publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti, one of the leading figures of the Beat movement, has died aged 101. The City Lights bookshop, which he founded in 1953, said in statement that he died on Monday evening.

His son Lorenzo Ferlinghetti said his cause of death was lung disease, and that he had received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine last week.

Ferlinghetti printed works by influential poets and authors including Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William S Burroughs.
