Wild Dreams Of A New Beginning

Poetry by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Wild Dreams of a New Beginning brings together two acclaimed poetry volumes by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, one of our “ageless radicals and true bards” (Booklist). Who Are We Now? (1976), the first half of Wild Dreams, takes a long poetic look at the cultural fallout of a more radical time. This probing of the changes in the American psyche through the 1970s is carried forward in the second part, Landscapes of Living & Dying (1979)––a work originally hailed by Library Journal as “Ferlinghetti’s strongest work since his 1957 A Coney Island of the Mind …. [He] pursues his disheveled muse with the innocent passion of a young beatnik, hiding his authentic erudition behind a comfortable guise of spontaneous composition.”
