Selected Poems: Allen Ginsberg

Author(s): Allen Ginsberg

Poetry

Chosen by Ginsberg himself from nearly fifty years of experimental, groundbreaking verse, this selection, in his words, 'summarizes what I deem most honest, most penetrant of my writing', and includes lesser known and later works which go beyond his iconic 'Beat Generation' image. Presented chronologically, and ranging from early works such as "Paterson" (1949) to selections from "White Shroud" (1980-85) and "Cosmopolitan Greetings" (1986-92), and including the classic poems "Howl" (1955-56) and "Kaddish" (1959-60) as well as songs, recent uncollected poems and notes by the author, this volume brings together the most intensely personal verse of a great American poet - incandescent explorations that expand the consciousness with their breadth of vision and depth of humanity.
