It was from this poem by Ferlinghetti that I learned that writers --actually, all artists-- must take risks to succeed.Dead at the ripe-old age of 101, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet in his own right and publisher of many of the beat poets, including, most famously Alan Ginsburg, publication of whose "Howl" got Ferlinghetti arrested for willfully and lewdly printing indecent writings, a charge of which he was eventually acquitted. He founded and ran for decades the famous City Lights bookstore in San Francisco.
"The Last Waltz" is regarded by many as the best Rock concert film ever.
