Lawrence gets you laughing then hits you with the truth.

—Francis Ford Coppola

Lawrence Ferlinghetti was the herald of a new age in poetry. He’d learned to write poems in ways that those who see poetry as the province of the few and educated had never imagined. That strength has turned out to be lasting.
