Biographical Sketch

Christine Frances Evelyn Brooke-Rose was born in Geneva, Switzerland, on January 16, 1923. The younger of two daughters of Alfred Northbrook Rose, who was English, and Evelyn Brooke Rose, who was half Swiss and half American, Christine Brooke-Rose was raised in Brussels and educated at Somerville College, Oxford (B.A. 1949, M.A. 1953) and University College, London (Ph.D. 1954). Her parents' marriage dissolved while Brooke-Rose was quite young; her father died in 1934, and her mother later became a Benedictine nun (Mother Anselm).

During World War II, Brooke-Rose served as an intelligence officer in the British Women's Auxiliary Air Force, working at Bletchley Park. She married Rodney Ian Shirley Bax, whom she met through her war work, on May 16, 1944. They were divorced in January, 1948, and the marriage was later annulled. On February 13, 1948, Brooke-Rose married Polish poet and novelist Jerzy Pietrkiewicz (later Peterkiewicz). When her husband became ill in 1956, Brooke-Rose began to write novels after having published Gold (1955), a metaphysical religious poem based upon the anonymous fourteenth-century English poem Pearl. Her first two novels, The Languages of Love (1957) and The Sycamore Tree (1958), were satirical novels of manners. The Dear Deceit (1960), based upon her father's life, and The Middlemen: A Satire (1961) were also conventional novels, although The Dear Deceit used the technique of presenting the story in reverse chronological order.

After her own illness in 1962, Brooke-Rose's fiction changed dramatically; her next novel, Out (1964), discarded the traditional ideals of character and plot and began the play with language and form that has marked her work ever since. From 1956 to 1968, Brooke-Rose worked in London as a freelance literary journalist. In 1968, Brooke-Rose separated from her husband and moved to Paris, beginning a career as a teacher of Anglo-American literature and literary theory at the University of Paris VIII, Vincennes. As a professor, Brooke-Rose was able to work on her fiction only during summer breaks. Such (1966) is the story of the after-death experience of an astronomer, told in terms of astrophysics. Between (1968), centering around the experiences of a professional translator, is a book about language and communication. In 1970, Go When You See the Green Man Walking, a collection of short stories, was published. Brooke-Rose has called her next novel, Thru (1975), a "fiction about the fictionality of fiction."

Nine years elapsed between the publication of Thru and the publication of Amalgamemnon (1984); Brooke-Rose referred to this period as her "traversée du desert."Amalgamemnon and three subsequent novels, Xorandor (1986), Verbivore (1990), and Textermination (1991), form a loose "computer quartet" reflecting on the demise of humanism. Amalgamemnon, written entirely in future and conditional tenses, is about a female professor of literature in a time when the humanities have become irrelevant. Xorandor is a science fiction story about the discovery by two children of a silicon-based civilization that feeds on nuclear radiation. The story is written in the form of dialogue and computer printouts by the children, who use an invented technological slang. The book incorporates areas of physics and was written with the assistance of the author's cousin, Claude Brooke, a physicist to whom Brooke-Rose was briefly married from 1981 to 1982. In Verbivore, a sequel, the now grown children must deal with Xorandor's descendents, whose activities have caused a failure of electronic communications media. Textermination, about the gathering of hundreds of recognizable literary characters at a Convention of Prayer for Being, deals with the advent of a semi-literate popular culture.

As a translator, Brooke-Rose is best known for In the Labyrinth (1968), an English translation of Alain Robbe-Grillet's Dans le labyrinth and winner of the 1969 Arts Council Translation Prize.

As a literary critic, Brooke-Rose is best known for her two studies of Ezra Pound, A ZBC of Ezra Pound (1971) and A Structural Analysis of Pound's Usura Canto: Jakobson's Method Extended and Applied to Free Verse (1976). A Grammar of Metaphor (1958), a critical study of English poets, was an outgrowth of her doctoral work at University College. A Rhetoric of the Unreal (1981) is a collection of essays analyzing narrative techniques in various types of fiction, while Stories, Theories, and Things (1991) contains essays of structural analyses of literary texts and general discussions of issues in literary theory.

Now retired from teaching, Christine Brooke-Rose lives in the south of France. The Brooke-Rose collection was purchased by the HRHRC in 1992. More information about Christine Brooke-Rose and her work may be found in the Dictionary of Literary Biography, vol. 14, pp. 124-129.

Scope and Contents

The Brooke-Rose papers consist of original and carbon copy typescripts, holograph manuscripts, computer printouts, notebooks, correspondence, clippings, galley proofs, original and photocopy page proofs, offprints, documents, printed genealogies, publishing contracts, royalty statements, and family papers, ranging in date from 1893 to 1992 (bulk 1957-92). The material is arranged in five series: Works (1897-1992, 14 boxes), Reviews (1955-92, 1.5 boxes), Correspondence (1956-91, 3.5 boxes), Personal/Family (1893-1979, 1 box), and Computer Printouts (1986-89, 1 box). The Works series is arranged in three subseries: Books, Essays, and Poetry. The Reviews series is divided into two subseries: Reviews by Christine Brooke-Rose and Reviews of Works by Christine Brooke-Rose. The Correspondence series has two subseries: Business Correspondence and Personal Correspondence.

