Wilfred Watson fonds

  • CA UOFA uofa-2637
  • Fonds
  • 1946-1998

The Wilfred Watson fonds span a period of over fifty years, and provide a record of the creative processes of a noted Canadian poet, playwright, teacher and literary theorist. The records have been arranged in eight series: Journals and Notebooks; Literary drafts/Writings; Sketches/Artwork; Correspondence; Student Records; Reference Material; Personal Papers; and Audio-Visual Records. Watson's notebooks are filled with drafts of plays and poems, ideas for further development, excerpts from his own reading, sketches, and jottings about his daily activities. The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by correspondent and includes an important sub-series of letters written between Wilfred and Sheila Watson. The Literary drafts and Writings Series is significant as often several different versions of a particular poem or even an entire play are present in the files. The writing files take on added significance since they provide evidence of, as Wilfred Watson was once described, "a prolific poet who publishes little".
