Beat humour and poetics... Lennie Bruce...Lawrence Ferlinghetti...Gregory Corso...
It was my birthday yesterday so here's some beat generation fun and games. Three from Lennie Bruce including the hilarious and still controversial 'How to relax your coloured friends at parties.' Plus a couple of poets – Lawrence Ferlinghetti who was somewhat overshadowed by Ginsberg and the second poet here – Gregory Corso.