All of Brooke-Rose's major works are represented in some form. Many early versions of works are present, and these often reveal original titles. In the folder list, the discarded titles of works are indicated with quotation marks, and the final titles are italicized. Where Brooke-Rose had labeled varying versions of manuscripts, those labels are retained and indicated in the folder list with single quotation marks. In keeping with Brooke-Rose's tendency toward chronological order, works and personal/family papers have also been arranged in chronological order. Reviews and correspondence remain in the chronological order established by Brooke-Rose.

Most of the correspondence is incoming correspondence from publishers, agents, editors, friends, colleagues, and students. Among the correspondents are Brigid Brophy, Frank Kermode, Peter du Sautoy, Muriel Spark, Raleigh Trevelyan, and Michael Westlake. All correspondents are included in the Index of Correspondents.

Among the personal and family materials in the collection are documents and correspondence relating to Brooke-Rose's education, career, wartime service, marriages, and divorces.

Atari computer disks that were received with the collection have been reformatted to Macintosh's operating system. The texts of the files were compared with manuscripts already present in the collection; when the texts differed, the computer files were printed. These printouts are grouped together by computer disk. Due to the computer reformatting, margins, fonts, and some diacritics are not the way they appeared on Brooke-Rose's original disks.

Brooke-Rose's personal copies of her books, anthologies containing her work, offprints, and periodicals containing her work have been withdrawn from the collection and cataloged with the Center's book holdings. Some copies are signed or annotated by Brooke-Rose.

Series Descriptions

 

Series I. Works, n.d., 1897-1992
(14 boxes)

The series is divided into three subseries: Books, Essays, and Poetry.
The Books subseries, arranged chronologically by title, consists of original and carbon copy typescripts, holograph manuscripts, printouts, notebooks, printed genealogies, documents, clippings, correspondence, offprints, and original and photocopy page proofs. All of Brooke-Rose's major works are represented in some form. She wrote her first drafts by hand, usually in a notebook, before typing successive drafts, and many of these heavily revised early versions are present in the collection. Early versions of several works reveal their original titles: The Dear Deceit was previously titled "A Chronicle of Wasted Time" and "Ultraviolet"; Thru was originally titled "Textermination"; Amalgamemnon was titled "Soon"; Xorandor was titled "The Alpha Guys"; and A ZBC of Ezra Pound was titled "Timing the Thunder: A Critical Introduction to Ezra Pound." In the folder list, discarded titles of works are indicated with quotation marks, while the final titles are in upper-case letters. Where Brooke-Rose had labeled varying versions of manuscripts, those labels are retained and indicated in the folder list with single quotation marks.
Heavily revised holograph manuscripts of The Languages of Love and The Sycamore Tree are present. The origins of The Dear Deceit, which was based upon the life of Brooke-Rose's father, can be traced in early correspondence with her aunt, Dorothy Gordon-Forbes. Brooke-Rose conducted intensive research on her family history and on period books, clothing, and events; the resulting correspondence, notes, drawings, and clippings are present. Also included are notes about people on whom the characters are based and correspondence from family members and others in response to the book. Family documents and papers, including a journal her father kept and poems he wrote, are included in the `family' research file. A chronological account of research documents the author's efforts in writing the book.
Among manuscripts of The Middlemen are two versions of "Serena's Alter Ego," a short story that became the basis of the book. Between contains ten languages, and notes and correspondence regarding linguistics are present, as is correspondence with Eva Hesse about German passages in the manuscript.
Notable among Xorandor manuscripts are an early, very different version in holograph form, titled "The Alpha Guys," and lists of the slang vocabulary Brooke-Rose invented for the book. Notes for Verbivore include correspondence from friends with suggestions regarding language and scientific accuracy. A notebook with a holograph manuscript of Verbivore also contains a draft essay on "aesthetics" in which Brooke-Rose discusses her writing. Among the notes for Textermination are lists of characters, including an oversized chapter-by-chapter breakdown of characters, a list of "Americanisms" (American slang), and correspondence concerning copyrights.
The second subseries is comprised of manuscripts of essays by Christine Brooke-Rose, arranged in the order she had established. The essays include "Ezra Pound: Piers Plowman in the Modern Waste Land,""Dynamic Gradients,""A for But: 'The Custom House' in Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter,""Notes on the Metre of Auden's 'The Age of Anxiety,'""The American Literary Scene: Writers in Search of Community," and copies of Brooke-Rose's "Letter from Paris" column in The Spectator. Proof pages of "Notes on the Metre of Auden's 'The Age of Anxiety'" are accompanied by a letter from F. W. Bateson, editor of the journal Essays in Criticism.
The third subseries consists of poetry manuscripts dating from 1946 to 1959 and remains in the order kept by Christine Brooke-Rose. In addition to typescripts and holograph manuscripts of such poems as "The Island of Reil" (in successive versions), "Impressions & Epigrams," and "To My Mother, Taking the Veil," there are tearsheets from Botteghe Oscure and printed copies of some poems. A holograph manuscript of "Confiteor," in the hand of Brooke-Rose, is attributed to Jerzy Peterkiewicz.

