This is a research essay about the poet Allen Ginsberg. It needs to stress the literary importance of this poet, his contributions to literature, the importance of studying him, and how his work has influenced other authors.
I’d like there to be an emphasis on his greatest work “Howl”. If it is at all possible, the thesis sentence might include the first sentence from “Howl” below.
“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.”
