Beat poet Ginsberg dies
Artist influences generations with sexual, philosophical liberation

shoes full of blood on the snowbank
docks waiting for a door in the East
River to open a room full of steam
heat and opium.”
“Howl” was dedicated to Carl
Solomon, a patient he met during
a stay in a psychiatric ward. Forty
years later, Ginsberg recited his
poetry on MTV for Generation X
Ginsberg’s poetry placed spon
taneity over metered verse, frank
language over flowery words. His
work was often confessional, dis
cussing his homosexuality, his
mother’s death and his relation
“Kaddish,” one of his most fa
mous works, was an Oedipal poem
dealing with his mother’s life and
death in a mental hospital. It was
written in his Manhattan apartment
fueled by a combination of amphet
amines and morphine.
His first exposure to the nascent
counterculture came when he was
a 17-year-old Columbia University
freshman. There he met fellow fu
ture beatniks Jack Kerouac, Will
iam S. Burroughs and Neal
Cassady. The group, disillusioned
by conventional society, created
their own subculture of drugs and
“Basically, (they were) just a
gang of friends who were very into
being literate, and who were inter
ested in art, and loved each other,”
Ginsberg once said of the Beat
Generation’s founding fathers.
“Some gay, some straight.”
Ginsberg was in thfe gay camp,
and became a proponent of homo
sexual rights—one of many causes
the activist poet embraced. In 1960,
he went on television to call for the
decriminalization of marijuana. He
was arrested in 1967 for protest
ing against the Vietnam War in
New York, and was tear-gassed a
year later while protesting at the
Democratic convention in Chicago.
He claimed that FBI director J.
Edgar Hoover had placed him on a
“dangerous security list” in 1965,
a distinction that led to airport strip
searches for several years whenever
he returned to the United States.
Ginsberg’s first taste of notori
ety came after the publication of
“Howl” in 1956. Copies of the book
were seized by San Francisco po
lice and U.S. Customs officials, and
publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti
was charged with publishing an ob
Ferlinghetti was acquitted in
1957, but the case generated enor
mous publicity for Ginsberg and his
work. Ginsberg was suddenly in
Ginsberg remained vital and
active well into his 60s, perform
ing in Manhattan nightclubs and
doing poetry readings. Last year,
he recorded his poem “The Ballad
of the Skeletons” with musical
backing from Paul McCartney and
Philip Glass. Kaye produced the

THEATRIX from page 9
Jude Hickey gave a holistic perfor
mance in the role of Tony Aronica.
His depiction of Tony’s stupidity, lust,
arrogance and needs was best seen in
his haughty eyes and stance. The lev
els of emotions through which Hickey
transgressed created a riveting char
The second show of the evening
was “Defying Gravity,” which was
centered on the explosion of the Chal
The Challenger explosion is a
tragic and emotionally charged event
in the history of America, but the
script of “Defying Gravity” made it
seem trite and cliched with its con
trived and corny symbols. If not for a
few key individuals’ performances,
this play would have bogged down the
audience in the banality of life savers
and trapeze artists.
Deni Hilger represented Christa
McAuliffe in her role as teacher. Her
tenderness and enthusiasm
complimented her character’s oscilla
tion from mother to teacher to astro
naut and humanized the Challenger
Jesse Witkowitz easily alternated
between child and adult in her role as
Elizabeth, who represented
McAuliffe’s daughter. At times, how
ever, she struggled with the blandness
and banality of the lines, especially in
the epiphany at the end of the circus
John Snell was heartwarming in
his performance as Monet. His musi
cal voice, child-like enthusiasm and
artistic pride created a character who
was a father figure and a best friend.
Robie Hayek’s performance as
C.B. was one of the highlights of the
play, adding the compassion and re
morse that the script lacked through
Heidi Maus also gave a compas
sionate performance as Donna, the
owner of an astronaut-frequented bar.
Her nonchalant attitude was wonder
fully complimented by her emotional
attachment to the astronauts and her
pride over having known them.
Finally, the technical aspects of
“Defying Gravity,” especially Nathan
Leach’s lighting design, helped to re
inforce the space theme.
