    Easy to overestimate Allen Ginsberg Easy to underestimate him tooThere are—if you leave out the political religious and major historical figures—only about two dozen or so 20th century cultural icons and Ginsberg is one of them—right up there with Einstein Bogart James Dean and Marilyn Monroe In the 60's his face was ubiuitous and the Ginsberg poster you picked out for yourself showed the kind of Ginsberg you aspired to be Ginsberg in Uncle Sam hat naked Ginsberg embracing naked Peter Orlovsky psychedelic “Moses” Ginsberg holding up two stone tablets of the Law of “Who to be Kind to” or Ginsberg protesting in the snow and wearing a big sign that says “Pot is Fun” He was a hipster a hedonist and a holy man standing up for every form of free expression you could imagine smiling from the walls of every coffeehouse every bookstore every other two room apartment that you knew And it was hard to get past all those posters and just sit down and read the poetryBut if you got past all that it was still hard to separate the political from the poetic His most famous poem Howl was the center of a notorious free speech fight and many of the later poems from “America” to “Wichita Vortex Sutra” and beyond could not be fully understood without some knowledge of the protest movements of the time However if you did actually sit down and read some of his poetry away from the context away from the intoxicating counter cultural atmosphere you might begin to suspect that Ginsberg the Poetry Icon was superior to Irwin Allen Ginsberg from Newark New Jersey the guy who actually sat down and wrote what is often—frankly mediocre versePart of the problem stems from the length of Ginsberg's free verse line it is indeed a very long line habitually a few beats longer than a dactylic hexameter Even when he breaks a line into WCWilliams “triads” it still seems to be long Most poets who choose such a line as their vehicle Kit Smart Martin Tupper Whitman Fearing Jeffers Ginsberg come off sounding biblical and orotund in long passages which lack lyricism and are often indistinguishable from mediocre prose CK Williams perhaps because of his narrative drive is the notable exception here When you add to this the fact that Ginsberg delights in improvisation and once embraced as his model the “no revisions necessary” Kerouac prose style it is little wonder that many of his lines fail to singBut as I said it is easy to underestimate him too particularly if we “just sit down and read” his poetry divorcing it from the world of cultural influences and public performance that he loved For example if you sit down to read “Howl” and it seems too ponderous too much like the prophet Jeremiah wailing for all the pitiful beatnik dead just stop for a minute and go download some early 50's jazz Herbie Nichols maybe or Lee Konitz or the MJ—and play it uietly in the background while you stand up and recite the poem aloud to yourself—swaying a little perhaps even snapping your fingers You may begin to discover unexpected deposits of gentle humor the occasional pocket of sick humor and even a little slapstick from time to time and also sense knitting the four movements of this magnificent performance piece together—an overarching self conscious hipster irony which refuses for even one second to take Ginsberg the Prophet or Ginsberg the Poetry Icon completely seriouslyAs you probably can tell I love “Howl” I think it is a masterwork of American poetry uniue and irreplaceable This collections also contains four shorter pieces almost as good ”A Supermarket in California” an encounter with Walt Whitman who is “eyeing the grocery boys” ”America” a love letter to the USA and a protest poem at the same time ending with the memorable line “America I'm putting my ueer shoulder to the wheel “Sunflower Sutra” a conversation with Kerouac in Frisco about a gray dead sunflower which ends with a “sermon” proclaiming that “we are all beautiful golden sunflowers inside” and “In the Baggage Room at Greyhound” Irwin Allen Ginsberg's farewell to a job he obviously hatedThese five poems make up only 70% of this small 50 page collection and the rest of the poems included here I don't think are worth reading at all But then I didn't experiment with jazz in the background So I just might be underestimating Ginsberg once again

    Allen Ginsberg a sad and lonely man wrote this to impress Kerouac another sad and lonely man Over the years a lot of sad and lonely people haven't gotten over the how much that first fucking line resonates with them The whole best mindsgenerationdestroyedmadness lineTen years ago this was a 5 star poem Ten years from now it will be a 3 star poem That's just called growing up folks

