Republished with a new cover and a new introduction by David Amram, this publication includes forewords by two legendary Beat writers, William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg.
New rare sketches and notes from the author’s personal journal, forewords from two of the world’s leading poets of the Beat Generation, and an introduction by David Amram, the man who collaborated with Jack Kerouac in the first-ever live poetry reading in 1957, are collected here for the first time in this revised and unique edition of Mindfield. This poetry is an affront to all that limits, restrains, or frightens. “Death I unsalute you,” Gregory declares. Beyond energy and sheer brilliance, these poems offer the wisdom of a man unstuck and a mind content with the freedom of knowing truth without being afraid of it.
