Allen Ginsberg Battles Heckler During Live Poetry Reading

Happy National Poetry Month! To end the month, we found an audio recording of Allen Ginsberg reading his poem, “What would you do if you lost it?”

This performance took place in February 1973 at New York City’s 92Y.

At the six-minute mark in the recording, fellow beat poet Gregory Corso began to heckle the poet on stage and Ginsberg responded with more poetry. Ginsberg’s dad, Louis, joined the poet on stage.

Harry Potter series actor Daniel Radcliffe is currently shooting a thriller in the role of Ginsberg. The movie, Kill Your Darlings, also stars 3:10 to Yuma actor Ben Foster as William Burroughs and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse actor Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac.
