-- Table of Poems from Poem Finder®

Kaufman was active as a poet from the 1950s through the 80s, joining others in the rising poetry scenes of San Francisco and Yew York. This provides the only major collection available of his classic works, including texts of out of print poems as well as ones which were produced shortly before his death in 1986. Essential for any Kaufman or beat poet reader. -- Midwest Book Review

From Booklist:

In the introduction to this gathering of typically idiosyncratic, typically beat poems, a writer-activist says that Kaufman (1925^-86) "was actually the man that Herb Caen [San Francisco's famous gossip columnist] coined the term `Beatnik' to describe." Kaufman was black and well self-educated, a former merchant mariner who became a poet and thereafter never held a job, a permanent revolutionary in politics as well as culture, a formidable partyer who got himself eighty-sixed out of most of the bars in San Francisco's bohemian North Beach neighborhood, a Buddhist who (penitentially?) gave up talking for years until the U.S. got out of Vietnam, and a very public poet who ran down busy streets and hopped on cars to scream out his poems. His inspirations were primarily revolution, black consciousness, and jazz. His poetic manner was almost always surrealist: his work abounds with the surprising and incongruous, and often it doesn't make much sense. But the poems about jazz can be sweet and cool, and they will probably last. Ray Olson
