I write poetry because this morning I woke trembling with fear what could I say in China?

from “Improvisation in Beijing” by Allen Ginsberg


I have discovered that on 8th November 1985 Allen Ginsberg landed in Chongqing! If “Howl” has been recited here before it was by Ginsberg himself.

So far the only info I have is this link to an article by Liang Shan Quan describing his visit. I hope to somehow locate it when I get home and  learn more about his trip to China.

My head is spinning with this…
