"Printer's ink is the greatest explosive."?Lawrence Ferlinghetti Lawrence Ferlinghetti founded the City Lights publishing house sixty years ago in 1955, launching the press with his now legendary Pocket Poets Series. First in the series was Pictures of the Gone World?the only book of his own poems that Ferlinghetti would ever publish at City Lights. Within a year, he had brought out two more volumes, translations by Kenneth Rexroth and then poems by Kenneth Patchen. But it was the success and scandal of number four, Howl & Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg (1956), that put City Lights on the map, positioning the Pocket Poets Series at the forefront of the literary counterculture. A landmark sixtieth anniversary retrospective, this edition is a must-have collection, an invaluable distillation of the energetic, iconoclastic, and still fresh body of work represented in the ongoing series. Ferlinghetti has selected three poems from each of the sixty volumes, including the work of Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Gregory Corso, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Andrei Voznesensky, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Julio Cortázar, Frank O'Hara, Marie Ponsot, Denise Levertov, Diane di Prima, Robert Duncan, Phillip Lamantia, Malcolm Lowry, and many more of the Pocket Poets Series innovative, influential, and often groundbreaking American and international poets. Ferlinghetti provides a fresh introduction that looks back at the inspiration for the series, why certain poets were included, and who were the ones that got away. His behind-the-scenes, personal anecdotes provide priceless insights that shed new light on his vision and his editorial practices at a time when the Pocket Poets Series was shaping the contours of poetry's avant-garde.

Gui de Angulo brings together in this book the complete Taos papers of the legendary linguist, Jaime de Angulo, which tell the story of his life in the 1920s Taos where he stayed with Mabel Dodge and her Indian husband Tony Luhan. Told with the anthropologist's keen eye for social detail, it is a true story about the interconnecting worlds of Indians, social scientists, writers and bohemians. Angulo wanted to learn more about the religious philosophy and customs of the Taos and other pueblo Indians and to record their languages. He gives vivid impressions of pueblo life, comparing their culture with that of the Achumawi, the California Indians with whom he had lived. His journals and letters reveal much about that anguished time when Burke, controversial chief of the Bureau of Indian affairs, was trying to outlaw ceremonials, while anthropologists and others were rallying to their defense. Here too is the story of Angulo's part in bringing Carl Jung to America to meet the Indians, whom Jung felt could help him in the development of his psychoanalytic theory. Angulo's observations of D.H. Lawrence are astute, and often humorous. He sometimes found Lawrence "deep and keen and delightful," but at other times "ridiculous as only an Englishman can be ridiculous." Included in these papers is The Witch, a romantic, gothic novella set in Big Sur, which Angulo wrote on the first Taos visit and read aloud one evening to Lawrence, the Luhans and their friends--to a not unmixed response.
