Overview

The sequel to Ferlinghetti’s “A Coney Island of the Mind”, this sequence of 100 poems with recurrent themes includes various sections on love, art, music, history, and literature, as well as confrontations with major figures in the avant-garde before the arrival of the Beat generation.

A sequel to A Coney Island of the Mind (written forty years after the original in what the author has called “a poetry seizure” that lasted more than a year), A Far Rockaway of the Heart is a sequence of one hundred and one related poems with recurrent themes. The author also thinks of it as a kind of caustic critique of modern poetry, including confrontations with or parodies of major figures in the literary avant-garde before the arrival of the Beat generation, notably Pound and Eliot, Beckett and Joyce.
