Overview and metadata sections

Donoso, José, 1924-1996.

José Donoso, born in Santiago de Chile, October 5, 1924, completed high school at The Grange English preparatory school and studied liberal arts at the Instituto Pedagógico of the University of Chile. He attended Princeton University, majoring in English, and received his A.B. degree in 1951. Upon returning to Chile he taught English Literature for several years at the Universidad Católica and in private schools in Santiago. Later he joined the staff of the weekly magazine Ercilla to write several sections including Literature, Theatre, and Painting. He stayed with Ercilla for six years. Meanwhile he received an appointment as Professor of Creative Writing in the School of Journalism of the University of Chile and later received the Chile-Italia prize for Journalism, which brought him to Italy for about six months as a guest of the Ente Turismo. From 1965-67 he was Visiting Professor at the Writers Workshop, University of Iowa, Iowa City, teaching Creative Writing under Paul Engle. In 1967, he left the United States for Spain, where he resided until his return to Santiago, Chile in 1980. In 1969, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, followed by a second in 1974. In 1975 he taught Creative Writing for one semester at Princeton and another semester at Dartmouth. He died of cancer in Santiago, Chile, December 7, 1996.

The collection consists of personal papers of Donoso, the man and the writer. Included are typescript drafts of several of his major works, Este domingo, El obsceno pájaro de la noche, Historia personal del "boom", " Tres novelitas burguesas, Casa de campo, and La desesperanza; correspondence from family members, publishers, and literary friends, such as Latin American writers Carlos Fuentes, Ernesto Sábato, Gustavo Sainz, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Gabriel García Márquez, Donoso's literary agent Carmen Balcells, and filmmaker Luis Buñuel; manuscripts of short stories, articles, speeches and lectures, plays and screenplays; and material about Donoso, such as interviews, essays, newspaper clippings, and a filmscript on his life.

Also included are Donoso's notebooks, numbered 34-50 and 52-64, covering (with gaps) the period from 7 January 1966 to 25 August 1978. They afford the reader several perspectives of Donoso's creative life—literary, biographical, and sociological—capturing and refining the author's ideas before and after the actual composition of the drafts, providing allusions to other works and occasional critical comments, and illuminating the problems and advantages created by exile, the social environment of exiled Latin American writers, and, sometimes, the author's reactions to certain political events.

Furthermore, there is a small selection of miscellaneous material, including awards, photographs, contracts and correspondence of his wife, María Pilar Serrano.

The collection has been organized into the following open-ended series in order to accommodate additional papers in the future,

The collection was formed as a result of a departmental practice of combining into one collection manuscript material of various accessions relating to a particular author.

The José Donoso Papers held by Princeton University Library, Manuscript Division, was started in 1972 with a gift from the author; this has been augmented with subsequent gifts and purchases from Donoso and other sources.

Scope and Contents

This series consists of 29 notebooks in which Donoso recorded themes, characters, references to other writers, miscellaneous notes, and other information about his literary production. This series is organized by notebook number, which was determined by the chronological order.

Introduction

The following guides to José Donoso's Notebooks are intended as an aid in the search for material which might interest the reader. Obviously they are not a substitute for the reading of the notebooks themselves since they are both selective, and in spite of all the efforts made to prevent it, subjective. Hence the need to explain the method followed in their compilation. The reader should keep in mind that a project of this nature is not free from practical and intellectual limitations so that in order to overcome them, his own efforts are essential.

The dates, locations, numbers, and pagination of the notebooks belong to the author himself. When internal contradictions in dating arise, brackets are used as in the case of any other uncertainty to indicate them. Although the notebooks contain more pages than those actually numbered, the number of pages takes into account only the latter. All references to page numbers adhere to the author's pagination, except when a given page number is repeated. In such cases, a letter has been added to the page number in order to distinguish the different pages.

The initial synopses generally indicate the main projects with which a given notebook is concerned, the nature of these concerns, and the stages of the project under preparation. All references to these stages pertain to the notebooks themselves, not to the author's published work. No attempt has been made to indicate revisions concerning plot details or chapter divisions from the perspective of the published work. The collation of the notebooks and the several typescripts available is another task, which notwithstanding the many cross-references, remains to be done.

The list of themes includes only those mentioned by the author, and the terminology used to designate the different themes, even though awkward at times, is as close as possible to the one used by him.

The list of characters enumerates the characters related to the main project under preparation. The c haracter sketches section isolates the instances in which a character is discussed explicitly or in detail. Because of the Jamesian interpenetration of character and action, characterization is not limited to such instances; it is inseparable from plot discussion.

