Next up—Beat Poetry

Allen Ginsberg

Allen Ginsberg

We had a nice discussion last week about Chekov and several of his short stories. Our next reading selection is a bit open, but with a theme. We will be reading Beat poetry. You might try the following poets:

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Jack Kerouac

Allen Ginsberg

William S. Burroughs

Gary Snyder (my favorite)

Gregory Corso

Kenneth Rexroth

Henry Miller

Norman Mailer

There are quite a few Beat poetry anthologies on Amazon. Feel free also to bring some of your own work to read.

I’m not sure yet when we will meet again as I have a pretty full summer. Stay tuned.
