Howl and More Book to Movie News
Howl by Allen Ginsberg is considered to be a seminal work of the Beat Generation and was originally intended to be a performance piece. Later published by fellow Poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, it was banned and considered objectionable, until a ruling in 1957 said that it was not obscene. Even 50 years later, the impact of this poem has not yet been fully realized.
