Item Description: Martino Fine Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 147 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. 2014 Reprint of 1956 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Howl is a poem written by Allen Ginsberg in 1955, published as part of his 1956 collection of poetry titled Howl and Other Poems. Ginsberg began work on Howl as early as 1954. Howl is considered to be one of the great works of American literature. It came to be associated with the group of writers known as the Beat Generation, which included Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs. There is no foundation to the myth that Howl was written as a performance piece and later published by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti of City Lights Books. This myth was perpetuated by Ferlinghetti as part of the defense s case during the poem s obscenity trial, as detailed below. Upon the poem s release, Ferlinghetti and the bookstore s manager, Shigeyoshi Murao, were charged with disseminating obscene literature, and both were arrested. On October 3, 1957, Judge Clayton W. Horn ruled that the poem was not obscene. Poems include: Howl -- Footnote To Howl -- A Supermarket in California -- Transcription of Organ Music -- Sunflower Sutra -- America -- In the Baggage Room at Greyhound; Earlier Poems: An Asphodel -- Song -- Wild Orphan -- In Back of the Real.

Item Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Allen Ginsberg was the bard of the beat generation, and Howl, Kaddish and Other Poems is a collection of his finest work published in Penguin Modern Classics , including Howl , whose vindication at an obscenity trial was a watershed moment in twentieth-century history. I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked Beat movement icon and visionary poet, Allen Ginsberg broke boundaries with his fearless, pyrotechnic verse. This new collection brings together the famous poems that made his name as a defining figure of the counterculture. They include the apocalyptic Howl , which became the subject of an obscenity trial when it was first published in 1956; the moving lament for his dead mother, Kaddish ; the searing indictment of his homeland, America ; and the confessional Mescaline . Dark, ecstatic and rhapsodic, they show why Ginsberg was one of the most influential poets of the twentieth century. Allen Ginsberg (1926-97) was an American poet, best known for the poem Howl (1956), celebrating his friends of the Beat Generation and attacking what he saw as the destructive forces of materialism and conformity in the United States at the time. He was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters, was awarded the medal of Chevalier de l Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture, won the National Book Award for The Fall of America and was a co-founder of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at the Naropa Institute, the first accredited Buddhist college in the Western world. If you enjoyed Howl, Kaddish and Other Poems , you might like Jack Kerouac s On the Road , also available in Penguin Modern Classics . The poem that defined a generation . ( Guardian on Howl ). He avoids nothing but experiences it to the hilt . (William Carlos Williams). Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780141190167
