    The prophetic poem that launched a generation when it was first published in 1956 is here presented in a commemorative 40th Anniversary Edition.When the book arrived from its British printers, it was seized almost immediately by U.S. Customs, and shortly thereafter the San Francisco police arrested its publisher and editor, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, together with the City Lights Bookstore manager, Shigeyoshi Murao. The two of them were charged with disseminating obscene literature, and the case went to trial in the Municipal Court of Judge Clayton Horn. A parade of distinguished literary and academic witnesses persuaded the judge that the title poem was indeed not obscene and that it had "redeeming social significance."Thus was Howl and Other Poems freed to become the single most influential poetic work of the post World War II era, with over 800,000 copies now in print.

    (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.

    This volume of correspondence between the two most celebrated members of the Beat Generation documents their process of creation as well as the unfolding of their remarkable friendship, one which was filled with immense pathos and spiritual depth. Through this exchange, Kerouac and Ginsberg emerge first and foremost as writers of artistic passion, innovation, and genius. From their initial encounter in 1944 until Kerouac’s untimely death in 1969, the letters – two-thirds of which have never been published before – speak of the endless struggle, anguish, hard work, and sacrifice involved in giving form to their literary visions. Index. 500p.

    The Beat movement exploded into American culture in the early 1950s with the force of prophecy. Not just another literary school, it was an artistic and social revolution. William S. Burroughs proclaimed that the Beat writers were “real architects of change. There is no doubt that we’re living in a freer America as a result of the Beat literary movement, which is an important part of the larger picture of cultural and political change in this country during the last forty years, when a four-letter word couldn’t appear on the printed page and minority rights were ridiculous.” Anne Waldman, a renowned poet and longtime friend of many of these writers, has gathered in this volume a range of the best and most exemplary writings of the Beat poets and novelists. Selections from the Beat classics appear, as well as more recent prose and poetry demonstrating the continued vitality of the Beat experiment. Included are short biographies of the contributors, an extensive bibliography of Beat literature, and a unique guide to “Beat places” around the world—from Kerouac’s hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts, where his novel Dr. Sax takes place, to Tangier, where Burroughs wrote parts of Naked Lunch.
