Geoffrey Young, 1993 - Poetry - 99 pages
0 Reviews
Nonfiction. In 113 short chapters, Ron Padgett's precision prose travels back over the twenty-five years of his close friendship with Ted Berrigan, the legendary poet whose life and work transformed a generation and whose death in 1983 at age forty-eight left a significant rent in the fabric of the American poetry scene. In crisp, clear verbal snapshots, Padgett recaptures the student years in Tulsa and the free-wheeling , scruffy enchantment of their lives in New York City in the early 1960's, a time of low rent and cheap meals, of foreign movies, of hero worship and budding friendships, of endless books and all-night talk-that once-only time when youth's energy is fueled by an intense love of art and poetry.
