Description
Information
One of the key figures of twentieth-century American literary and cultural history, Allen Ginsberg was poet and prophet, revolutionary, political activist and a leading founder of the Beat Generation. Displaying a fantastic range of practical learning, this collection of his writings - essays, autobiographical fragments, letters, magazine articles - expresses his always unsettling and controversial thoughts on everything from the Vietnam war, freedom of speech, homosexuality and drug use to his own poetry and prose of Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs.
'A pioneer of openness and lifelong model of candour. Ginsberg stood for freedom of expression and for coming out of all the closets long before others did.'
William S. Burroughs, The New York Times
