Ben Shahn: For the Sake of a Single Verse

For the Sake of a Single Verse is a portfolio of twenty-four lithographs from the Haggerty Museum of Art’s collection created by artist Ben Shahn. The prints illustrate a select passage from Rainer Maria Rilke’s only novel, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge (1910). This semi-autobiographical novel tells the story of a college student from an aristocratic Danish family living in destitute in Paris in the early 1900s. The book made a profound and lasting impression on Shahn. Although Shahn first read the novel while visiting Paris in the 1920s, he didn’t create the illustrations until 1968—a year before his death.

The Ariel Poems

The Ariel Poems are a series of pamphlets published by Faber and Gwyer and later by Faber and Faber, an independent publishing house in Great Britain. The thirty-eight poems that constitute the First Series were published between 1927 and 1931. In 1954, eight poems were added as the Second Series. The pamphlets featured in this exhibition are part of the Raynor Memorial Libraries Special Collections and University Archives, which holds a complete collection of titles in the series. Conceived as a collaboration between poets and artists, each pamphlet was authored and illustrated by different individuals. Many of the poets are well-known today, but perhaps the most significant of these is T. S. Eliot. Eliot joined Faber and Gwyer as an editor in 1925, and remained there for the rest of his career. This exhibition was curated by Amy Cooper Cary, Head, Special Collections and University Archives, Raynor Memorial Libraries and Dr. Angela Sorby, Professor, Department of English.
