Illuminated poems by Allen Ginsberg( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illuminated Poems is the collaboration between two visionaries of different generations: Allen Ginsberg, the quintessential Beat and America's best-known poet, and Eric Drooker, an artist of the metropolis whose provocative images reflect life at the turn of the millennium. Illuminated Poems contains two never-before-published works, an introduction by Ginsberg and thirty-four poems from 1948 through the present day, including the poem "Howl" in its entirety. "Howl," perhaps the single poem that best captures the anguish and aspirations of the Beat Generation, was originally published forty years ago and is one of the most widely read poems of the century
Howl : a graphic novel by Allen Ginsberg( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The famous poem that began a major censorship trial. Illustrated with stills from the computer animation that was included in the 2010 movie by the same name. "Howl is a social commentary and revolutionary manifesto of Beats generation. The title Howl indicates protest as cry, cry for all exploitation, repression and subjugation. The poet asks people to cry against capitalism, exploitation, repression and subjugation. This poem, 'Howl' stands as the celebration of counter culture movement. The best minds of the 50s are destroyed by madness. This madness came in different forms. Those are scholars, best mind, and best generation. This madness came as a counterculture. Counter culture is not their choice, it is their compulsion. They suffered from hysteria when the dreams are postponed continuously. Howl presents a picture of a nightmare world and as some reviews predicted, the wasteland of its generation. The movement of Howl is from protest, pain, outrage, attack and lamentation to acceptance, affirmation, love and vision-from alienation to communion. The poet descends into an underworld of darkness, suffering and isolation and then ascends into spiritual knowledge, blessedness, achieved vision, and a sense of union with the human community and with God. The poem is unified with and the movement carried forward by resuming images of falling and rising, destruction and regeneration, starvation, under-nourishment, sleeping and waking, darkness and illumination, blindness and sight, death and resurrection. In Howl Ginsberg describes the desperation, the suffering and the persecution of a group of outcast, including himself who are seeking transcendent reality."--http://www.bachelorandmaster.com/britishandamericanpoetry/howl.html#.WP5M_fnytaQ

Blood song : a silent ballad by Eric Drooker( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From American Book Award winner Eric Drooker, this is a story for the ages, beginning with the agrarian past, through the industrial present, and into the technological future. A young woman bravely escapes a military assault on her island village, journeying across the ocean to arrive, unknowingly, in the Big City. There she meets and falls in love with a saxophone player, who makes heartfelt music. The police find and silence him, confiscating his saxophone and warning him not to make music again as it's strictly forbidden in the Big City. When the street musician continues to make music with his voice the police soon find and imprison him, making the future uncertain for the talented performer and the brave woman who loves him. Blood Song transcends the boundaries of conventional novels--a wordless tale written in the ancient language of pictures. Escaping a military assault and journeying across the ocean to the Big City, a young woman falls in love with a saxophone player who is later arrested for making music, which is forbidden. By the American Book Award-winning author of Flood!

"Every word in this film was spoken by the actual people portrayed. In that sense this film is like a documentary. In every other sense, it is different"--Title screen. In 1957, in San Francisco, poet Allen Ginsberg has just published "Howl." This distinctive work immediately generates a great deal of controversy. Publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti has been sued on charges of obscenity, as many feel the poem is simply too explicit for publication (it contains strong language and frank references to homosexuality). When prosecutor Ralph McIntosh and defender Jake Ehrlich go head to head in front of Judge Clayton Horn, freedom of expression hangs in the balance. For the author, filled with the heady joy of poetic success, the trial demands the courage of being Allen Ginsberg--himself
