Book Description New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 1967. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised edition. 198 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The long poems of Starting From San Francisco present a new, quieter, more profound aspect of the poet. His original lyricism and caustic humor have been confronted, as it were, with the real presence of evil and death. Starting from Paumanok. I strike up for a New World wrote Walt Whitman in 1860. Starting from San Francisco, a hundred years later, Ferlinghetti roved back across the country (this cradle we rocked out of ) then turned south of the border to visionary conclusions in that lost horizon symbolized by Machu Picchu, the Inca city the Spaniards never found. These poems of voyage are autobiographical in that they grew out of Ferlinghetti’s travels in South America and Europe, but there are also poems on other themes, including several long broadsides, which the author identifies as satirical tirades––poetry admittedly corrupted by the political, itself irradiated by the Thing it attacks. Commenting on this paperbook edition, to which two important poems, Berlin and The Situation in The West have been added, Ferlinghetti wrote: These poems represent to me a kind of halfway house in the ascent of a mountain I hardly knew existed until I stopped and looked back at the flatlands below. Like a Zen fool lost in the woods who laughs and lies face down on the earth to find his way. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780811200462

Book Description New Directions Publishing Corporation. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 64 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.3in. x 0.2in.Starting from San Francisco is a collection of poems by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, his third collection and fourth book, published in 1961. The hardcover edition included a short vinyl recording of Ferlinghetti reading some of his poems. The title is a reference to Walt Whitmans Starting from Paumanok: Ferlinghetti numbered himself among Whitmans wild children, and Whitmans influence is shown throughout the work. The poems are based mainly on a journey across the United States and a meditation on the Inca city of Machu Picchu, a photograph of which is shown on the cover. The poetry mingles tenderness with satire and hallucination. Scattered through the book is some of the better poetry generated by the San Francisco School. The poems are longer and more sustained than in his previous publications. They are more concerned with ideas than with verbal glitter, singing out boldly with great clarity. The poem Euphoria starts: As I approach the state of pure euphoriaI find I need a large size typewriter caseto carry my underwear inand scars on my conscienceare wounds imbedded inthe gum eraser of my skinwhich still erases itself. . . Perhaps the best known of the poems is The Great Chinese Dragon, although one critic says that the Remedial-English style of this poem makes one doubt that Ferlinghetti would ever be able to write poetry again. Gregory Stephenson, incorporating quotes from The Great Chinese Dragon, says the dragon . . . represents the force and mystery of life, the true sight that sees the spiritual everywhere translucent in the material world. Perhaps what Ferlinghetti wants his reader to do is to see the jazz music and the everyday images and the repetitive references to common culture found in his poems; and then see beyond them to the spiritual everywhere translucent. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780811200462
