Ginsberg Injection
Nightly Dose of Ginsberg

After 24 years, the video of Allen Ginsberg's legendary appearance at Loyola University New Orleans is now online. The overflow crowd filled up all the aisles and the outside lobby, so he invited audience members to sit on the stage with him. He also did a meditation workshop, and his Collected Poems had just appeared so he spent a whole afternoon signing copies and illustrating each with a drawing. Thanks to Alyce Santoro for helping make this video available. Thanks to Andrei Codrescu for encouraging Allen to come. And above all, we remember with gratitude Allen Ginsberg for his genius and generosity.

 
Barry Miles and Allen Ginsberg In the Kitchen

In Allen's kitchen on East 12th Street. I have a great memory of Miles typing at the kitchen table while Allen looked over his shoulder. Great working conditions! I don't know how he did it. Its a heart warming patriotic shot.

Narlan Matos translated by Sally Perret

by Narlan Matos

Translation is, ideally, a buddhist exercise in ego-shedding. Practically, it's ego-boosting from a dead writer. Sometimes it's a mix. And sometimes it's about what it's about. Which in the case of poetry is never the case.
