Allen Ginsberg - Howl And Other Poems


  • £5.99

Allen Ginsberg's Howl and Other Poems was originally published by City Lights Books in the Fall of 1956. Subsequently seized by U.S. customs and the San Francisco police, it was the subject of a long court trail at which a series of poets and professors persuaded the court that the book was not obscene. 

Howl & Other Poems is the single most influential poetic work of the post-World War II era, with over 1,000,000 copies now in print. 

"Howl was Allen's metamorphosis from quiet, brilliant, burning bohemian scholar trapped by his flames and repressions to epic vocal bard" - Michael McClure 

"It is the poet, Allen Ginsberg, who has gone, in his own body, through the horrifying experiences described from life in these pages" - William Carlos Williams
