Anne Waldman & The Beats

Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20131018, 20110408

Prolific poet and winner of the 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship Award, Anne Waldman is younger than the Beat Generation, but she did know many of its prominent voices.  She talks about her life-long friendship with Allen Ginsberg, and their role in founding the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University.  This other half of the 2010 interview at the Associated Writing Programs conference features two poems from her PEN Center Literary Award winning collection, The Iovis Trilogy. It also features musical recordings by her son, Ambrose Bye, called Matching Half.
