      My brother gave me this book when I was just starting high school I got really, really into the beat poets then, and developed an obsession that burned too brightly not to snuff itself out But even though I try to move away from Ginsberg, he helped me discover poetry and my ideals about life in the mechanized and deadening world we ve been living in since the post war period To dismiss him would be unfair and ridiculous His words still haunt my mind on a regular basis My favorite poem of his, I [...]

      The collected poems of Allen Ginsberg remains to be the books of poetry I most often return to Though his early and late writings lack the revolutionary focus and fire of Howl, though he spends in my opinion far too many pages carving out, in tingling detail, sexual events and fantasies, though his apparent need for acceptance and praise somtimes leak through, I am powerless to say no This volume is absolutely encompassing the lifetime portfolio of one of America s most well known and controvers [...]

    3. Jana on said:

      I am not a huge Ginsberg fan There is frequently too much of the ego in his work for my taste and many of his earlier works are in my opinion rant than stream of consciousness as they have been described despite my sympathy with his causes That said, there is also no disputing his influence on the poetry scene in America In my opinion it is his poems of place, however, rather than the political poems that will stand the test of time No one does creative concrete imagery better than Ginsberg His [...]

      So far i ve dug the way Ginsburg s poems that deal with events in US History are very matter of fact, sure Ginsburg has his opinions but they re written in a wry, witty way so that they do not feel self righteous or preachy to his views.

      What a great collection to have to turn to whenever you want to visit a true master

      A brilliant collection of poems by Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, 1926 1997.

    8. Zack Andresen on said:

      Lots and lots of shitty poetry, especially in the earlier years However when you do find a good one, it is a real gem I would recommend reading this alongside Barry Mile s biography on Ginsberg It really adds to the poetry to know the story behind it.

    9. Cristhian on said:

      Desconozco si es la totalidad de los poemas de Allen pero vaya que es unq colecci n cronol gica bastante amplia En momentos llega a ser un tipo de libreta de viajes y es algo hermoso ver al mundo como el lo quizo ver.

      Should be required reading for all angst ridden teenagers getting high on hormones and other illicit substances.

      allen ginsberg, through his poetry prophesizes about his, our history, and his spirit is so alive a master whitman is proud.

    12. Madison Hewett on said:

      Howl is my favorite poem of all time I even have a tattoo inspired by it If you re not into poetry, at least read that poem It ll change your life.

    13. Bernie Gourley on said:

      This collection is actually 13 collections bound together in one volume that presents much of the published poetry of the Beat poet Allen Ginsberg over the second half of the 20th century till his death in 1997 Ginsberg is probably best known for Howl, which is both the name of the third collection in this book and the poem for which it was named i.e I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, However, Ginsberg s work is extensive, and one can find many a lesser known gem inside.

      From my journal Just finished Collected Poems 1947 1997 by Ginsberg Wow The longest book I ve ever read The most poetry by a single author I ve ever read The Death and Fame poems at the end are particularly poignant, but the poems through the entire book are mostly good Surprisingly easy to follow, but I think the 2 biographies I ve read of him helped a lot with context I m really a Ginsberg fan now, perhaps even so than Burroughs, and that is saying something I m glad I got to see Ginsberg rea [...]

      This is the best book of poetry I ve ever read This is the best book I ve ever read This is the best book I ever will read The Collected Poems of Allen Ginsberg changed my life They introduced me to the Beats, and rekindled my love of literature The poems here are explicit, uncensored, and among the finest, most eloquently worded pieces of art in the history of the english language Ginsberg, famous for Howl, produced a huge body of work in his lifetime My favorite is Kaddish Chances are, if you [...]

    16. Gregory Frye on said:

      I read these poems in tandem with Bill Morgan s biography where the works and their pages numbers are annotated along side the text So to have read all Ginsberg in biographical context is an extraordinary gift to me, and I don t think I would have been able to appreciate his work so much without the biography.Needless to say, the reading was a massive study that took a long time I just finished and am still trying to process everything If you re a fan of free verse, playful words, colorful mind [...]

    17. Derek Pyle on said:

      Robert Hunter I remember talking with Allen Ginsberg about our mutual approaches to imagery I said, You got a pretty good way with words, but, you ve got a lot of cockroaches running through your poems And he said, Cockroach is a beautiful word Well, I guess it s just a matter of taste I would tend not to use the word cockroach in a poem because I don t find it beautiful I find a lot of Ginsberg s poetry empowering and good dharmic meditations, but there are too many cockroaches for me.

    18. James Carmichael on said:

      I did not think I d really like Ginsberg s poetry I d gotten the idea that he was overrated, or that his fame was a matter of personality the Beats rather than poetic chops.I was surprised by the depth and care of many of these And also with how well it s aged many of the poems seem much less like artifacts of the odd moment that was the Beats, and like I guess, to me, are vernacular poetic statements that still echoed and rang for this reader today.

    19. Matt on said:

      You re never done reading Ginsberg Interest in him started to develop amongst me and my friends in late college I found this book in a Barnes and Noble in Seattle early 2012 and now carry it with me most places I go It has inspired house poetry sessions and really opens up the soul for viewing Ginsberg is a genious.

    20. Peter Salva on said:

      These are great poems I first became acquainted with Ginsberg in high school, and then I only knew Howl and America However, reading I Celebrate Myself, as a companion to these poems provided greater context for his writing And as I read through these poems I gained a wider appreciation for Ginsberg s poetry, even his often overlooked later works.

    21. Kristin O. on said:

      Okay, so I only read Howl Okay, so I only read PART of Howl But I really feel like I need to take a class on that poem alone Because I was confused Very confused I think I liked it though you know, what I read of it until I realized this book was WAY overdue at the library.
