Ferlinghetti, the elder maverick of American poetry, “lights out for the territories” with Book I of his epic, “Americus.” Describing his work as “part documentary, part public pillow-talk, part personal epic,” Ferlinghetti combines “universal texts, snatches of song, words or phrases, murmuring of love or hate, from Lotte Lenya to the latest soul singer, sayings from Yogi Berra to the National Anthem, the Gettysburg Address or the Ginsberg Address, that haunt our nocturnal imagination.” This work breaks fertile ground in the grand tradition of Walt Whitman, W.C. Williams, Charles Olson, & Ezra Pound, as Ferlinghetti cruises our literary & political landscapes, past & present, to articulate the unique voice of America & create an autobio. of American consciousness.
