Re: “A Neglected Beat Pioneer

Robert Welch,( poet, artist), the pain is too deep for words, the words are too small for the hurt, when you fall through the big American crack, you end up unknown, buried in dirt

Re: “A Neglected Beat Pioneer

My name is Bob Kaufman also I am a musician and lived in the Bay Area at the time of Bob Kaufman death. It so happens that I was called by Noel Jewks a well known East Bay musician to play for Bob Kaufman’s eulogy at San Francisco City Hall. When Noel introduced me everyone did a double take.

Re: “A Neglected Beat Pioneer

D. Scot thanks for tightly telling us how the obscurification of Kaufman's work was beyond happenstance. "Manufactured" rightly implies the machinery of a system. I hope to read more of your own re-examination not only of his "life and work" but the obstructive structures that persist. I have not bought "The Collected Poems" yet. Good news, however, I attempted to check it out at the Main today, and there were eight readers in waiting ahead of me. I will be reciting with other poets in praise of Kaufman at the event Neeli is organizing at Bird and Beckett on January 26th.
