Description

A million copies in print?translated into over adozen languages?one of the best-selling and most popularbooks of poetry ever published, now available in a new hardcoveredition containing a CD of the author reading his work. Ferlinghetti is a national treasure, and his voice hasbecome part of our collective conscience. Some of his most famouspoems from this collection such as I Am Waiting and Junkman'sObbligato were created for jazz accompaniment. Written in theconservative post-war 1950s, his poems still resonate, as they willcontinue to resonate, with a joyful anti-establishment fervor thatbeats a rhythmic portrait of humanity. Ferlinghetti sings of aworld in which the heart flops over / gasping 'Love', cadillacsfell thru the trees like rain, and where we are the same people /only further from home / on freeways fifty lanes wide. This special 50th Anniversary Edition comes with a newly recordedCD of the author reading the 29 poems of the title section of AConey Island of the Mind as well as selections fromPictures of the Gone World.
