Description
Information
In this new critical biography of Allen Ginsberg, Steve Finbow re-examines the life, poetry and politics of this crucial poet and activist, and discusses his position in American letters and culture. The book moves from the influences of childhood his poet father and schizophrenic mother to his meeting with Kerouac and Burroughs in the New York of the late 1940s and the birth of the Beat Generation. From his obsessive need to travel to his experiments in writing, sexuality and altered states of consciousness, we follow Ginsberg to Mexico and his interest in pre-Columbian art and religion; to India and his experiences of Hinduism and Buddhism, and to America and the hippy and punk movements of the 1960s and 70s, witnessing his slow absorption into American academia while remaining an iconoclast and champion of the disenfranchised.
