Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists, for the most part, of manuscripts, galleys, and notes for six of Gorman's historical novels - The Scottish Queen (1932), The Mountain and the Plain (1936), The Brave General (1942), Wine of San Lorenzo (1945), The Cry of Dolores (1948), and The Breast of the Dove (1950)--and one unfinished semi-autobiographical novel, "The Piper's Son," but the papers also contain an unpublished collection of Gorman's poems, adaptations of novels for radio, such as Pere Goriot and Don Quixote, several articles, reviews, and fragments of a play, "Ygraine," which Gorman wrote at age 16. Although Gorman is known for his two biographies of James Joyce, only four pages of notes on this subject exist in the collection. Also included are several photographs of Gorman, bibliographies of his works, and a small amount of correspondence.
