Customer Reviews of Cosmopolitan Greetin: Poems 1986-1992


From Our Editors

Fifty years following his "founding" of the Beat Generation, Ginsberg has written a powerful collection of poems in which he fearlessly confronts evil--from the ravages of capitalism to the destruction of the environment--and death, though his zest for life remains constant and undiminished.

Editorial Reviews

"Ginsberg is responsible for loosening the breath of American poetry at mid-century...Most of all, [he] has demonstrated that there is nothing in American social and erotic reality which cannot find a place [there]...[His] powerful mixture of Blake, Whitman, Pound, and Williams, to which he added his own volatile, grotesque, and tender humor, has assured him a memorable place in modern poetry." (Helen Vendler)
