Irwin Allen Ginsberg (June 3, 1926 – April 5, 1997) was an American Beat Generation poet born in Newark, New Jersey.
Ginsberg is best known for 'Howl' (1956), a long poem about consumer society's negative human values.Silberman reports another Ginsberg epigram from his 1977 class: "Poetry is the realization of the magnificence of the actual." The works on the "Celestial Homework," Silberman comments, "are gates to that magnificence."

In his freshman year he met fellow undergraduate Lucien Carr, who introduced him to a number of future Beat writers including Jack Kerouac, William S.
