Lezingen van Allen Ginsberg over Engelse poëzie (1975)

november 21, 2011

Allen Ginsberg over Shelley:

“There’s nobody in English poesy who was so overt, so far-out, so flipped out, so open, so unspeakably enthusiastic, so completely given to his inspiration. So Shelley is the angel poet in that sense, because his head is the most transparent and purely luminous of all the poets. Later on in the 19th Century, there are a lot of more mature, duller, souls, who didn’t have the same transcendental insight as Shelley.” (zie The Allen Ginsberg Project)
