    themes, a great deal has been altered. The book focuses on the main characters Howl and Sophie and their conflict with the Witch of the Waste and Sophie 's emotional maturity. While these plot threads are in the film they play a much smaller role, giving way to a conflict with a neighboring kingdom and giving the film an anti-war theme not present in the book. While not a particularly faithful adaptation of the book, “Howl 's Moving Castle” is a capable and charming film that easily stands on…

    Howl by Allen Ginsberg, as I have researched it, is said to be one of the greatest poetic works in America. Upon reading the poem, however, I have felt the need to ask- why? Why is it that of all the poetry flying about, this one seemed to strike a chord with members of American society? Was it the controversy of the crude language used in this conservative 1950s era? Or perhaps the cold imagery of a dystopian wasteland? Was there something in the characters- the “who’s”- that the common person…

    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…

    My performance at Howl O’ Scream was pretty good. I arrived two hours early to help with the setup, put up decorations for the creepy trail, and helped with registrations until it was time for me to go down to my station. We had to wait 15-20 minutes until the maintenance man came to hook up the pipe to the propane tank and the grill. As we waited people came up and was asking how much longer until it would be ready. I told them we were out of order for about 10 minutes and we will be up and…

    “Howl” by Allen Ginsberg: Holy! Holy! Holy! Once in a great while, a poem comes along, that has so many hidden meanings you get lost in the spaces. There are an abundant amount of ways to interpret Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl.” To me, “Howl” depicts the five stages of loss and grief in an attempt to deal with Ginsberg’s emotional fallout from the loss of his friends. In 1969, Elizabeth Kubler Ross and David Kessler defined the five stages of loss and grief as 1.) Denial, 2.) Anger, 3.) Bargaining, 4)…
