Books by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Lawrence Ferlinghetti, founder of City Lights Booksellers and Publishers is best known as the author of his classic poetry collection, A Coney Island of the Mind, which has been translated into nine languages. In 1998 he was named Poet Laureate of San Francisco. He is also a prolific translator, editor, essayist and the author of a novel, Love in the Days of Rage.

Ferlinghetti's writing often reflects his views about politics and social issues of the time, and the artist's role in the world. Here is a complete listing of Ferlinghetti's currently available titles, including his most recent full-length collection of poetry, Time of Useful Consciousness (New Directions, 2012). His newest chapbook-length books came out in 2014: Blast Cries Laughter (New Directions) and The First and the Last of Everything (Sore Dove / Bottle of Smoke).
