    Get it!

    This is an awesome tome! By publishing all of Ginsberg's work in chronological order, one gets the full weight of an autobiographical work through the poetry. I think this book is a requirement for the seasoned Ginsberg aficionado and a true asset for anyone interested in exploring the natural evolution of his poetry from rigid form to his signature open style. Complete with author's notes, this volume is a true success!

    "America, I've given you all and now I am nothing"

    The collected poems of Allen Ginsberg, is a wonderful and mind-stimulating read. Each poem leaves one in awe and wonderment over Ginsberg's well-crafted and freestyle verses. This book is great for the beatnik,the hippie, the poet, the writer, the young, the old, the skeptic, the anarchist, the cynic; for anyone who is open and willing to enter the mind of a brilliant and influential poet.
