Poetry & Drama • 28.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Allen Ginsberg was one of the important poets of the last century, and any opportunity to survey his substantial oeuvre is welcome. Narrator Greg D. Barnett is strong on the meaning and emotional content of the poems. Mispronunciations will take some listeners out of the poems, many of which are distinctly embedded in the political and spiritual events of Ginsberg's time. Other listeners may have trouble with the graphic nature of the poems about love and sex. Much of Ginsberg's work is not for the squeamish, but it rewards anyone with an interest in twentieth-century American poetry. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2024]
