Literary Gladiators: Episode 5- "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg

In the fifth episode of the first season, Nicole Sandra, Chris Steen, Charlie Gulizia, and I discuss and debate one of the most memorable works from our American Literature II class (even if Chris Steen was not in it). This poem happens to be "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg and brings about his view on society. Ginsberg does not hold back any punches as he expresses his concerns and brings into light topics and ideas that have rarely been discussed and if they were, in a very vague fashion. With almost eleven minutes of conversation, the four of us have quite a time picking this one apart.

I hope you enjoy this episode. The first season finale, where we discuss and debate Emily Dickinson's poetry, will be up within the next week or two. Next Thursday will be our first filming session for the second season and we have our eye on Monday, September 15th as the second season premiere. I will leave you with the link to the video.
