Allen Ginsberg reading “Howl”

Authors. Writers. Literature. Poem. Allen Ginsberg www.beatbooks.com

I took yesterday off from blogging because it’s okay to take a break from writing every once in a while (I’m really just trying to write everyday–the struggle is real), but I thought it would be cool to share this video of Allen Ginsberg reading “Howl” in advance of tomorrow’s post (you’ll understand more after I post it).

I recently started reading Ginsberg and I love his writing voice, and while I think he comes from a different perspective (pushing against the Baby Boomers), his themes are fairly universal. So, sit back, and listen to Ginsberg read his landmark poem that sparked a lot of controversy.
