Format: Paperback
Ferlinghetti has a nice lightness of touch, a real lyric poet.He creates vivid pictures in the mind's eye with a musical touch to his phrases, as in this section from "Paris Transformations": "In the closed dark bedroom/with the heavy silk drapes/she throws open/the huge French doors/And the dry white wine of dawn/floods in."

I bought this book after seeing Ferlinghetti speak at my
school in New Hampshire. He was fantastic, and his book is
even more so.
Buy it!

By M. P. Newman on 18 Feb. 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is poetry both lyrical and strident, turn by turn. I can hear the world of Dylan Thomas shifted to America, but also the rhythms of composers such as Aaron Copeland. Exciting stuff.

Total Bliss... 21 Dec. 1998
By Matt Norris (Lamplips@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This collection of poems from Ferlinghetti opens the mind due to it's variation of poems from over the years. His style has remained the same yet we see a different side of Ferlinghetti with each era of poems. This was very enjoyable and I recommend it highly.

The Buddha in the Poet 14 May 2007
By Michael P. Crowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The new poems that begin this collection are wonderful; the voice is strong and sure with rich, fresh images and allusions that explode in all kinds of directions. the poems give me a chance to say, "Oh, I get that." or most of it.

I haven't gotten to the selected poems from all of his books, but I know it will be fun to read poems I haven't read in years.

This volume should be a must read for young rebels and writers; should be right up there on the shelf with On The Road and Howl

Nice collection of Lawrence Ferlinghetti's work from nearly 4 decades 7 Dec. 2014
By Michael J Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was first introduced to Lawrence Ferlinghetti as a senior in HS in 1967 and I was able to pass this love onto one of my daughters during a visit to San Francisco and City Lights bookstore. This book is a nice collection of LF's spanning nearly 4 decades and still pertinent and enjoyable today.
