    The poems of Mind Breaths show two distinctive sides of Ginsberg s poetics the personal and the transcendental In Ginsberg s previous collection, these two sides have co existed harmoniously, articulated in separate poems or together in the same poem In Mind Breaths, however, there is a disharmony evident in the divide of these two sides indeed, they don t co exist as harmoniously as they did in Ginsberg s early work, but rather seem to have retreated to opposing poles where they have develo The poems of Mind Breaths show two distinctive sides of Ginsberg s poetics the personal and the transcendental In Ginsberg s previous collection, these two sides have co existed harmoniously, articulated in separate poems or together in the same poem In Mind Breaths, however, there is a disharmony evident in the divide of these two sides indeed, they don t co exist as harmoniously as they did in Ginsber...

    this volume forms a central tenet of Ginsberg s oeuvre in both part and whole, it is a form of meditation as mediation with the Oversoul, a conversation in form of free verse playing light on dark, the collection which links Ginsberg back to Blake judging from what little I have read of either, so do shake the salt from my cells as you please.Bought a copy from the river and sold it to a different shop in hopes of passing on its wisdom Hope it found a home or better still a new mind in which this volume forms a central tenet of Ginsberg s oeuvre in both part and whole, it is a form of meditation as mediation with the Oversoul, a conversation in form of free verse playing light on dark, the collection which links Ginsberg back to Blake judging from what little I have read of either, so do shake the salt from my cells as you please.Bought a copy from the river and sold it to a d...

    One poem that really struck me in this collection is Yes And It s Hopeless, in which Ginsberg reflects on many of the problems in the world we live in published in 1978, with poems written between 1972 and 1977 wars, drug problems, assassinations, etc with a sense of despair In many of these poems, Ginsberg anguishes over the state of affairs in the world oil pollution, the assassination of JFK, the shootings at Kent State University in 1970 , in others over his own lost youth and t One poem that really struck me in this collection is Yes And It s Hopeless, in which Ginsberg reflects on many of the problems in the world we live in published in 1978, with poems written between 1972 and 1977 wars, drug problems, assassinations, etc with a sense of despair In many of these poems, Ginsberg anguishes over the state of affairs in the wor...

    Ginsberg is one of the most thought provoking writers I have come across He encourages the mind to grow expansively beyond the conventional limitations of his day and our present day, as well This collection of poems, written in the 70s after most of his dear friends had passed away, struck me as saddening Everyone he loved and admired was long gone and all he had were their words and their memories I thought to myself, How heartbreaking, almost immediately realizing I myself am in the sam Ginsberg is one of the most thought provoking writers I have come across He encourages the mind to grow expansively beyond the conventional limitations of his day and our present day, as well This collection of poems, written in the 70s after most of his dear friends had passed away, struck me as saddening Everyone he loved and admired was long gone and all he had ...

    Um I dunno I had a hard time focusing on these poems None of them really engaged me Sadly, many seem very dated because of hot topic references I suppose they are historically relevant I ve never read Howl Maybe I should have started there.

    This is my first Ginsberg collection, and I m not sure how manyI m going to try While the percussion and the music of some of the poems were fun and exhilarating, I found most of the book to be boring and tedious Not all of it is Ginsberg s fault The book only covers the mid 1970s, and I wasn t yet born, let alone sophisticated enough to understand world events via poems I m sure they would ve hit me harder as a contemporary What I did appreciate in the book was Ginsberg dealing with This is my first Ginsberg collection, and I m not sure how manyI m going to try While the percussion and the music of some of the poems were fun and exhilarating, I found most of the book to be boring and tedious Not all of it is Ginsberg s fault The book only covers the mid 1970s, and I wasn t yet born, let alone sophisticated enough to understand world events via poems I m sure they would ve hit me harder as a contemporary What I did appreciat...

    It seems like every collection of Ginsberg s work has some pieces of stand out poetry, and this one s no different Mind Breaths, the titular poem of the collection, is like an extension of Howl, and Sweet Boy, Gimme Yr Ass is a triumphant celebration of the poet s sexuality Keep your eyes peeled, too, for Hadda Be Playing on the Jukebox, a vicious indictment of the government and the wars that they carry out that was adapted by Rage Against the Machine.Ginsberg s work here is as sharp as ever It seems like every collection of Ginsberg s work has some pieces of stand out poetry, and this one s no different Mind Breaths, the titular poem of the collection, is like an extension of Howl, and Sweet Boy, Gimme Yr Ass is a triumphant celebration of the poet s sexuality Keep your eyes peeled, too, for Hadda Be Playing on the Jukebox, a vicious ind...

    As talented as ever, but I found this particular volume to be depressing, dark and full of unsettling imagery which I do not care to describe here.I ve enjoyed previous volumes of his work, but the only thing I liked about this one was the title.
