The early Ginsberg ramping up, exercising his voice and taking off with flowing breathe and acute observations, allowing poetry to become fleshy experience bursting false realities.

In Allen Ginsberg's book "Reality Sandwiches" Allen takes you into his world of poetry when the beat generation was at it's peak. Ginsberg is one of the all time greatest poets of all time and this shine's clear in Reality Sandwiches. It's a must read if you love or admire, or are curious about the culture of the beat generation.
