Allen Ginsberg WHITE SHROUD POEMS 1980-1986 1986 Author-Signed First Printing Rock-And-Roll Lyrics Rap Surreal Anecdotes American Literature

by National Book Auctions

August 2, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $100 - $250

Description: Title: White Shroud: Poems, 1980-1985Author: Allen Ginsberg - Irwin Allen Ginsberg was an American poet and one of the leading figures of both the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the counterculture that soon would follow. He vigorously opposed militarism, economic materialism and sexual repression. Ginsberg is best known for his epic poem "Howl", in which he denounced what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the United States.In 1957, "Howl" attracted widespread publicity when it became the subject of an obscenity trial, as it depicted heterosexual and homosexual sex at a time when sodomy laws made homosexual acts a crime in every U.S. state. "Howl" reflected Ginsberg's own homosexuality and his relationships with a number of men, including Peter Orlovsky, his lifelong partner. Judge Clayton W. Horn ruled that "Howl" was not obscene, adding, "Would there be any freedom of press or speech if one must reduce his vocabulary to vapid innocuous euphemisms?"Ginsberg was a practicing Buddhist who studied Eastern religious disciplines extensively. He lived modestly, buying his clothing in second-hand stores and residing in downscale apartments in New York’s East Village. One of his most influential teachers was the Tibetan Buddhist, the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa, founder of the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado. At Trungpa's urging, Ginsberg and poet Anne Waldman started The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics there in 1974.Ginsberg took part in decades of non-violent political protest against everything from the Vietnam War to the War on Drugs. His poem "September on Jessore Road," calling attention to the plight of Bangladeshi refugees, exemplifies what the literary critic Helen Vendler described as Ginsberg's tireless persistence in protesting against "imperial politics, and persecution of the powerless."His collection "The Fall of America" shared the annual U.S. National Book Award for Poetry in 1974. In 1979 he received the National Arts Club gold medal and was inducted into the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. In 1986 he was awarded the Golden Wreath of the Struga Poetry Evenings in Struga, Macedonia. Ginsberg was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1995 for his book "Cosmopolitan Greetings: Poems 1986–1992." (Information courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Harper & Row, PublishersCity: New YorkYear: 1986Printing Information: Signed EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xiv/89 pagesWidth: 6.5" Height: 9.75"Book Details: "An outstanding new collection of poems from Allen Ginsberg at age sixty, "White Shroud" confirms the reputation of America's best known poet for bold experiment and provocative verse. The title poem, "White Shroud," is a dream apparition, a bittersweet magical epilogue to Ginsberg's "terrible masterpiece" "Kaddish," the elegy for his mother written twenty-five years ago. Dream visions run like a thread through much of the book, including an encounter with the spirit of William Carlos Williams, who dictates instructions to the dreaming poet in verse remarkably akin to Williams's own form." (Text from the front flap)Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed first printing of this poetry collection. The title page is signed by the author and dated 1/13/93. The letters/initials "A.H." (encircled) and "S.