    You will not like this Like we use to say vengan de a unoSo “Howl” My rating is based mostly on my experience with that long poemI admire any work filled with sincerity and lyrically intense lines when found Powerful raw images that expose an unknown world I understand this book's historical context and what it represented at the time; storming in with a breath of fresh air breaking the mold and dealing with some themes and views I also agree with Well except for the endless references to drug abuse and alcohol regarded through the years as a source of creativity and a way to express yourself against reigning social conventions; a dangerously infantile waste of a life in some cases Debauchery consumption of drugs and alcohol as a statement a sort of protest against materialism and conformity Mindless attitudes that make you different that keep you safely away from anything mainstream and doesn't lead you to an unbearable feeling of emptiness Sexual liberation—being free of any dogma any prejudice being able to enjoy complete freedom to love—understood as sleeping with whoever crosses your street and then writing yourself an ode celebrating those actions; trying to be so different that you end up being as ordinary as any other mortal It was their times of course And this is simply an opinionAnyway whereas I do appreciate the honesty and the experiences and sentiments that Ginsberg brought to these pages I feel like many significant matters get lost in a haze of pretentiousness self indulgence and not an extraordinary writing I take away the political context and there's not much to hold onto in this particular case and from my perspective A perspective that needless to say doesn't epitomize the absolute truth nor tries to I was not expecting a bunch of puritan euphemisms and songs on a prairie but it was simply too much and I struggled to finish the whole thing Even though I always say to myself that literature does not have to be a source of misery so if I am not enjoying a book I can leave it behind I did try to finish this one because well it had less than 100 pages don't be so lazy girlA really short book that became too painful to finish You can imagine You can also say Two stars Are you out of your mind? This is pure sentiment pure poetry meant to stir your most hidden emotions Oh grow up with a Joan Rivers' kind of tone And I will respect that However for me it was not and the only thing I stirred was some benevolent coffee that helped me throughout this arduous journeyThe rest of the poems were a little less painful; nothing I kind of liked “Transcription of Organ Music” Some good lines from time to time “America” is a decent pearl containing the essence of the Beat generation “Song” was a nice change of paceBeats and me just don't get along I still have Naked Lunch to read I wonderNov 24 2015 Also on my blog

    Muddled addled and overrated In fact any rating even a single star or half moon is too much for this amateur hour of a poem It might have played well when shouted out to a roomful of arrogant drunks but on the page it droops it teeters under the weight of all of those ungainly adjectivies and finally collapses in a fog of its own flatulance I saw the best minds of my generation ignore this long long limerick Now only nostalgists and know naughts still cling to its pages of ill repute Why?


  6. Pauline Pauline says:

    My godReading Howl was like getting stuck for an hour in the brain of a rebellious pubescent sexist loudmouth Between every sentence transpires the hubris of being THE NEW POET and of being A COOL OUTCAST and a member of that little BOYS CLUB Ginsberg brings up again and again although it weakens his writing every time There's a faint insufferable music of puerility behind it all most notably when Ginsberg brings up constantly the names of his famous friends brings down women and ew vaginas and of course relapses into phallic metaphors every two pages Love child of an angsty teen a 1950's jock and a wannabe anarchist the book is always on the verge of being good always grazing brilliance for a word or two for a verse or two and then back to complacent biographical drunken mediocrityI heard so much about his poetry I heard so much about the Beats Generation My bookstore has a special swagger section just for them pretty boys you know The I read them though the I see how terribly overrated they are just as a bunch of privileged bullies would be in a common high school For a reason I cannot begin to fathom they just kept up the illusion going in the literary community instead of peaking at 17I don't see what Ginsberg brings to the table; what he invented what he created with this; I don't see read feel the HOWL he's trying is he even trying? to express


  7. Steven Godin Steven Godin says:

    Nothing like a bit of controversy to keep the establishment ticking over and in Howl it's easy to see why as this was seen as a shocking and powerful piece of obscenity in the eyes of some but for many it's viewed as a celebrated manifesto of great importance for the beat Generation of the 1950s that helped to stick a big fat middle finger up to sexual repression and capitalism This is a vital collection of Ginsberg's work that will always stand the test of time


  8. Timothy Urges Timothy Urges says:

    Ginsberg takes you there


  9. Thomas Thomas says:

    I feel similar ways about Allen Ginsberg and Adele While I appreciate the skill behind both of their work I find both of their material overwrought contrary to popular opinion Yes I see how Ginsberg's poetry revolted against oppressive forces and mainstream heteronormative America Its lack of style and nuance still frustrates me Props to him for lending fire to a revolution that uplifted marginalized voices even if I myself find his writing unfulfilling and too frantic despite the positive impact of its shock value


  10. Erin Erin says:

    It took awhile for me to finally determine where exactly Allan Ginsberg sits in my book reviewer rating scale Truth is I was lured in by all the hoopla this collection received in 1956 when it was seized by US customs It's just not easy for me to review poetryDo I understand why AG set the world on fire in 56? Totally Was it the type of writing that made me HOWL ? Mmmmmaybe like a whimper?Goodreads Review 240619
