Allen Ginsberg #1

Allen Ginsberg, 1950s

 

 

“When newspapers the world over, and writers like Hemingway, began to campaign for his release in 1957,  Allen (Ginsberg), who had just become famous with Howl, joined the chorus. Ezra was finally released, as his doctor insisted he was permanently insane.”

Gregory Corso

“(Corso) found his way here one summer. I don’t remember exactly the year. (…) He had already published a couple of books but was going through a difficult period in his life. He was not the easiest man to be around, could become rather aggressive.”

 

Heart of Harlem

In the Heart of Harlem – cartoon from the collection of Langston Hughes

 

“(Canada had) just bought a penthouse on Edgecombe avenue, and it had become one of the party centres of the city, at least of Harlem. Something was going on there every night. I met so many people there… Most striking was Langston Hughes. He even wrote a poem once, celebrating those nights.”
