Managua, January 22, 1982

Re-writing Nicaragua Beat: Allen Ginsberg and the Sandinista Revolution.  Composing an alternate version that doesn't rely on reproducing AG's 1982 and 1986 journals, that may only require permission to reprint "You Don't Know It" and  "On the Conduct of the World Seeking Beauty Against Government." This second text will not be standard academic treatise and leaden prose notation; rather, it will be discursive, non-linear, anecdotal, annotated, imagined, a work of literary archaeology: Excavating Allen Ginsberg in Nicaragua.

Note: Ginsberg handwriting sample from 1982 Nicaragua notebook journal.
