    1. Wait Till I'm Dead: Uncollected Poems by Allen Ginsberg edited by Bill Morgan is the latest and possibly the last update to the complete works of Allen Ginsberg which already number at over 1,200 pages. Ginsberg needs little introduction even to the most secluded or unread person -- The standout poet from the Beat era who continued to write poetry until his death in 1997. Wait Til I’m Dead is a collection that spans Ginsberg entire career and from a variety of publications. Included are Marrah [...]

    2. English review at the bottomAllen Ginsberg es un autor que podía escribir sobre todo y ser reflexivo al respecto. No sólo escribió sobre eso, él hizo poesía, el tipo de poesía que uno desea que alguien recite y te haga sentir esas palabras en todos tus sentidos.Esta colección no es sólo una antología de la obra de Ginsberg, es una manera de ver su filosofía y saber cómo vivió su vida, porque esto es en orden cronológico e, incluso cuando no es una obra biográfica, encaja perfectame [...]

    4. Most of these poems are good, but the poems from the 40's are overly earnest, and his output in the later half of the 60's can be a bit trying.All together, it makes for a poor introduction to Ginsberg, but if you're already a fan you'll enjoy this volume.

    5. Find this review at Forever Lost in Literature!**I received a copy of Wait Till I'm Dead courtesy of Grove Press and NetGalley. Huge thanks to them!**Allen Ginsberg has become one of the greatest influence in American poetry and has helped to define what we now call the Beat Generation. Bill Morgan, a distinguished scholar of Allen Ginsberg, has edited this new collection of poems written by Allen Ginsberg, the first publication of Ginsberg work in over fifteen years. When I first read Ginsberg, [...]

    6. I really enjoy Allen Ginsberg's poems. They're eerie and have a distinguished feeling to them, something that makes them really Ginsberg-like. Wait Till I'm Dead is a wonderful mixture of his uncollected and even unpublished poems. The fact that they are sectioned into decades works well and creates this mythical feeling alongside the political atmosphere that's very keenly attached to the poems. The poems are very different and at the same time it's evident that they come from the one and same [...]

    7. When I first read Allen Ginsberg's published poems back in high school, it set fire to my brain. He provided the introduction (for me) to a completely alien type of poetry. Reading his previously unpublished poems after not reading him for ages reminds me of how I searched for his poems and eagerly took them in so long ago. This was an unexpected gift.I love how this collection is spread out over all of his decades, and features such a variety of subjects and forms. **eARC netgalley**

    8. I can see why the poems in this book were previously uncollected. Some read slow and dense like molasses. But if you're a Ginsberg fan like I am, you gotta read all of his work you can get your hands on. I liked being able to read his work in a chronological order and watch his style develop over time- from the 40's, 50's, and into the 60's and 70's and his signature style we know him for.

    9. Interesting and insightful'd been a few years since I last read anything by Ginsberg, but it's funny how a poet's personality can come back to you after so long. The poetry itself is somewhere between 4.5 and 5 stars from a b-sides/rarities/compilations perspective; what drags this down (and is addressed in the preface by the editor) are the notes and their placement. After each poem, he notes where it may have appeared (or if it was unpublished), but for more information you need to constantly [...]

    10. Of course I was going to give Ginsberg's poetry five stars - we all knew that.Wait Til I'm Dead is an incredible collection of Ginsberg's loose and unpublished poems spanning from the 1940s-1990s. Bill Morgan arranges the poems in chronological order and it brilliantly displays Ginsberg's change in writing style and his poems becoming more mature with age.Some of these poems, like 'New York to San Fran', would fit perfectly in Planet News and reminds me of 'Wichita Vortex Sutra'.As the poems hit [...]

    11. This posthumous collection of Ginsberg's work covers the entire span of his poetic career and, simply put, is not for everyone. I read most of the first 2 sections, the 40s and 50s, and almost threw in the towel but was suddenly struck by a thought - read the book backwards, so I did.There is some very good work here, indeed, nothing major, but, all in all, it is far better than, say, Cosmopolitan Greetings. A handful of these pieces belongs in the collected poems.Recommended particularly for lo [...]

