Banyen's Description: 

This collection of poems by one of the greatest literary and cultural figures of the 20th century—in Allen’s own unique incantatory voice, recorded in 1995 when he was in fine form just two years before his death—is a rare treat.

Upon the release of his first published work, Howl and Other Poems, in 1956, Allen Ginsberg became the unlikely force of a movement that would change a generation. Literature, art, sex, love, family, politics: nothing would ever be the same. The Beat Generation was born through Ginsberg and his friends.

This collection of more than two dozen poems in verse and song is the best of the best, celebrating someone who was of his time, ahead of his time, and whose legacy will transcend time.

Allen’s voice was a gravel-bed, a rumble that rolled from him… It was old Allen, sad, ancient, funny and beautiful, on stage those nights. —Geoff Manaugh

Included are Howl, Kaddish, Pull My Daisy, A Strange New Cottage in Berkeley, A Supermarket in California, Sunflower Sutra, America, Many Loves, To Aunt Rose, I am a Victim of Telephone, Kral Majales, Who Be Kind To, City Midnight Junk Strains, On Neal’s Ashes, September on Jessore Road, Mind Breaths, Jahweh and Allah Battle, Lay down Your Mountain, Don’t Grow Old, Father Death Blues, Plutonian Ode, White Shroud, Sphincter, Personals Ad, Hum Bomb, After Lalon, Put Down Your Cigarette Don’t Smoke, Charnal Ground, C’mon Pigs of Western Civilization, New Stanzas for Amazing Grace

Awarded the medal of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres by the French minister of culture in 1993, and co-founder of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at
NaropaUniversity, the first accredited Buddhist college in the Western world, Allen Ginsberg died on April 5, 1997.
