Sort order. Dec 16, Cherie rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. A This bio of Ginsberg by his bibliographer is just terrific--it includes people I know Steven Taylor, Rose, Anne, amongst others and is just fascinating! I couldn't put it down and I love Allen so much more than I did before. I was so sad when he wrote about Allen's death.

Oct 23, Frederic rated it really liked it. I'd rather read about Ginsberg than read his work but he seems to have had exactly the life he wanted and it made him happy A comprehensive and well written account of the life of American Poet Allen Ginsberg.

As Ginsberg's bibliographer and archivist for almost 20 years, Bill Morgan became quite close to him. His familiarity with his subject makes it fitting he should write the life, or a life. The use of the word is deliberate. Fred Anderson, in a recent review, wrote of distinguishing history as studies or stories. I suppose it could apply to biography as well. This is the story of Ginsberg's life rather than a As Ginsberg's bibliographer and archivist for almost 20 years, Bill Morgan became quite close to him.

This is the story of Ginsberg's life rather than a study of the man or his work. And as such it's more of a public life than a private one. Morgan tells us little that we didn't already know; though the title hints at surprises, there are few here. The book is a catalogue of trips, places visited, people seen and known.

It's what Ginsberg did. However, Morgan gives us scant insight into why he did what he did and why he wrote what he wrote. It's all neatly done, too. Each chapter covers a year of Ginsberg's life. Want to know what Allen was doing when you started college or when your first child was born? It's easy to align your activities with his. One interesting facet of the biography is that in the margins Morgan has included references to the poetry which was inspired by the biographical events.

Not surprisingly, I found Ginsberg's poetic reflections on what he was experiencing much more interesting than Morgan's descriptions. I realize it's a labor of love, just as Ginsberg lived his life. Morgan says in his "Forward" that Ginsberg's story is a love story which began with a love of himself. He learned it from Whitman, who accepted himself and lived in acceptance of everyone else.

Nov 03, Gregory Frye rated it it was amazing. I read this biography in tandem with the collected poems ''97, the works and their pages numbers are annotated along side the text in Bill Morgan's thorough book.

st-bernhard-wol.de/modules/2019-09-17/2049-base-mein-handy.php So to have read all Ginsberg in biographical context is an extraordinary gift to me, and I don't think I would have been able to appreciate his work so much without the biography. Needless to say, the reading was a massive study that took a long time. I just finished and am still trying to process everything. If you're a fan of free I read this biography in tandem with the collected poems ''97, the works and their pages numbers are annotated along side the text in Bill Morgan's thorough book. If you're a fan of free verse, playful words, colorful mind language, then Ginsberg is worth it.

Not all the poems are good, especially toward the end, but at least worth a read. The biography is also a worthy study of anybody interested in the Beat Generation. Sure Kerouac was the face of the literary movement, but not by choice. Ginsberg was the true advocate of the Beats, and there is so much adventure here, especially the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Morgan does a fantastic job at capturing the rise and development of one of America's greatest poets.
