of poems for THE COLLECTED POEMS OF CARL RAKOSI and page proofs for THE OLD POET'S TALE (1999). The collection represents the part he played as a young poet in the Objectivist movement, with copies of correspondence with other Objectivist poets such as Louis Zukofsky, as well as essays written by Rakosi much later on the impact of that literary moment, such as the short essay called "The Objectivist Connection" that explains the origin of the term "Objectivist." The collection contains worksheets for poems, audio and videocassette recordings of readings and interviews, and drafts of printed interviews.

Biography

Carl Rakosi was born on November 6, 1903, in Berlin, Germany, and came to the United States with his father and stepmother in 1910. He received his B.A. (1924) and M.A. (1926) from the University of Wisconsin, and completed his Masters of Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania in 1940. He married Leah Jaffe in 1939.
During the thirties, Rakosi was a member of a group of poets called "The Objectivists," which included Louis Zukofsky, Charles Reznikoff, and George Oppen. Between 1939 and 1965, he stopped writing in order to devote himself to social work and psychotherapy. It was not until 1965, at the urging of Andrew Crozier, that Rakosi started to write again.
Rakosi practiced social work and psychotherapy as Callman Rawley, his legally adopted professional name. Between 1945 and his retirement in 1968, Rakosi was Executive Director of the Jewish Family and Children's Service in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He also conducted a private practice in psychotherapy between 1955 and 1971.
As an important Objectivist poet, Rakosi's style of writing can be summarized by Stanley Cooperman's comment:
what Rakosi has, delightfully, is an ability to translate
emotion into objects, tastes, smells: and these, in turn,
are completely familiar- except that the familarity occurs
in unexpected juxtapositions of sound and theme...
Rakosi's work is at once irreverent and serious; highly
intellectual and simplistic.
His published works include SELECTED POEMS (1941), AMULET (1967), ERE-VOICE (1971), EX CRANIUM, NIGHT (1975), MY EXPERIENCE IN PARNASSUS (1977), SPIRITUS I (1983), and COLLECTED POEMS (1986), THE EARTH SUITE (1997), and THE OLD POET'S TALE (1999). Besides his literary work, including poetry, essays and book reviews, Rakosi also published articles and reviews on social work and psychology.
Rakosi continues to be involved in the publishing of his collected works, and to correspond with younger writers interested in his and other Objectivists' work.
In 2003, His 100th Birthday celebration was marked by several poets--including Anselm Hollo, Lyn Hejinian, George Evans and others--reading from their own work, at Rakosi's request. Until his death on June 24, 2004, Rakosi continued to develop new poems and to correspond with younger writers interested in his and other Objectivists' work.

Scope and Content of Collection

Accession Processed in 1996
The Carl Rakosi Papers document Rakosi's recent activities as a poet and writer, as well as his professional career as a psychotherapist and social worker. The collection, which dates between 1903 and 1995 (bulk dates, 1988-1995), is arranged in four series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) WRITINGS BY RAKOSI, and 4) WRITINGS BY OTHERS.
SERIES 1: BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS
The BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS series contains Rakosi's birth certificate, official academic transcripts and grade reports, naturalization papers, poetry flyers, newspaper clippings, and his professional profile and list of publications as a psychotherapist. Also included are numerous transcribed interviews with Rakosi.
SERIES 2: CORRESPONDENCE
The CORRESPONDENCE series is arranged alphabetically by correspondent and reflects Rakosi's literary and professional career. In most cases, Rakosi made carbon copies of his replies. Notable correspondents include Jean-Paul Auxemery, who translated many of Rakosi's poems into French, Cid Corman, Andrew Crozier, Kathi George, and Michael Heller. Also represented are exchanges with the editors of numerous poetry magazines. Finally, Rakosi's early life is reflected in the letters of his first girlfriend, Mary Biggs, and his mother, Flora Steiner.
SERIES 3: WRITINGS BY RAKOSI
The WRITINGS BY RAKOSI series is arranged in four subseries: A) Lectures, B) Prose, C) Poetry, and D) Social Work and Psychotherapy. The "Lectures" subseries contains notes for two lectures on poetry. The "Prose" subseries contains several essays on "Objectivist" poets, including Charles Reznikoff and George Oppen. Of particular interest is a short essay called "The Objectivist Connection" that explains the origin of the term "Objectivist." Also included is the first draft and source materials for Rakosi's unpublished autobiography.
The "Poetry" subseries includes typescripts and photocopies of poems for THE COLLECTED POEMS OF CARL RAKOSI and an annotated proof for POEMS, 1923-1941; drafts of miscellaneous poems in various stages of development; and some of Rakosi's contributions to Jewish liturgy.
The "Social Work and Psychotherapy" subseries comprises Callman Rawley's journal articles and book reviews, as well as notes and analysis on patient interviews.
SERIES 4: WRITINGS OF OTHERS
The WRITINGS OF OTHERS series contains manuscripts of collected poetry sent to Rakosi and is arranged alphabetically by author. Also included are three critical essays on Rakosi's literary work.
RELATED COLLECTIONS:
Additional Carl Rakosi materials are located in the David Ignatow Papers (MSS 2), United Artists Archive (MSS 12), George Oppen Papers (MSS 16), Clayton Eshleman Papers (MSS 21), Sun and Moon Archive (MSS 221), and Charley George Papers (MSS 387).

Accessions Processed in 2003

This series is arranged in two subseries: A) Interviews and Writings about Rakosi and B) Miscellaneous Materials.
A) The Interviews and Writings about Rakosi subseries contains drafts and printed copies of interviews and writings about Rakosi, including some which are focused on the larger groups with which Rakosi is often associated such as the Objectivists and Jewish writers of the twentieth century.

This group includes various persons from his earlier career as a social worker, as well as certain family members with whom he has regularly corresponded over many years.
SERIES 3: WRITINGS BY RAKOSI
This series is arranged in three subseries: A) Prose, B) Poetry, and C) Readings and Lectures.
