Long live Man! sings the poet Gregory Corso--despite atom bombs and computers, cold wars that get hot and togetherness that isn't, too many cars and too little love...and in these poems he celebrates the wonders (and the laughs and griefs) of being a man alive. Whether he is musing on antic glories amid the ruins of the Acropolis or watching a New York child invent games on the city's sidewalks, Corso is there in it, putting us into it, with the magic of vision, with the senses--awakening images, that transmute reality into something more--insights that let us share his joy and echo his shout of Long live Man!

Industry Reviews

In terms of language Corso always seems to me the most interesting of the Beats...extracting all the power from standard syntax and rhetoric, maintaining the Beat anti-academicism...Put this together with the experimentalism and relevance of the Beat outlook, and you have poetry that not only shares our experience but creates it.--Hayden Carruth
