scottedelman: Does anyone know whether Ray Nelson ever wrote about the four years he lived in Paris during the '50s, during which he met Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, William Burroughs, Jean Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and others? If there's a memoir out there, I'd love to read it.

venepoetics: “The cloaked Poe lived by night crossed a bridge and looked at his face gigantically down in the sea below— His day lacked electricity yet he held an agate lamp in hand. Poets should live as phantoms, reclusive like Emily D.” (Gregory Corso)

YouAreTheExpert: from Marriage by Gregory Corso: for Jim DeSalvo wherever he might be who is probably reciting the entire poem in some bar to anyone drunk enough to listen as I listened as we all listened so many centuries ago

gattofritto: “[Gregory Corso] tells me to remember: poetry is the opposite of hypocrisy. [...] Hypocrisy’s not the problem, I think, it’s allegory the breeding ground of paranoia. The act of reading into—how does one know when to stop?” Dodie Bellamy, The Letters of Mina Harker, 1998.

shelleyscholar: Shelleyan 50 Gregory Corso (1930–2001). The Beat poet's ashes rest beneath Shelley's in the Protestant Cemetery, Rome. Shelley was one of Corso's Revolutionary Spirits. 'I Held a Shelley Manuscript', one of the lesser poems by a Shelleyan, is doubtlessly sincere & oddly moving.

poemakontsa: A brilliant metaphor for Time (and I am obsessed with metaphors about Time) I just found in the unlikely Gregory Corso: Time a long long long dog having chased its orbited tail

jmasseypoet: Holding back tears in a coffee shop as I read Gregory Corso’s The Golden Dot, a long poem that preoccupied his last years. The manuscript was thrown in a grocery bag when he died in 2001 and left to rot in a closet. Real poets suffer these indignities, the rest get tenure.

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Le Vampire
 by Charles Baudelaire

Toi qui, comme un coup de couteau,
Dans mon coeur plaintif es entrée;
Toi qui, forte comme un troupeau
De démons, vins, folle et parée,

De mon esprit humilié
Faire ton lit et ton domaine;
-Infâme à qui je suis lié
