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.
