Candor and Apocalypse in Allen Ginsberg's Howl

Skalleberg, Lucas (2008)
English Studies
Abstract
Why is Howl such a different poem? Why did it arouse such discussion on its publication? Why do we still read it today? The aim of this essay is to pinpoint the quality of the poem, dealing primarily with its prosody as well as the candor of the author. The conclusion is that Howl has qualities which, without regard to personal taste, are appealing, and thus lasting.
