David R. Slavitt (1935-)

David Rytman Slavitt is a Jewish-American writer, editor, and translator. Born in White Plains, New York on March 23, 1935, Slavitt earned his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University in 1956, where he was a member of the “Scholars of the House” program as class poet. He completed his M.A. in English at Columbia University in New York City in 1957. Slavitt is primarily known for his collections of poetry, including Cheater’s Dozen: Eleven Poems, which he self-published in 1952, Suits for the Dead (1961), Dozens (1981), PS3569.L3 (1998), and Falling from Silence: Poems (2001). Slavitt has published over 100 novels, poetry anthologies, nonfiction books, and translations over the course of his literary career, at times using pseudonyms such as Henry Sutton, Lynn Meyer (his first wife’s name), Henry Lazarus, and David Benjamin. Novels include The Carnivore (1965), Anagrams (1970), The Proposal (1980), The Hussar (1987), and Salazar Blinks (1988).

After publishing his first work of translation Eclogues of Virgil, in 1971, Slavitt increasingly focused on translating classical Greek and Latin poetry and plays, as well as other works in French, Italian, Hebrew, and Sanskrit. Translated works include The Metamorphoses of Ovid (1994), Sonnets of Love and Death of Jean de Sponde (2001), Propertius in Love: The Elegies (2002), Orlando Furioso: a new verse translation (2009), The Metabolism of Desire: The Poems of Guido Cavalcanti (2012), and The Mahabharata (2015). Slavitt has also taught literature and writing workshops at Temple University, Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, and Bennington College.

As of 2022, Slavitt and his second wife, Janet Lee Abrahm, a professor at Harvard Medical School, live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Processing Information

Collections are processed to a variety of levels, depending on the work necessary to make them usable, their perceived research value, the availability of staff, competing priorities, and whether or not further accruals are expected. The library attempts to provide a basic level of preservation and access for all collections, and does more extensive processing of higher priority collections as time and resources permit. Information included in the Description of Papers note and Collection Contents section is drawn from information supplied with the collection and from an initial survey of the contents. Folder titles appearing in the contents list below are often based on those provided by the creator or previous custodian. Titles have not been verified against the contents of the folders in all cases. Otherwise, folder titles are supplied by staff during initial processing. This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection and/or revisions in arrangement and description.
