Howl : a graphic novel by Allen Ginsberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 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."--
Ted Joans papers by Ted Joans( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Ted Joans papers, 1941-2005, contains a wealth of literary manuscript material spanning the career of this surrealist artist and poet, as well as personal correspondence with friends and colleagues, and his professional and personal papers. The collection includes over eight hundred individual poems, many of which are unpublished, plus original manuscripts with corrections for two poetry collections, including the typescript and illustrations for New Duck Butter Poems. Other writings provide a thorough examination of the variety found in Joans' work, including original manuscripts of his non-fiction, fiction, short stories, essays, plays, jazz critiques, reviews, movies, translations, and prose, as well as his notes and a notebook. Among the earliest works is a poem from 1948, a play written in 1949, and translations completed in the 1950's. Prose contains a selection of long and short works on a variety of subjects. Much of the material is unpublished and includes drafts with holograph corrections. Dies Und Das, a literary magazine published in Germany, was edited by Ted Joans in the winter of 1985. A complete mock-up of the first issue has been retained and includes notes, layouts, paste-ups, galleys, and folios. Joans' papers contain correspondence, both personal and professional, from friends and colleagues, including Amiri Baraka, Stokely Carmichael, Diane di Prima, Bob Kaufmann, and Ishmael Reed. Of particular note is a handwritten note from Jack Kerouac, and letters from Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Allen Ginsberg. His professional papers include invitations to read, resumes, tributes, reviews, and clippings, as well as a small amount of memorabilia. There is a selection of artworks that illustrate his fascination with surrealist techniques and ideas, being both political and erotic. These artworks are primarily works on paper and include sketches, paintings on paper, and collages. Joans collected a large amount of news clippings, newspapers, flyers, newsletters and small underground papers on various topics, but generally focused around his concerns of race, politics, Black leaders, and arts and culture. His personal papers, though brief, include a scrapbook of photos, reviews and other news clippings from the early 1950's about his art and music career. Joans' papers conclude with an extensive amount of material related to his unrealized publication, "A Black Man's Guide to Africa." Consisting primarily of brochures, flyers, and other tourist ephemera these materials also include a brief, though tantalizing, clutch of writings about several of the African countries he visited, including an introduction to the guide itself
