5 opinions on “Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010)”

  1. Tuli was one of a kind,after him there only pale imitators,a poet with a personal voice that produced 53 books of poems…wow, it is a victory for the Beats and for Tuli to publish so much in a hostile literary society.I loved him and will fallow his beacon till the end! Rest in peace Valery and Ruth Oisteanu

  2. What a haunting, historic and tender looking hero in this b&w picture. It is great to honor him. See you the memorial at St. Mark’s Church on Saturday I hope.