The inventory of the cultural references made by the author to any fields of creative endeavor includes, in general, only references made from an artistic rather than a personal point of view (friends, acquaintances, etc.). Names rather than titles of works are given, even if this is not always the case in notebooks. When the notebook only mentions a surname, the identity of the person in question has been determined by the context in which the mention occurs. When such determination is uncertain, only the surname is listed. Uncertainties regarding the references themselves are denoted by brackets.

The secondary projects mentioned either in passing or in detailed notes are listed separately, with a brief description. A special format has been used with regard to the notebooks in which several main projects are discussed.

Other items of interest have been grouped as miscellaneous. Although this is an openended and eminently subjective section, it strives to take into account a series of recurring concerns.

The notebooks afford the reader a vision of José Donoso's creative processes from several perspectives, literary, biographical, and sociological. Primarily, they serve the purpose of capturing and refining the author's ideas before and after the actual composition of the drafts and thus reveal an important facet of his working method. They may also illuminate certain problematic passages of his published works. The abundant allusions to other works, and the occasional critical comments about them, give an indication of the breath of the author's cultural background.

The literary concerns are set in the personal context of a self-testimony intended as a portrait of the man and the artist. On this account, the notebooks also record the author's material circumstances and his private thoughts and feelings.

The problems and advantages created by exile, the social environment of a group of exiled Latin-American writers, and, sometimes the author's reactions to certain political events are also important aspects to his notebooks.

What follows is the description of Notebooks 34-47; Notebooks before 34 are at the University of Iowa.

Notebook on El obsceno pájaro de la noche. Preoccupation with the content and sequence of particular episodes, broad outlines for the main sections of the novel, character analyses.

Notebook 43, 1970 July 15-1971 October 21. 1 folder.
Scope and Contents

116 pages numbered by the author, 52 pages numbered by the department for ease of reference. Dates and locations, 1970 July 15-1971 October 21; Vallvidrera, Spain (pp. 1-84) Calaceite, Spain (pp. 84-158).

The notebook records a transitional period and thus contains a wealth of projects, ideas, and themes as the author, having finished El obsceno pájaro de la noche, seeks new material. Although the profusion of ideas hinders a clear classification, four main projects sometimes borrowing elements from each other eventually emerge. All other projects are finally rejected in favor of a book concerning the "boom" of the Latin American novel, later to become Historia personal del "boom".

Main Projects,

(1) Ideas, plot details, character analyses, and discussion of temporal structure for a novel predominantly titled "La visa" (see esp. pp. 1-6. 8-46, 48-51, 61-62, 82-83, 87-89). The author also discusses its desired tone and style (11-12, 33, 44) and contemplates the possibility of incorporating material from Notebook 42 (38). A general feature of the project is its autobiographical dimension. A number of themes, centered around the notion of the dissolution of the personality, are listed as a basis for the project's conception (8-16). Other themes also appear.

Themes, the Catalan bourgeoisie, 12; the Latin American novelist's notion of reality, 19-20, 22; political engagement, 20; the search for origins, 24; exile, 27; modernismo turned into "camp"; 27; "the disease of the future", 32; nostalgia, 40; death and fame, 43, 45; one's native language, 46, 61; the spiritual atmosphere of the "boom", 47; the duality of hero and anti . hero, 49; ideals, 50; patriotism, 50.

Characters, Pepe Donoso; María Pilar; Gonzalo; Mary Foxá; el escritor; el pintor; the Goytisolos; the Moix; Sergio Pitol; the Tusquets; M. Vargas Llosa; the Princeton alumnus (Belloli) and his secretary; etc.

(2) Ideas for a narrative titled "Album de familia" (see mainly pp. 51 . 59). It would contain autobiographical elements and would be, on a certain level, a historical account of the Donoso family.

Themes, memories of bygone greatness, 52; lost legacies, 52; the search for a father, 54; social ambiguity, 54.

Characters, initially prototypes which are then substituted for historically identifiable individuals, las viejas; mi abuela; mis tías; las criadas (M. Leiva, C. Reyes, Lucrecia, Hilda); los parientes arruinados; the Yañez; the Ponces; the Portaluppi; mi tía Mina; mi madre; mis tíos; mi tía Flora; mi tía Gabriela; R. Vicuña Herboso; M. Casanova; A. Rodríguez Altamirano; doña M. Ramos; mi tía Berta; mi padre; los primos; F. Bravo; Mrs. Balfour; G. Silva; J. Valdivieso; [Marrané]; M. Jaramillo; [T. Erráquiz]; I. Figueroa; J. Vidarme; etc.

