The collection is accompanied by a special 64 page booklet containing the poems. Upon the release of his first published work, Howl and Other Poems (1956), Allen Ginsberg became the unlikely force of a movement that would change a generation: art, literature, sex, love, family and politics. None would ever be seen the same way again. The Beat Generation was born. And with it, the legend of the free-spirited, rule-breaking, brillian group of friends Ginsberg kept close--Jack Keroac, William Burroughts, Gregory Corso and Neal Cassady. Including Ginsberg’s two seminal works, Howl and Kaddish, as well as nearly two dozen other works, this collection celebrates a cultural icon who was of his time, ahead of his time, and whose legacy will transcend time. The collection includes such important works as: Who Be Kind To, White Shroud, Footnote to Howl, Sunflower Sutra, America, Supermarket in California, My Sad Self, Wales Visitation, Sad Dust Glories, Plutonian Ode, My Green Automobile, Neal’s Ashes, Many Loves, The Names, September on Jessore Road, Father Death Blues, and more... What makes this collection very special is the accompanying 64 page booklet featuring the text of the poems.

    All I'm saying is, don't drive through your work parking lot with the windows rolled down while you listen to this. All I'm saying is, don't drive through your work parking lot with the windows rolled down while you listen to this.

    Allen Ginsberg reads some of his most famous poems and it just goes to show that poetry is a medium that is meant for the ears, even more than the page. Kaddish, Howl, America and a whole host of his other poems make an appearance covering almost 40 years of his poetry. Well worth the listen.

    Weird, but interesting. The audio recordings are absolutely phenomenal for presenting Ginsberg's work. Weird, but interesting. The audio recordings are absolutely phenomenal for presenting Ginsberg's work.

    I tried listening before falling asleep but he kept me wake for hours cause I was constantly.chuckling. People are complaining about his singing skills - well I feel that makes him even more loveable. He is timelessly awesome.

    There were a few poems I absolutely loved and having him read them enhanced that, but overall I found most of them a little too raunchy.

    Allen Ginsberg reads his work to an audience. His rich and expressive voice is a joy to hear. It isn’t all profane ranting. Some is quite tender. Most pieces are introduced with a little story.

    I mean, it's Ginsberg doing Ginsberg. And it's awesome. Though my ears did bleed a bit from the songs. That's pribably my only issue with this. The songs were awful.

    An audiobook listen. Great poems—many canonical. But the musical interludes—especially Allen’s squawking goes beyond the diy/punk ethos—sometimes it’s just plain painful. It tapers off a bit at the end. But you come for the poems and all the best ones are here. Worth a listen, then reread the collections.

    It’s lovely to hear a poet in his own voice, sounding his barbaric yawp.

    I was only really knew "HOWL," but this was a good introduction to Ginsberg's wordplay and humor as well. I enjoyed this. I was only really knew "HOWL," but this was a good introduction to Ginsberg's wordplay and humor as well. I enjoyed this.

    I enjoyed most his takes on politics, America, family, death, and religion. The Supermarket, Bomb, Allah and Yahweh, America were some of my favorites. The sex stuff was pretty powerful too. He should stay away from music, though. A bit too blunt at times.

    In here there is some powerful poetry that fucks with the establishment and might just blow your mind. Not all of it resonated with me but the stuff that did really did.
