  1. I never “got” Ginsberg. It’s great that you published Do Not Go Gentle Into that Good Night. Of course, everyone interprets it in their own way.Report

    Ginsberg is more generationally appealing than universal, or timeless, The beat period was a specific time and place which has not translated well through the decades. What it’s portrayed as today is a caricature which makes me a little sad.

    In a sense the supermarket is appropos for a Whitman poem, as he attempted to consume the world. I’m not sure another poet will ever be as large, as bigger than life, as was Whitman.Report
