Description

Rainy night on Union Square, full moon. Want more poems? Wait till Im dead.Allen Ginsberg, August 8, 1990, 3:30 A.M.The first new Ginsberg collection in over fifteen years, Wait Till Im Dead is a landmark publication, edited by renowned 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 Im Dead, which spans the whole of Ginsbergs long writing career, from the 1940s to the 1990s, is a testament to Ginsbergs astonishing writing and singular aesthetics.Following the chronology of his life, Wait Till Im Dead reproduces the poems together with extensive notes. Containing 104 previously uncollected poems and accompanied by original photographs, Wait Till Im Dead is the final major contribution to Ginsbergs sprawling oeuvre, a must-read for Ginsberg neophytes and longtime fans alike.
