Download Ferlinghetti Who are We Now? (A New Directions book) epub

by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

A near fine copy rather than fine because of normal age-toning to paper with no outstanding areas that are obviously aged. Just has that slightly aged appearance. In a very good jacket because of edgwear and rubs on the back panel.

Ferlinghetti is still effervescent in this 1976 book. Beat poetry had gotten mature and perhaps a bit long in the tooth by then--something he seems to hint at in his "Populist Manifesto." But he remains a savvy critic of the "petroleum civilization" and can paint great scenes, wrenching you in a dizzying manner from one to another. Some poems are rich with lyrical imagery ("A Vast Confusion", "Insurgent Mexico"), others with humor ("We have seen the best minds of our generation destroyed by boredom at poetry readings").
Musical Aura Island
After reading the first two poems in this book: Jack of Hearts and Director of Alienation, I was absolutely hooked on Ferlinghetti, Beat literature, and poetry in general. I would definately recomend it to a unpoetic yokel and an experienced poet... and all the in-betweens. The observations put forth in this publication are priceless.
