Biographical Note*

Highly prolific poet, translator, and prose writer Cid Corman was born in Boston in 1924. He enrolled as an undergraduate in Tufts University in 1941, graduating in 1945. He completed post-graduate work at the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Corman returned to Boston in 1948 where he made efforts to establish a "poetic community" by holding poetry events at public libraries and creating a poetry radio program on which poets read from their works. In 1950-51 Corman begain editing and publishing a little magazine called Origin which featured his own works and those of his contemporaries including Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, Larry Eigner, Denise Levertov, William Bronk, Charles Olson, Louis Zukofsky, and Paul Blackburn. In 1954 Corman went to Europe on a Fulbright Grant and studied at the Sorbonne in France. He later moved to Japan where his output, in addition to his own poetry and editing work, included translations of the works of Japanese poets. Corman continued his editorship of Origin through several more series. The Gist of Origin (featured in box 4 of this collection) describes the creation and development of the magazine from1951 through its third series in 1971.
