Summary

Famous for energizing the Beat Generation literary movement upon his historic encounter with Gregory Corso, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs in mid-century New York City, Ginsberg influenced several generations of writers, musicians, and poets. This volume of final poems commemorates the anniversary of Ginsberg's death, and includes the verses he wrote in the years shortly before he died.
