Product Description

This volume constitutes a compilation of the texts of Collected Poems 1947-1980, White Shroud: Poems 1980-1985, Cosmopolitan Greetings: Poems 1986-1992, and Death & Fame: Poems 1993-1997. As the chief figure among the Beats, Ginsberg changed the course of American poetry, liberating it from closed academic forms with the creation of open, vocal, spontaneous, and energetic postmodern verse. The poet's raw tones and attitudes of spiritual liberation also acted as a forceful tributary to the psychological revolution that has manifested as an indelible part of America's 20th-century cultural heritage, profoundly influencing not only poetry, popular song & speech but also our view of the world. 1,189p.
