One thought on “Video: Big A

  1. An amazing confessional take on the society that Allen Ginsberg was touting about. “Howl” expresses the pent up frustration, artistic energy, and self-destruction of a generation that Ginsberg felt was being suppressed by a dominant American culture that valued conformity over artistic license and opportunity. For a poet or the individual to howl, meant that that person was breaking from the habit of conformity to the virtues and ideals of American civilization and expressing a counter-cultural vision of free expression. Ginsberg also expresses the madness of society which does not accept literature and jazz anymore, extremely well.
