Dr. Bill Presents: Allen Ginsberg

April 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Celebrate the work of Allen Ginsberg who, with William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac, formed the core of the Beat Generation.

Best known for his poem “Howl”, which denounced what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the US. The poem attracted widespread publicity in 1957 when it became the subject of an obscenity trial because it described heterosexual and homosexual sex at a time when sodomy laws made homosexual acts a crime in every state. Not only did the courts decide that “Howl” was not obscene but that it was an important work of literary art. His collection The Fall of America shared the annual National Book Award for Poetry in 1974, and his book Cosmopolitan Greetings: Poems 1986–1992 became a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1995.
