 Howl and Other Poems - (City Lights Pocket Poets) by Allen Ginsberg

Introduction By William Carlos Williams

"Howl" was originally written as a performance piece by a young, new poet, Allen Ginsberg.  When published by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti in 1956, Howl broke so many social taboos that copies were impounded as obscene, and  Ferlinghetti arrested. In 1957 the courts ruled that the poem was not obscene, and "Howl" went on to become the most popular poem of the Beat Generation.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix;Angel-headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connectionto the starry dynamo in the machinery of night.
