About this product
- DescriptionRainy night on Union Square, full moon. Want more poems? Wait till I m dead.Allen Ginsberg, August 8, 1990, 3:30 A.M. The first new Ginsberg collection in over fifteen years, Wait Till I m Dead is a landmark publication, edited by rewned Ginsberg scholar Bill Morgan and introduced by award-winning poet and Ginsberg enthusiast Rachel Zucker. Ginsberg wrote incessantly for more than fifty years, often composing poetry on demand, and many of the poems collected in this volume were scribbled in letters or sent off to obscure publications and unjustly forgotten. Wait Till I m Dead, which spans the whole of Ginsberg s long writing career, from the 1940s to the 1990s, is a testament to Ginsberg s astonishing writing and singular aesthetics. Following the chrology of his life, Wait Till I m Dead reproduces the poems together with extensive tes. Containing 104 previously uncollected poems and accompanied by original photographs, Wait Till I m Dead is the final major contribution to Ginsberg s sprawling oeuvre, a must-read for Ginsberg neophytes and longtime fans alike.
