Salinas, Luis Omar.
Physical Description: 1 linear ft. (2 manuscript boxes)
Salinas is a poet in the Chicano literary movement. This collection of papers appears to be predominantly material Salinas sent to his friend and fellow poet, Christopher Buckley. Included are the notated drafts and galleys for ELEGY FOR DESIRE, letters to Buckley, unpublished poems, photographs, a piece by Buckley about Salinas, 2002, photocopies of published Salinas poems, and Buckley's interview material for Quarterly West, 2002-2003. The dealer writes, "Salinas ... does not have a significant or organized body of papers of his early work. Through Buckley's careful efforts to preserve the record of the development of this book, the unique collaboration between these two poets is documented."
