Philip Lamantia on Poetry, with a reading by Bob Kaufman

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 51 min
Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA

A scholarly lecture by Philip Lamantia on poetry, philosophy, and language. At times quite technical, this is a fascinating talk on the underlying structures and assumed principles behind poetry. Born in San Francisco in 1927 Lamantia blended the spiritual and erotic in his poetry, and was a part of the San Francisco Renaissance poets active in the post World War II years. Later he was later associated with the Beat Generation, and he shared the bill with Allen Ginsberg at the Six Gallery when the younger poet first read his masterpiece “Howl”. Lamantia died in 2005. The end of this program also includes a reading by Bob Kaufman, of a number of unidentified poems.
