Paris

Posted to WritersAndGenres




Beats lived in Paris and sought out French writers and poets
like Celine and Artaud. They read Baudelaire and Rimbaud and seeped themselves in the French literary culture. I would love to think that over a two year period of turning on with Ginsberg, Burroughs and Corso that I had as much influence on them as they did on me. Rapping bullshit somehow turned up in poems and stories.
