Analysis and comments on Plutonian Ode by Allen Ginsberg

Comment 2 of 2, added on October 27th, 2008 at 12:21 PM.

I know this is very, very late, but someone else may benefit.

There is an *absolutely* wonderful recording of it. Look for Philip Glass'
symphony no. 6. There are two discs - one with a soprano reading it, and
the second disc (by far my favorite of the two) contains Ginsburg reading
the poem over the same music. The soprano is in the
background...thankfully.

Why is it so difficult to find an audio recording of Ginsberg's reading of
this precious poem?
