About this Item

In 1967 writer and musician Frank Lauria was an editor for Bantam Books and contacted Ginsberg attempting to secure a Collected Poems. Ginsberg replies that he already has arrangements with Grove Press and Cape for a Collected Poems, and that there would be a Penguin paperback edition. None of this ever happened. This letter was written on the day of the incorporation of Cape Goliard which would publish Ginsberg's "T.V. Baby Poems" in September, 1967, and three days before Ginsberg's LSD experience during which he wrote "Wales - Visitation". Ginsberg says he can think about what he might offer when he returns to New York. He was "too preoccupied" to return Lauria's phone call, but suggests that he contact Sterling Lord regarding Jack Kerouac's unpublished works: "Some of the Dharma" and the "complete 450 pp" "Visions of Cody".