Series III. Correspondence, 1956-91
(3.5 boxes)

The third series is divided into two subseries, Business Correspondence and Personal Correspondence, and preserves Brooke-Rose's filing arrangement, although correspondence from a single correspondent may be found in both categories.
The first subseries includes contracts, royalty statements, and letters from publishers, agents, and editors, with some photocopy and printout replies from Brooke-Rose, all arranged in reverse chronological order. Included in letters from publishers is correspondence between Brooke-Rose and Michael Schmidt at Carcanet discussing manuscript changes, book design, promotion, and other issues and reflecting the ups and downs of their relationship. Also present with the letters are some proof pages of Xorandor.
The second subseries contains mainly incoming personal correspondence, with occasional copies of Brooke-Rose's replies, arranged in reverse chronological order. While Brooke-Rose's division of 'personal letters' and 'miscellaneous and personal letters re own work' has been maintained, both files contain letters discussing her work. In addition, letters from a single correspondent may be scattered throughout the entire series. For information about the location of letters by a single correspondent, see the Index of Correspondents. Among correspondents are Brigid Brophy, Bernard Hoepffner, Frank Kermode, Richard Martin, Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan, Peter du Sautoy, Olga Scherer, Muriel Spark, Raleigh Trevelyan, and Michael Westlake. Letters from Jean Alington Howard discuss Brooke-Rose's work as an intelligence officer at Bletchley Park during World War II. Letters from Eva Hesse, who was Ezra Pound's German translator, date from 1964-84, and letters from Mary de Rachewiltz, Pound's daughter, date from 1967-89. Correspondence from Jerzy Peterkiewicz cover the years of their separations, reconciliations, and divorce.

Series IV: Family/Personal, 1893-1979
(1 box)

The fourth series, Family/Personal, contains Brooke-Rose's personal papers as well as papers of family members. Some of this material is similar to the family research file Brooke-Rose developed while writing The Dear Deceit.
A 1932-33 notebook of Flemish language exercises from Brooke-Rose's schooldays in Brussels contains a letter she wrote to her grandmother. Papers documenting Brooke-Rose's education include school certificates and letters of reference from teachers. Among career and wartime service papers are letters of reference from a teacher, a supervisor, and a commanding officer, and letters from Rodney Bax regarding post-war credit vouchers. Citizenship documents consist of a National Health Service medical card, a 1950 letter from the Nationality Division of the Home Office, and an oversized certificate of identity with a photograph and personal data.
Also present are documents and correspondence from Rodney Bax and church officials regarding the annulment of Brooke-Rose's first marriage. Other documents include copies of Brooke-Rose's 1967 and 1976 wills, documents from Brooke-Rose's divorce from Jerzy Peterkiewicz, and a photocopy of the deed of Peterkiewicz' name change from Pietrkiewicz. Statutory declarations/estate settlements include exhibits from the estate claims and settlements of Alfred N. Rose and Alice Brooke Savedge: Brooke-Rose's birth, marriage, and divorce certificates, her mother's birth certificate, her parents' marriage certificate, her father's death certificate, and her sister's birth certificate.
Although Brooke-Rose destroyed most of the correspondence from her estranged sister, Doriel, the `Doriel File' does contain letters from family and friends discussing Doriel, as well as one remaining letter from Doriel to the author. Papers relating to Evelyn Brooke-Rose, Christine Brooke-Rose's mother, include a certificate of baptism, George Brooke's certificate of naturalization, and the marriage banns of Evelyn Brooke and Alfred N. Rose. Also present is a childhood notebook Evelyn and her sisters wrote, titled "The Jo's Club Paper" and influenced by Little Women.

Series V: Computer Printouts, 1986-89
(1 box)

Several Atari computer disks were acquired with the collection, a system to which HRC does not have ready access. To enable staff to determine whether the files on the disks were duplicates of manuscripts already present in the collection in hard copy, the information was converted to Microsoft Word for the Macintosh. The files were then checked against the collection, and printouts were made of the files, primarily chapters of Verbivore and Textermination with some accompanying correspondence, that were not already present. The original margins, fonts, and some of the diacritics were altered during the reformatting, but no other changes were made. The folder list indicates the titles of the computer files. Brooke-Rose's Atari and Adler computer disks, along with the reformatted copies made at the HRC, are located at the end of the series.
