9780070232952: Allen Verbatim: Lectures on Poetry, Politics, Consciousness

FROM BACK COVER: "This book's a record of a series of 'Cross-country Exchanges, Talks Lectures, Rhapsodies' undertaken by Allen Ginsberg. In a tour of the United States - from Washington, D.C., through Kent State and the Midwest, to California. In a variety of settings, Ginsberg talks directly with 'Fellow Poets, Students, Scholars, Sadhus' - a vast constituency of the young and old who see in his 'mind practiced spontaneity' a realistic an d good-humored escape from the 'prison of conditioning.' For those interested in contemporary American poetry, Allen Verbatim is a valuable resource - offering Ginsberg's own views on prosody as well as rich insights into the works of other poets... In addition, Ginsberg recounts some of his early visionary and mystical experiences and explores the interrelationships of government, big business, and the military as expressed in the devastation of the environment and the international traffic in heroin..."
