Allen Ginsberg's Poetry by Allen Ginsberg

Allen Ginsberg's Poetry is a collection of poems in free verse and various other Beat styles. The poems are concerned largely with the concerns of the Beat generation, a moment in art history defined by rebellion, counterculture, drug culture, and travel. Ginsberg ruminates on the state of his fellow writers and on their decay in a culture moving rapidly toward conservatism in the wake of the 1960s. His poems further ruminate on homosexuality, psychedelic experiences, and death.
