Introduction Allen Ginsberg was a poet of the immediate, and his lesson, if there is one, is that there is a kind of rapture to be had from being completely present in the moment, from crying out in a primal but perceptive and intelligent way about the sanctity of personality and human freedom in the face of oppressive social and political forces. Thoughts are linear and always old, but one’s immediate perception, when allowed to get in with no filters from that other, more worldly function of thinking, yields surprising insights into the reality...

This paper explores that complexity in terms of three questions: on whether Ginsberg portrays his mother in a negative or positive frame, in the end; on Ginsberg's feelings relating to mortality in general and his mother's demise in particular; and a look on process and instances in Kaddish that reflects Kerouac's prescription for writing spontaneously. This paper posits that in general, the poem paints a positive picture of Ginsberg's mother; that Ginsberg's feelings...

...Allen Poe The short story is an art form that was first mastered by the 19th century writer Edgar Allen Poe. Poe had been left an orphan at a very young age and grew up in the house of adoptive parents, the Allens, who did not understand his more passionate temperament. After struggling to find his niche, Poe’s first book of poems was published when he was only 19 and he began writing short stories at the age of 23 (Conklin, 1989). In perfecting this form, Poe said “If any literary work is too long to be read at one sitting, we must be content to dispense with the immensely important effect derivable from unity of impression” (Mowery, 1997). As he tells the tale... of the twin brother and...
