    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.

Psalm Iv

Now I'll record my secret vision, impossible sight of the face of God:
It was no dream, I lay broad waking on a fabulous couch in Harlem
having masturbated for no love, and read half naked an open book of Blake
on my lap
Lo & behold! I was thoughtless and turned a page and gazed on the living
Sun-flower
and heard a voice, it was Blake's, reciting in earthen measure:
the voice rose out of the page to my secret ear never heard before-
I lifted my eyes to the window, red walls of buildings
