News at Eleven: [Allen] Ginsberg revered Lionel Trilling,

and Trilling appreciated at least some of Ginsberg's work and included one of Ginsberg's poems in his anthology The Experience of Literature. Diana Trilling, on the other hand, could not abide Ginsberg. But why? The reason has only recently come to light with the discovery of a forgotten letter in the archive of Peter Orlovsky, Ginsberg's lover, companion, and muse for more than 40 years.
