Overview

A member of the Beat Generation, Allen Ginsberg was central to many of the social controversies of the 1960s. As that decade has become a part of history, Ginsberg has continued to write and has become the topic of a growing amount of scholarly literature. He has been the subject of numerous interviews, and articles have been written about him in newspapers and popular magazines. His archives were recently purchased by Stanford University. He has secured recognition as a cultural icon and folk hero, and he may well be remembered as the most important poet of the 20th century. This bibliography identifies and chronicles the tremendous response to his work.

The author of this book had unlimited access to Ginsberg's archival material, including the press clippings that Ginsberg had collected comprehensively over the past half century. Included in this volume are citations for some 6,500 biographical and critical works and translations of Ginsberg's writings. The initial section of translations is a complete record of Ginsberg's poems as they have appeared in 32 languages. Entries are grouped in subsections for particular languages. These subsections are further broken down according to types of publication, such as books, anthologies, periodicals, and miscellaneous works. Entries then are listed chronologically. The second section provides entries for biographies, reviews, interviews, and critical works about Ginsberg. Entries are arranged chronologically, so that the reader may see how the response to Ginsberg's writings has grown. Extensive indexes allow the reader to locate individual entries by author and title.
