    “A Supermarket in California” is a poem written by Allen Ginsberg. Taking into account of the speaker’s past magnificent works, it made me think the author is trying to analyze his self-identity. Conceivably, this is Allen Ginsberg himself looking for a deeper connection with feelings of emptiness in his sub-consciousness. Is the author creating more space in his own sovereign reality? In other words, is this creating less dense by clearing out the disconnected emotions and readjusting with…

Allen Ginsberg calls out Walt on thinking of himself as “The modern man”, and discusses it in his poem “A supermarket in California”. Allen Ginsberg uses the setting and tone of “A Supermarket in California” as a means of mocking the basis of…

    It is clear to any reader of "Howl" that Allen Ginsberg is upset with the status quo, in fact, one might even borrow Ginsberg own words about how he feels about his “generation” when he states that they, “let themselves be fucked in the ass by saintly motorcyclists, and screamed with joy.” What a spit in the face. As I continued to read Ginsberg’s profanity-laced and prolonged verbal assault I was sure about convinced about one thing; Ginsberg is demanding for his generation to change by beating…

    Allen Ginsberg's Howl was exactly as the title suggested; a howl. His protest against capitalism and conformity called into question what it truly meant to be normal. His explicit images of sex, drugs, and violence appalled societies' average readers. Through the chaos, however, something about Howl spoke to me. Today, we live in a world where we scrutinize mental health and, in this state, I found myself empathizing with young Ginsberg and the horror of his experiences. Ginsberg broke Howl up…

    “I don’t think there is any truth. There are only points of view.” Allen Ginsberg’s famous quote is one that inspires the continued analysis and explication of poetry. Poetry is so important because much like jazz, it has a form all of its own. Poetry has no boundaries and can be created on the fly. And without the continued analysis and emphasis on great poetic works, like “Howl,” young writers would be dissuaded to take up the art form. To this day, scholars and students alike have…
