Kaddish - 50th Anniversary Edition

With perfect timing (building on the interest created by Howl, both the
reprint and the film) City Lights have just issued, in the familiar
Pocket Poets format a new (50th Anniversary Edition) of Allen's classic
second collection, the ground-breaking Kaddish & Other Poems 1958-1960.
This new edition features an afterword by Bill Morgan, as well as
"previously unpublished family photographs, Naomi's paintings, and
documents and letters relating to the composition of the poem".

  1. Back in '72 Allen sent me the manuscript for Mary Beach and Claude Pelieu's beautiful translation of Kaddish. He asked me to proofread, etc. It gave me the opportunity to read Kaddish in depth in two languages. Study the words. Pamela Beach Plymell
