Allen Ginsberg "Howl and Other Poems" LP
Unit price / per
Beat-era poet Allen Ginsberg's life changed permanently in 1956 with the publication of his most famous work, "Howl", which sparked the San Francisco poetry renaissance. Shortly after its publication, "Howl" was banned for obscenity, a decision that was overturned soon afterwards when it was judged to contain redeeming social importance. It remains one of the most vital poems of the mid-20th Century. This revered recording from 1959 features the poet reading some of his most significant works including "Howl" and "Kaddish (Part 1)" and is a perfect memorial to his legacy.
