'Howl' is a short book of poetry, but each poem enclosed hits you with full force and intensity. They open you up to feeling and for that brief moment in time you are completely immersed in the world Ginsberg creates. I'm unaware of the controversy surrounding these poems, but all I can say is that these are some great poems that deserve to be read by a much wider audience. Poetry is a unique and powerful experience (both reading and writing) and this collection is no different. Well worth a look.
