So a friend of mine at work says: Word Wabbit, you gotta read “Howl.” And I’m all like: I have a million books—I can’t afford to buy another!
He says, No it’s really short. You can read it in an evening. But you might be depressed after.
So I go online, there it is for free at Poetry Foundation.org—simply a great resource.
So for anyone who’s interested, here’s Howl: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/179381
One thought on “Howl by Allen Ginsberg”
Hi, yea its great! Saw the film a few years ago too and it’s remarkably close to the poem, as well as having some fantastic, futuristic animation.
