The Famed Barney Rosset

Freedom can mean a lot of things. In the wake of Barney Rosset’s passing, and the influx of articles about it, freedom most importantly means independence from censorship. This video, found on Silliman’s Blog, but which was originally derived from this Obscene documentary, commemorates the free Mr. Rossett. You can read an interview with Mr. Rossett, about the history behind some of the most famous Grove Press publications, at the Paris Review. You can watch another video about the notorious Mr. Rossett, here.
