Amy Clampitt: her peripatetic life and work

This mini-exhibit is part of DeGoyler's larger Lives of the Poets: Literary Biography from Geoffrey Chaucer to Amy Clampitt exhibit.

This mini-exhibit was inspired by the work of Dr. Willard Spiegelman and his 2023 biography over American poet Amy Clampitt, titled: Nothing Stays Put- the Life and Poetry of Amy Clampitt. Several of the items in this exhibit were donated from his collection.

The items in this exhibit include correspondence from Clampitt; some of her early writings and also some of her poetry; photos of Clampitt throughout her life. The exhibit includes works about Clampitt written after her death.

The items in the exhibit are organized chronologically from the 1940s to the 2020s, which allows for the viewer to trace Clampitt's development and experiences.
