Beat movement icon and visionary poet, Allen Ginsberg broke boundaries with his fearless, pyrotechnic verse. This volume brings together the poems that made his name as a defining figure of the counter-culture. 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.
