Summary
"Ginsberg's powerful and unflinchingly honest poetry empowered the counterculture of the 50s and 60s along with his memorable persona and his messages of peace and love. In this biographical narrative poem, Ed Sanders, a Ginsberg contemporary and friend, and one of the Beats' favorite sons, charts a path through what he calls the "Forest Ginsberg."" "An unsentimental elegy, an epic tribute, a dramatic documentary portrait, The Poetry and Life of Allen Ginsberg reveals in detail the man and the artist through the eyes and in the voice of a Ginsberg intimate, a fellow poet and admirer, a man who shares the ecumenical outlook and resolute social conscience of one of our century's most popular and controversial literary figures. Sanders leads us chronologically through history as witnessed, reflected and created by Ginsberg, introducing us to Ginsberg's friends and foes and the luminaries and common men and women alike that populated his world. Ed Sanders's poem is a journalistic biography of a man and his passionately unique world view."--BOOK JACKET
