As he comes to the world, at the end of March 1919, the First world war to the end, and in Russia a civil war broke out. In the same year, the victorious powers to advise in Versailles, the reparation payments from Germany. The Mexican rebel Emiliano Zapata is killed, and the us Congress prepares for the women's right to vote.
Also, for the small Lawrence, on 24. March 1919, in the city of Yonkers in New York state, born, the life is eventful. The father died before his birth, at birth, he is separated from his mother and grows up, first at his aunt, who brings him to France and then back to New York. Lawrence Ferlinghetti will be housed in homes, and finally from an older, rich Couple adopted her. He studied in New York and Paris, doctoral degree later on the city as a Symbol of modern poetry, works as a Journalist, fighting for the allies in the Second world war, published poetry and founded in 1953 in San Francisco, the City Lights Bookstore, the epicenter of liberal thought in America.
The book store until today. He has some fucked-up, dust and paper smell, rustling atmosphere, as it is the best book of acts.
Although Ferlinghetti is not to be understood as a Beat Poet, he supports the literary, Jazz-inspired, the oral storytelling tradition, inspired movement, authors such as William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac or Allen Ginsberg.
Back, and almost blind
in 1956, Ferlinghetti Ginsberg's poem "Howl, published" with the famous first lines: "I saw the best minds of my Generation destroyed by madness, emaciated hysterical naked, as in the dawn by the Negroes dragged the streets looking for an angry shot."
The Text is considered a criminal offence, is obscene. Ferlinghetti is arrested and in a process through the American freedom of expression. Ferlinghetti, defines his political stance as a "philosophical anarchy" wins the process and is famous. His shortly afterwards, published a collection of poems, "A Coney Island of the Mind" sold over a Million copies.
For some time the publisher is reclusive and is almost blind. He receives journalists, but still the Interviews and is known to go to any interview out of the way. Recently, he has released "Little Boy", surrealistic decomposed memoirs, by some as a petulant Testament described. The Text is in the use of structure and punctuation is idiosyncratic, as he gernhat it. With all the vitality of the 100-Year-old does not believe, however, that in his home a Revolution is possible: "The United States is not ready for it," he said in an interview with the "Guardian".
If he was proud of his performance, ask him the Journalist recently. The word is him being selfish. In the same way as the present Generation, for prisoner I, I holds in the "I," and in the "glorification of the capitalist system". He is not the quiet.
