(City Lights Pocket Poets series). Allen Ginsberg's poem, 'Howl,' landed on the shores of America's shipwrecked consciousness as a manifesto and testimony. The book, HOWL AND OTHER POEMS, was subsequently seized by U.S. customs and the San Francisco police. It was the subject of a long court trial at which a series of poets and professors persuaded the court that the book was not obscene. Ginsberg knew what was obscene, and he wrote it down in a delirious, impassioned fit of poetic reverie. It is both THE legendary and notorious poem of 20th-century American literature. Bibliography. 60p.
