Synopses & Reviews
Lawrence Ferlinghetti's contains blasts, blessings, and curses in the vortex of today, taking its cues from the original little magazine, Blast, published by Wyndham Lewis with Ezra Pound in 1914-15 that helped create the modernist movement in literature and the visual arts. In these fearless new poems, Ferlinghetti, America's everyman bard, speaks for the poor, the forgotten, the beaten, and the bombed.
A new, shorter collection by America's preeminent living poet and social activist, who is just as fiery and provocative as ever at 94 years old.
