    About "Allen Ginsberg"

      • Allen Ginsberg

        Irwin Allen Ginsberg was the son of Louis and Naomi Ginsberg, two Jewish members of the New York literary counter culture of the 1920s Ginsberg was raised among several progressive political perspectives A supporter of the Communist party, Ginsberg s mother was a nudist whose mental health was a concern throughout the poet s childhood According to biographer Barry Miles, Naomi s illness gave Allen an enormous empathy and tolerance for madness, neurosis, and psychosis As an adolescent, Ginsberg savored Walt Whitman, though in 1939, when Ginsberg graduated high school, he considered Edgar Allan Poe his favorite poet Eager to follow a childhood hero who had received a scholarship to Columbia University, Ginsberg made a vow that if he got into the school he would devote his life to helping the working class, a cause he took seriously over the course of the next several years.He was admitted to Columbia University, and as a student there in the 1940s, he began close friendships with William S Burroughs, Neal Cassady, and Jack Kerouac, all of whom later became leading figures of the Beat movement The group led Ginsberg to a New Vision, which he defined in his journal Since art is merely and ultimately self expressive, we conclude that the fullest art, the most individual, uninfluenced, unrepressed, uninhibited expression of art is true expression and the true art Around this time, Ginsberg also had what he referred to as his Blake vision, an auditory hallucination of William Blake reading his poems Ah Sunflower, The Sick Rose, and Little Girl Lost Ginsberg noted the occurrence several times as a pivotal moment for him in his comprehension of the universe, affecting fundamental beliefs about his life and his work While Ginsberg claimed that no drugs were involved, he later stated that he used various drugs in an attempt to recapture the feelings inspired by the vision.In 1954, Ginsberg moved to San Francisco His mentor, William Carlos Williams, introduced him to key figures in the San Francisco poetry scene, including Kenneth Rexroth He also met Michael McClure, who handed off the duties of curating a reading for the newly established 6 Gallery With the help of Rexroth, the result was The 6 Gallery Reading which took place on October 7, 1955 The event has been hailed as the birth of the Beat Generation, in no small part because it was also the first public reading of Ginsberg s Howl, a poem which garnered world wide attention for him and the poets he associated with.Shortly after Howl and Other Poems was published in 1956 by City Lights Bookstore, it was banned for obscenity The work overcame censorship trials, however, and became one of the most widely read poems of the century, translated into than twenty two languages.In the 1960s and 70s, Ginsberg studied under gurus and Zen masters As the leading icon of the Beats, Ginsberg was involved in countless political activities, including protests against the Vietnam War, and he spoke openly about issues that concerned him, such as free speech and gay rights agendas.Ginsberg went on publish numerous collections of poetry, including Kaddish and Other Poems 1961 , Planet News 1968 , and The Fall of America Poems of These States 1973 , which won the National Book Award.In 1993, Ginsberg received the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres the Order of Arts and Letters from the French Minister of Culture He also co founded and directed the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at the Naropa Institute in Colorado In his later years, Ginsberg became a Distinguished Professor at Brooklyn College.On April 5, 1997, in New York City, he died from complications of hepatitis.

    1. Not my favorite poems; but still a glimpse into the concerns of Ginsberg latter in life - a circle drawing to closure.


    2. Bob Dylan said in a 2007 interview with Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone, "[T]he 1950s and 1960s interest people now. A part of the reason, if not the whole reason, is the atom bomb. The atom bomb fueled the entire world that came after it. It showed that indiscriminate killing and indiscriminate homicide on a mass level was possible. . . . I'm sure that fueled all aspects of society. I know if gave rise to the music we were playing. If you look at all these early performers, they were atom-bomb-fue [...]


    3. Before reading Plutonian Ode and Other Poems, I assumed "Plutonian" referred to Pluto, that Ginsberg would be commenting on the Space Race, as in "Poem Rocket"[]Moon politicians earth weeping and warring in eternity tho not one star disturbed by screaming madmen from Hollywood oil tycoons from Romania making secret deals with flabby green Plutonians[] - Poem Rocket (Collected Poems 1947-1997, pg. 171)On the contrary, "Plutonian" refers to Plutonium. Nuclear power and the disposal of radioactive [...]


    4. Plutonian Ode is one of Ginsberg’s more forgettable collections, but only in comparison to the stand-out work that he produced throughout the fifties – there are still some fantastic poems here, political pieces designed to make his readers think about the world around them.These poems are no less relevant than they were when they were written, between the years of 1977 and 1980. If you’ve read and enjoyed some of Ginsberg’s other work then I highly recommend you buy not only this but th [...]


    5. In één dag uitgelezen, met veel moeite. Die moeite zat hem in het ontdekken van de geniale metaforen van Ginsberg. Veel verwijzingen naar de Griekse en Romeinse cultuur maakt Ginsberg tot een schrijver die tussen Plato en Aristoteles in zou kunnen staan. Zulke verwijzingen zie je niet vaak meer.Eén nadeel: Soms liggen de metaforen er íets te dik bovenop. Te veel van het goede. Desalniettemin geweldig.


    6. A meditation on the politics, nuclear threat, tensions between US & Russia, American geopolitics, identifies precursors to the emergence of terrorism threats that we face today. A cynical, critical, as well as a clearly expressed observation of the world from a dissidents point of view.


    7. Another language, perhaps more penetrating than whatever it is we use today. Ginsberg runs rampant in this work and I couldn’t be happier about it. For at least a little while these poems carved new pathways in my brain.


    8. favourite peoms include "don't grow old", "to the punks of dawlish", "homework", birdbrain!", "eroica" and "capitol air".


    9. "Don't grow old" es un poema precioso y escribo esto mayormente para acordarme en un futuro de que está en este libro


    10. I zipped through this in a day and dug most of it. After the title poem, the rest are chronologically arranged, and Ginsberg's later works are the better ones. In earlier poems, some of the phrasing and plodding rhyming seem off, and some sad sack "I'm-in-my-fifties-and-can't-get-off" poems aren't worth re-reading. My faves were "Punk Rock Your My Big Crybaby", "Grim Skeleton", "Love Returned", "To the Punks of Dawlish", "Love Forgiven", "Homework", "Ode to Failure", "Birdbrain!", and "Eroica". [...]


    11. Pretty good collection of Ginsberg from the early 1970s. The Plutonian Ode is classic Ginsberg, and several other poems are very interesting/funny/clever/important. I didn't care as much for the kind of cornier ones he did (pretty much all of the ones with rhymes) which just didn't seem to be up to his usual cleverness level. Maybe that was on purpose; surely Ginsy knew they weren't particularly astounding rhymes (most are Top 40 song-simple). But that's just me. Overall, it's worth a read if yo [...]


    12. LOVE HIM to death!!!! Beautiful writing; is able to really detail the gravity of nuclear warfare with a touch of the frivolity and quirkiness of the beatniks.


    13. Resumo el mensaje del libro en estos dos versos de Ginsberg:Arriba Arriba ciudadanos del mundo usad vuestros pulmonesContestad a los tiranos lo único que temen es vuestras lenguas
