Howl and Other Poems - Allen Ginsberg


'Howl' is interesting I enjoyed pulling it apart, like Ginsberg critiques society well but constantly misses the mark because of his own misogyny. 'America' and 'Song' are my favourite poems in this collection, but beat isn't for me. https://t.co/IG69eP7cGq

Allen Ginsberg paid close attention to his city, the country, and the world. He saw the beauty and the ugly--the bums, the saxophone wailing, music, libraries full of tears, being told what to do and if you don't, you're not taking this life thing seriously. He didn't want his world to be like everyone else's. If you can relate, then this howl is for you.

Beautiful and gritty, creates vivid picture of 1960s and Beat Generation, favorites were “America,” “Howl,” “Transcription of Organ Music”
