Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
A sequel to "A Coney Island of the Mind", & written 40 years after the original in what Ferlinghetti has called "a poetry seizure" that lasted more than a year, this collection is a sequence of 101 related poems with recurrent themes. The author also thinks of it as a kind of caustic critique of modern poetry, including confrontations with or parodies of major figures in the literary avant-garde before the arrival of the Beat generation, notably Pound & Eliot, Beckett & Joyce. A self-styled "stand-up tragedian," Ferlinghetti has been called "the foremost chronicler of our times."
