About this product
- Description'I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked' Beat movement icon and visionary poet, the author broke boundaries with his fearless, pyrotechnic verse. This book brings together the famous poems that made his name as a defining figure of the counterculture.
- Author BiographyAllen Ginsberg (1926-1997) 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.
