Allen Ginsberg Papers
The three pages shown here were among those sent to Lawrence Ferlinghetti April 18, 1958 with the “Interzone” manuscript, see Burroughs’s letter later in this exhibition. Burroughs gives his Paris address as 9 Rue Gît-le-Cœur, i.e., the Beat Hotel, a Latin Quarter hotel whose residents in the late 1950s included Gregory Corso, Allen Ginsberg, Brion Gysin, Peter Orlovsky, Ian Sommerville and others.
