Carl Rakosi: A poet that Allen Ginsberg recommended

I love discovering new (to me) poets, especially good ones. We have evidence of Allen Ginsberg recommending poet Carl Rakosi on at least two occasions: once to Thomas Devaney, who introduced an event celebrating Rakosi at Kelly Writers House at the University of Pennsylvania (click here), and once to Blaming Japhy Rider author Philip A. Bralich.

Click here to read some of Rakosi's poems.
