Summary

The interviews collected in this volume -- chronologically arranged and is some cases previously unpublished -- were conducted throughout Allen Ginsberg's career. Always a witty and engaging subject, Ginsberg considered the interview an art form as well as an opportunity to express his ideas. In these interviews from the late 1950s to the mid-1990s, he speaks candidly about his poetry, his literary influences, his experimentation with drugs, and his personal life -- revealing details of his sexual affairs with fellow Beats like Jack Kerouac and his longtime relationship with Peter Orlovsky. Offering compelling new insight into this multigenerational icon, Spontaneous Mind is an important addition to the Ginsberg oeuvre.
