About Allen Ginsberg
Allen Ginsberg was an American poet famous for his stance on capitalism, drugs and gay rights.
Allen is remembered for his highly controversial poem “Howl”, which attacks America’s materialistic culture and capitalism. The poem caused an uproar and drew international attention when it became the focus of a pornography trial. The poem contains graphic sexual language and openly discusses homosexuality, which was considered extremely taboo at the time. The judge ruled in Allen’s favor and that set an important precedent for freedom of speech and upholding First Amendment rights. He spent the rest of his life continuing to write about things that pushed moral boundaries.
