Allen Ginsberg helped found the Beat Generation, along with Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs in 1944 in New York City. His poetry, especially the masterpieces "Howl" and "Kaddish", formed and influenced a generation of writers, musicians, and poets. Now, on the third anniversary of his death comes this paperback edition of Ginsberg's last verses, written in the years shortly before his death, and including a preface by poet Robert Creeley and an after word by Ginsberg's amanuensis, Bob Rosenthal. With Ginsberg's signature style and singular perspective remarkably present in each of these poems, Death & Fame allows readers one final glimpse into the workings of this extraordinary artist's mind and imagination.
As is. A small amount of notes/underlining.
