A controversy has recently arisen over a poetic work that a well-known poet named Kenneth Goldsmith wrote based on the autopsy of Michael Brown. As the injustices surrounding Michael Brown's death are being addressed, the latest in the Michael Brown and Ferguson issue has been a long list of resignations. Most Americans take the incidents surrounding Michael Brown's death very seriously, and some are saying that Kenneth Goldsmith crossed the line with his poem based on Michael Brown's autopsy.
Who is Kenneth Goldsmith and what is his relationship with Michael Brown or Ferguson? Kenneth Goldsmith's general biography is that he recently authored a book called "Seven American Deaths and Disasters." Kenneth Goldsmith also teaches poetry and poetics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2011, he read poetry at the White House and in 2014, Kenneth Goldsmith was a guest on the Colbert Report. On March 10, Kenneth Goldsmith wrote an article for The New Yorker titled, "Post-Internet Poetry Comes of Age."
