Howl and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
HOWL, Part 1 is the best poem ever written in the English language. Many may disagree with me, but this is my opinion.
This is compact, dazzling emotion. It brings you somewhere most people never go and then brings you out the other side. It is raw and powerful and truthful and amazing, and one day I hope to write something this good.
That said, I don’t like Howl, Part 2 much at all. It is weak and vague and too much a token of Ginsberg’s over-fascination with different rhythms.
Still, that’s no excuse. If you haven’t read Howl, you need to. And you need to do it right now!