(3) Ideas, lists of main elements, outlines of main sections for a project initially titled "El Revés del pájaro" (see esp. pp. 68-77, 81-82, 94-104). The autobiographical tendencies of the previous project are developed so as to reveal, in a lengthy narrative, the personal circumstances behind the writing of El obsceno pájaro de la noche. The author refers to a draft of this proyect. The characters include many acquaintances and the themes are those which appear in El obsceno pájaro de la noche, now linked to the authors's life.

(4) Ideas, authors to be studied, topics, drafts of some paragraphs for a book of essays on the "boom" (see esp. pp. 2, 60, 62-64, 77-80, 84, 86, 87, 110-156). The project is given several titles or simply referred to as "The Boom." The author prints in capitals what could be the main thesis of the project (118-120), analyzes several aspects of Latin-American literature, and the work of some novelists, as follows, the literary atmosphere in Argentina, 123-125, 132; literary subversion, 127-128; literary contemporariness[?, contemporaneousness], 135-136; impressionistic criticism, 137; exile, 138-140; pont of view, 147-148; topics under which the novelists may be studied, 151-152; observations about the works of A. Carpentier (120-121, 130-131), J. Cortázar (126-127), M. Vargas Llosa (132-133, 149, 155), M. Puig (133-134, 143- 144, 149), M. A. Asturias (142), J. C. Onetti (146).

Notebook 44, 1973 May 18-December 20. 1 folder.
Scope and Contents

367 pages. Dates and locations, 1973 May 18-December 20; Calaceite, Spain (1-189, 198-367) Poland (189-198).

After the completion of Tres novelitas burguesas, the author resumes the practice of keeping a notebook. The first half of the notebook records an "intermediate" period, during which "thousands of ideas" are explored. Only a few of the many possibilities considered receive more than cursory attention. The initial idea for Casa de campo almost immediately overshadows all other projects. The author deliberately stresses the intimate dimension of the notebook in order to furnish a document by which to be judged.

Main Projects,

  1. (1) A play on the theme of exile and returning to one's homeland (see mainly pp. 10-11, 82-91, 190-191, 194-196, 197, 200-204). A cast of characters and a list of the persons after which they are modelled are given (85).
  2. (2) The "Antonioni project," a script which the author hopes to submit to the film director (see mainly pp. 11-18, 41-43, 45-46, 60, 74-75, 81, 82). Not only different themes but different story-lines are explored for this project.
  3. (3) A novel which subsumes and transforms many of the previous ideas in the notebook (see mainly pp. 92-123, 125-130, 134-154, 156-158, 160-161, 162-164, 166-169). The increasing predominance of the author's personal concerns and of episodes from his own life turn the project into an autobiographical novel (136) and a means of self-discovery (153).
  4. (4) A novel soon titled Casa de campo (180). In the initial stages of the novel the author takes notes about the general atmosphere, the setting, main themes, plot details, motivation, etc., and he is concerned with the nature of the relations between characters and character categories. As the plot emerges, the sequence of events and chapters becomes a significant concern. The author also discusses the novel's linguistic characteristics (185, 197, 211-212) and its tone (174, 207, 350). By the end of the notebook he has completed a draft of the first four chapters.

Themes, order vs. disorder, 172; friendship, 174; politics, 177, 178; the outsider, 178; time, 181, 182, 203, 312; dependence, 184; anarchism, 188; "procedure", 205, 262; participation, 218; repression, 221, 241, 275; blindeness, 258; guilt, 276; fear, 276, 278, 279 . 280, 313, 314; machismo, 277, 349; independence, 295; unrecognition, 302; antagonism toward parents, 315.

Notebook 49, 1977 April 28-1978 April 7. 1 folder.

Notebook on Casa de campo. Discussion of plot details, characterization, and the sequence of episodes. There are long entry gaps during the first half of the notebook as the author's conviction in the novel weakens. During this period, several alternate projects are considered as a respite in the writing of the novel. When the author begins to work steadily on it once more, he goes over Chapters 1 through 10 and finishes reviewing and rewriting half of Chapter 11, originally written several years back. While the notebook points to several future proyects, it also records a critical period in the creation of the novel as the author breathes new life into it. There is a substancial error in pagination, which skips from page 70 to page 90.
