DER US-AMERIKANISCHE DICHTER, MALER UND VERLEGER LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI IST GESTORBEN

DER US-AMERIKANISCHE DICHTER, MALER UND VERLEGER LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI IST GESTORBEN

23.02.2021 Der am 24. März 1919 in Yonkers (New York) geborene US-amerikanische Schriftsteller, Dichter, Buchhändler, Verleger, Aktivist und Kunstmaler Lawrence Ferlinghetti (Bild) ist am 22. Februar 2021 gestorben. 1956 verlegte er Allen Ginsbergs Gedichtband "Howl". Auch seine eigenen Gedichte sind Beispiele der von ihm geförderten Beatlyrik, die eine antikapitalistische Veränderung der amerikanischen Gesellschaft und den Aufbau einer Gegenkultur zum Ziel hat. In den 1960er-Jahren beteiligte sich Ferlinghetti an zwei Zeitschriften, die sich mit der Beat-Literatur beschäftigten, "Beatitude" und "Journal For The Protection Of All Beings". Ausserdem gab er das "City Lights Journal" heraus.* Lawrence Ferlinghetti wird oft in einem Atemzug mit andern legendären Autoren der Beat Generation genannt wie dem erwähnten Allen Ginsberg sowie Jack Kerouac und William S. Burroughs.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet and titan of the Beat era, dies at 101

Lawrence Ferlinghetti was the opposite of the flamboyant literary bad boys drawn to the bohemian haven he nurtured in 1950s San Francisco. Unlike Beat novelist Jack Kerouac and poet Allen Ginsberg, he was known for neither public drunkenness nor public nudity. Tall and lean, he swam daily and biked to work at City Lights, the San Francisco bookshop that became a landmark of intellectual freedom not long after he co-founded it seven decades ago.

Few poets of the past 60 years were so well known, or so influential. His books sold more than 1 million copies worldwide, a fantasy for virtually any of his peers, and he ran one of the world’s most famous and distinctive bookstores, City Lights. Although he never considered himself one of the Beats, he was a patron and soul mate and, for many, a lasting symbol — preaching a nobler and more ecstatic American dream.

He self-identified as a philosophical anarchist, hosting many sit-ins and protests against war at City Lights. He regarded poetry as a powerful social force and not one reserved for the intellectual elite, saying, “We have to raise the consciousness; the only way poets can change the world is to raise the consciousness of the general populace.”

Poet, Verleger und Beat-Generation-Legende Lawrence Ferlinghetti ist tot

Ferlinghetti gilt als eine der einflussreichsten Persönlichkeiten in der US-amerikanischen Nachkriegsliteratur. 

And the Beat goes on

Mit dem Tod des Dichters, Verlegers und Betreibers der legendären Buchhandlung „City Lights“ in San Francisco wird die Ära der Beatniks historisch.

Neben Ginsberg, Kerouac und Burroughs war Lawrence Ferlinghetti einer der Pioniere der zeitgenössischen amerikanischen Dichtung. Unerbittlich pochte er auf die politische Verantwortlichkeit der Kunst.
