Portrait of Bob Kaufman by Chester Kessler, 1954


After learning of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, beat poet Bob Kaufman took a Buddhist vow of silence that lasted ten years until the end of the Vietnam War in 1973. He broke his silence by reciting his poem: •

All those ships that never sailed

The ones with their seacocks open

That were scuttled in their stalls...

Today I bring them back

Huge and intransitory

And let them sail

Forever

Happy birthday to Beat poet Gregory Corso.



“In the 50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.”



Gregory Corso (March 26, 1930 – January 17, 2001) was a key member of the Beat movement, a group of convention-breaking writers who were credited with sparking much of the social and political change that transformed the United States in the 1960s.
