HOWL (2010) • James Franco stars as the young Allen Ginsberg— poet, counter-culture adventurer, and chronicler of the Beat Generation. In his famously confessional, leave-nothing-out style, Ginsberg recounts the road trips, love affairs, and search for personal liberation that led to the most

HOWL was 29-year-old Allen Ginsberg’s first published poem—but it instantly established him as a vital new voice for rapidly changing times. At once gritty and tender, rife with sex and drugs, driven by equal parts alienation and ecstasy, haunted by memories of childhood, oppression, and boyish love, and erupting in a rush of language with the rhythmic urgency of a jazz riff, the poem was a shock to the system in the midst of the grey flannel, Eisenhower ‘50s. In an instant, HOWL forecast the heat and fury of the ‘60s and helped to usher in cultural shifts that are still reverberating.

• The Beat Museum collection includes more than 1,000 photographs, rare books, posters and artifacts. • Many of the items in the collection were donated, often by people who knew the major figures of the Beat Generation, such as the writer Jack Kerouac.
