    and yes, i read my ferlinghetti this evening!

  3. Just wanted to say thanks again slynne.
    I didn’t find any Ferlinghetti in my bookshop
    but I did find a whole load of other poets and I bought 8 new poetry books.
    And I found one by Sharon Olds that I hadn’t see before. Ah, exploration is a wonderful thing.

  4. I’m glad you found good thinks while out there looking, Zaphod. To explore a little for free, you should also check out poets.org. Which Olds book was it?

    Emily, what Ferlinghetti poems did you read? I love him. He is my favorite of the poets he ran with.

    i’ve always been partial to ginsberg, personally.

    i read “in goya’s greatest scenes…”, and “sometime during eternity” (which I love), and “people getting divorced” and “retired ballerinas, central park west”. that’s what’s in my big anthology, which i paid for in college 😉 and therefore am obliged to love!
