Blurb: Carlos Williams (Introduction). The title Howl indicates protest as cry, cry for all exploitation, repression and subjugation. The poet asks people to cry against capitalism, exploitation, repression and subjugation. This poem, 'Howl' stands as the celebration of counter culture movement. The best minds of the 50s are destroyed by madness.

Howl is a social commentary and revolutionary manifesto of Beats generation. The poem relies on linguistic grandeur, operatic catalogs, obscene references, and rambling digressions. The poem is in elegiac tone; the tone of mourning. Ginsberg presents the long list of the activities; therefore it is called catalog technique.
