Kerouac and Burroughs were older, no longer in school, experimenting with drugs, and trying to write. Ginsberg later said they encouraged him to think for himself and to worry less about conforming. When he was 28, he moved to San Francisco, where he was introduced to the poetry scene by Kenneth Rexroth, and he began working on a poem that would later be called "Howl," a poem in which the length of a line was based on how much he could say in one breath.

Today it is one of the most recognized poems in literature and has sold nearly one million copies. Ginsberg read a draft of "Howl" at the now-famous Six Gallery, on an October night in Another poet who was there that night said the crowd left "standing in wonder, or cheering and wondering, but knowing at the deepest level that a barrier had been broken, that a human voice and body had been hurled against the harsh wall of America Howl and Other Poems was published the following year ; one year later, the publisher and the manager of a bookstore who sold the collection to a couple of undercover cops stood trial for obscenity.

Most of the country had never heard of Allen Ginsberg, but the huge sensation the trial caused — including a story in Life magazine— ensured that they would. Other poets, critics, and scholars testified on the poem's behalf, explaining for the judge how and why the work was ificant.

The judge returned a landmark ruling, noting that although he himself was a "God-fearing Sunday school teacher," he recognized that the poem had redeeming social importance. He wrote: "Would there be any freedom of press or speech if one must reduce his vocabulary to vapid innocuous euphemism? I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machin- ery of night.

It's the birthday of Larry McMurtry books by this authorborn just outside of Wichita Falls, Texasand raised in the nearby town of Archer City. He came from three generations of ranchers. McMurtry wrote historical novels, like Lonesome Dovealthough he strongly resists romanticizing the Old West and doesn't hold a very high opinion of cowboys in general.

Still, through all his success as a writer — including some fame when many of his books, like Terms of Endearment and The Last Picture Showbecame popular movies — McMurtry began to see writing as his vocation and hunting for rare and valuable books as his real passion. He opened a used bookstore in Washington D.

And then, nearly 40 years after he'd left, he returned to Archer City determined to make it into a book-lover's destination. But this August, the store will host an enormous public auction ofbooks, and downsize to just one building. It's the birthday of the writer who put sex in the romance novel: Kathleen Woodiwiss books by this authorborn Kathleen Erin Hogg in Alexandria, Louisiana She submitted her first novel to eight publishers and was rejected by them all — until an editor at Avon picked her manuscript up off the slush pile and couldn't put it down.

Although romance novels had existed since the s, and historical romance novels had been around since the s, Woodiwiss became famous for following her characters into the bedroom. Romances until then had relied mostly on chaste kisses or sly euphemisms, but Woodiwiss wrote explicit descriptions of sex. She also featured strong willed women that went against the damsel-in-distress prototype.

The success of her book, The Flame and the Flower transformed the genre and was the first romance novel to be published first in paperback rather than hardcover. Sunday Jun. Today's poem is available in audio form only. I've never quite believed that one chance is all I get. Writing is my way of making other chances. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way. Writing is not only useless, it's spoiled paper.

You can't stop it. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one's luck. All Rights Reserved. Terms and Conditions Privacy Policy.
