Allen Ginsberg at Cheltenham Literature Festival (1993)

By Cheltenham Festivals

To celebrate 70 years of bringing the world's greatest writers and brightest minds to Cheltenham, we've scoured our incredible archive in search of some seminal moments. We're bringing audio from past events to life to showcase the heritage and history of the Festival. We're thrilled to reveal a podcast from the 1993 archive featuring American poet, philosopher, writer and considered to be one of the leading figures of the Beat Generation, Allen Ginsberg. This podcast features two distinct halves: the first half, Allan speaks with John Calder about the Beat Generation and the second half concludes with Allan reading poetry with musical accompaniment. The work of Allen Ginsberg © Allen Ginsberg, LLC. All rights reserved. Allen Ginsberg’s Selected Poems is published by Penguin Modern Classics.
