HOWL KADDISH AND OTHER POEMS PDF

Howl, Kaddish and Other Poems is a collection of his most influential work. I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night, who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural darkness of cold-water flats floating across the tops of cities contemplating jazz. The poem is highly autobiographical. Ginsberg assumes the role of witness, confessor, and victim. There is a personal redress, a mournful cry for his life, and a platonic love for Carl Solomon, a friend Ginsberg had met while in a mental institution. There is a rotational nature of humanity, and most eras are not without precedent.
