Overview and metadata sections

Vielé-Griffin, Francis, 1864-1937

Francis Vielé-Griffin was an American-born French poet who became an important figure in the French Symbolist movement.

The collection contains Vielé-Griffin manuscripts and miscellany, but the bulk of the collection consists of family and literary correspondence of Vielé-Griffin. Among the family correspondence are letters by the poet's father and sister which shed light on the experience of the American-born's childhood in France. The literary correspondence includes the poet's letters to Albert Mockel, Stuart Merrill, and Edouard Dujardin. In addition, there are letters from Edmund Gosse, Stephen Massett, Thomas Sturge Moore, George Moore, Rodin, Johannes Schlaf, Henri Barbusse, Francis Jammes, Marcel Schwob, and James McNeill Whistler. There are also five autograph manuscripts of Vielé-Griffin's verse: "En Arcadie," "Les Brumes," "Pour le 2 Novembre," "Communion," and "Samle France."

Various AM. Negative microfilm of letters of Andre Gide to Francis Viele-Griffin is a gift of Mr. Rosenthal of the University of Chicago Library.
