Kenneth Rexroth

American Poet


An organizer of the infamous Six Gallery poetry reading of October 13, 1955. He has been described as "a middle-aged Chicago poet transplanted to San Francisco, where he held a salon for anarchists and maverick writers. Beloved as a 'hip square'. "

Rexroth became involved with the Beat writers in the middle fifties. According to one of Kerouac's biographers, at a 1956 party, Kerouac made a drunken pass at one of Rexroth's daughter. This, needless to say soured their relationship. In 1959, Rexroth wrote an unfavorable review of Kerouac's Mexico City Blues.

In Kerouac's Dharma Bums, Rexroth is Rheinhold Cacoethes.
