Jason Schinder: The Poem That Changed America

Schinder, Jason. The Poem That Changed America: "Howl" Fifty Years Later (New York: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2006)

The Poem That Changed America is a collection of essays (mostly by poets and other writers) about Ginsberg and his opus. It works well as a companion to the Barry Miles-edited edition of "Howl" that I reviewed last year, although it's nowhere near as essential. The hardcover edition of Schinder's book contains a CD of Ginsberg reading "Howl," which may be enough to justify the purchase.
