America which has been written in the heydays of political turmoil in the US and at the brink of Vietnam War, from the early lines of the poem you see the poet is really concerned with the political life of his country and is developing an anti-establishment tone, mentioning the dates and events.

When I first read Allen Ginsberg's poems, like 'Howl' and 'A Supermarket in California', some years ago, they made a big impression on me. Some of his poems are first-rate: others are not. He did not need to use as many vulgarisms as he did. He was good enough without using profanity.

Can someone possibly repair the spelling of Allen's surname in the first line? The g has been omitted.

Where is Howl? I was hoping for a more enlightened web page.

I agree that Ginsberg was an underwhelming poet, and I do not think that it has anything to do with not understanding poetry. I'm not going to pretend to see the Emperors New Clothes, or Ginsberg's Good Poetry, as it were. I, too, tried to like him because I am a big fan or some of his buddies; Kerouac, Burroughs, and Kesey (not sure how chummy he was with Kesey, but you get the idea) . I was disappointed to say the least. I admit to having kind of a preconceived notion about what his poetry might be like, according to the company he kept. You can definitely tell that he was friends with Burroughs from the bizarre and gritty gayness in his poems. Definitely reminds me of Burroughs' Naked Lunch. But that's where the similarities end.

Why is Howl not part of his poems on this website, since it is actually his most famous poem?

@Ray Davis You know? I think this a good point. I enjoyed Howl and for the better part of month or so I've been trying to like Ginsberg, I wanted to, but I honestly feel like its laughably adolescent gibberish. Too many times I finish one of his poems and think...ooooook...great. Whatever.

He wrote a poem on our Liberation War 1971 standing on the street of my city Jessore. I feel proud of it.

I knew Allen up until around the time he passed away. My Uncle was his cousin and Allen would come over many times to my aunt and uncles house. Allen was so nice and down to earth. He never spoke about his poems - he was just a regular guy.

Allen, good job when you sucked off Jack Kerouac! I am a really big fan of the time you did that! But your poetry is often terrible

Dear Allen, They tell me you're dead. I see no sign of that in your poetry.
