5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate 'Howl.', 20 July 2007
This review is from: Howl: Original Draft Facsimile, Transcript, and Variant Versions, Fully Annotated by Author, with Contemporaneous Correspond (Harper Perennial Modern Classics) (Paperback)
If you're a scholar of the poem, the poet, or even just a dedicated fan, this is the edition to own. Not only do you get to actually see copies of the original manuscript in every stage of the drafting process, the book also includes full correspondence between Ginsberg, his critics, his friends and his family. Barry Miles is a fantastic Ginsberg biogapher and Beat Generation scholar, and makes the perfect editor for this excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Howl: the inside story, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Howl: Original Draft Facsimile, Transcript, and Variant Versions, Fully Annotated by Author, with Contemporaneous Correspond (Harper Perennial Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Allen Ginsberg, a founder of the Beat Generation, lifts the lid on the creative process behind the writing of his best-known poem, 'Howl'. Fascinating not only for fans of anything Beat, but also a compelling insight for students of language and the creation of literature.

A very interesting look at how Alan Ginsberg's creative process worked and what was going on in that genius brain. Recommended for writers and lovers of poetry.
