Item Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Not Signed; 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). book. Bookseller Inventory # ria9780141190167_rkm

Wrappers soiled; boards lightly distended; internally fine. Czech samizdat edition of three American poets of the Beat Generation: Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Gregory Corso, published during the height of Czechoslovak "normalization" period, when the production and circulation of such texts was illegal. Jan Zábrana (1934-1984), the translator, was close to Ginsberg; he translated and published his poetry and other Beat writers already in the early 1960s. Interest in the Beat Generation preceded Ginsberg's first trip to Prague in February of 1965 (a second trip followed in late April of 1965). A 1959 essay ("Americká bohéma") by Igor Hájek in the journal Světová literatura introduced Beat writers to the broader Czech public and included translations of some of their poems, including excerpts from Howl . The poetry of the American Beat writers was in energetic contrast to official Czech poetry of the late 50s and early 60s, which "comprised either panegyrics to the communist state, or innocuous, sentimental musings" (Kopecký 2010, 98). At that time, counter-culture Czech poets were in virtual obscurity. The director Pavel Juráček wrote of Ginsberg's visit, that the Czech beatniks were "ready to serve and worship him" (Blažek 36). His poems as well as Ferlinghetti's appeared in Světová literatura with translations by Zábrana and articles about the Beat Generation were published in Kulturní tvorba. During Ginsberg's stay in Prague, he and Zábrana appeared together at public readings, with Zábrana providing Czech translations to Ginsberg's poems. Both Ginsberg and Ferlinghetti achieved poetic celebrity status in Czechoslovakia, with their poems heard on radio and television, as well as at small theaters and poetry readings, particularly at the Viola cafe in Prague. The Viola cafe functioned as the "hang-out" for young poets and artists in Prague and their weekly poetry readings featured work by Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti, and Corso, whose poetry also appears in this samizdat collection. According to Zábrana, the Beats' were attractive to a Czech audience due to their "thematic urgency," which was connected to their dissident, non-conformist, and yet socially engaged worldview. Initially Ginsberg received positive attention from the Czech press, but within a few weeks censorship restricted the publication of his work and he was followed more closely by the secret police. He became a persona non grata to the regime following his crowning as "The King of May" at the rowdy May 1st, 1965 celebration—a student-organized street festival that had been allowed to take place after prior years of clashes, unrest, and repressive action at the event. Ginsberg was denounced by Czech authorities and the state-controlled press; he was deported on May 7th, having been labelled a "moral and political danger" due to his his sexual promiscuity, his antagonistic views of the domestic regime, and for supposedly inciting the Czech youth. His poem "The King of May", which he wrote on the plane from Prague, appears in this anthology . It has been argued that Ginsberg unwittingly gave the Czech authorities an argument to crackdown on native intellectuals and writers, who had enjoyed relative freedom following the relaxation of restrictions in the early 1960s. Consequently, two significant magazines, Tvář and Knižní kultura, were shuttered. Publication of translations of Ginsberg's poetry was prohibited, and production was halted on several already prepared selections of his and other Beat writers' work. Ginsberg and Ferlinghetti were nonetheless included in a significant anthology of new American Poetry, Obeznámení s noci, which appeared in 1967, and the poetry and prose of Beat writers continued to circulate unofficially.
