Overview

First published in 1956, Allen Ginsberg’s Howl is a prophetic masterpiece&#8212an epic raging against dehumanizing society that overcame censorship trials and obscenity charges to become one of the most widely read poems of the century. This annotated version of Ginsberg’s classic is the poet’s own re-creation of the revolutionary work’s composition process&#8212as well as a treasure trove of anecdotes, an intimate look at the poet’s writing techniques, and a veritable social history of the 1950s.

"Ginsberg is both tragic and dynamic, a lyrical genius...probably the single greatest influence on American poetical voice since Whitman." – Bob Dylan