    12. Death, depression, sex, revolution; Ginsberg had a lot ot say on so many subjects. The poems included all sound like streams of consciousness: "New York to San Fran," "A Night in the Village," and "You want Money" are all great examples.Ginsberg was a very sexually charged, counterculturally-inspired hippie who traveled the world and wrote beautiful "songs" about what he experienced and who he experienced. Some of my favorite quotes:"For Canfield is / But half a man - / The other half / Republic [...]

    13. Scattershot collection, unsurprisingly this long after his death. Some poems here are excellent, a few others total wastes of time, most somewhere in between. The chronological order makes it an interesting semi-autobiographical read and that's engaging, and there's charm and humour aplenty, but there are also poems few writers could have had published had they not been named AG. From page to page it's up and down, so this is really for completists. But as I'm one, I enjoyed it.

    14. Here are my favorites:Rep Gordon Canfield(Mine Own Dear Congressman)Canfield votes like aTypical politician,Guided strictly byNovember Intuition.For Canfield isBut half a man—The other halfRepublican.[Poem]The world's an illusionEverybody dies the day after they graduate High School

    15. Ginsberg has capacity to write poetry about almost any moment of life that escapes us. That shows a particular awareness of being alive in a complex and multicultural world, beyond sex, class, politics and education.

    16. SongWinds around the beaches blow;Things being as they are, althoughHalf crearly understood, and IUncurious of mysrery;Such thoughts as once were my despair,– The frantic sea, the silent air,The changing moon, the frigid shore –I find delight me more an more.I had no dreamed the sea so deep,The earth so dark; so long my sleep,I have become another child.I wake to see the world do wild.Allen Ginsberg, 1946("Wait Till I`m Dead", Poems incollected)

    17. Let’s Not Wait Till We’re Deadby Mark ChmielOver poetry, you didn’t gush. You read it. You read it with the tongue. You lived it. You felt how it moved you, changed you. How it contributed to giving your own life a from, a color, a melody. You didn’t talk about it and you certainly didn’t make it into the cannon fodder of an academic career.Pascal Mercier, Night Train to LisbonDear Carol,Allen Ginsberg died in 1997 and still the books keep coming. 2016 saw a volume published of his unc [...]

    18. Collected here for the first time are the poems dashed off to small journals, written for one-off publications, or simply unpublished all-together. It's not as good as Ginsberg's best work - obviously - but one or two stand up and suggest a similar power to his truly great work. And it's snack-able, digestible, and enjoyable. Worth it for fans.

    19. Masih belum ngerti soal puisi. Kumpulan puisi dari tahun 1940an sampai 1990an saya baca seperti jurnal hidup seorang Ginsberg. Menurut info dari internet, selain geng Beat, Ginsberg juga dimasukan dalam gerombolan penyair Confesionalism. Yang puisi-puisinya berfokus pada momen ekstrim pengalaman individu, kejiwaan, dan trauma pribadi, termasuk beragam hal yang tabu seperti penyakit jiwa, seksualitas, dan bunuh diri, sering pula mengangkat tema sosial yang lebih luas. Perang Vietnam, homoseksuali [...]

    20. Nothing significant. Did enjoy the way it was laid out. Chronologically and with place of composition. You could follow Allen’s travels around the world.

    21. I first studied Ginsberg and the Beat Generation in college, so I feel very fortunate to read his uncollected poetry now. Ginsberg is tragic, alluring, and maddening, and these poems are no exception. From my favorite—Amnesiac Thirst For Fame—to one about my hometown—Entering Kansas City High, I found this now-collection refreshing yet remarkably the same in regards to brutal social and political discussions and debates. Mixed between it all is a growing narrative of Ginsberg’s failing h [...]

    22. Allen Ginsberg is the most important poet of the second half of the 20th century. "Wait Till I'm Dead" gathers together uncollected poetry that has been published in various magazines and journals or unseen by the general public until now. The collection is divided by decades and by reading chronology we see Ginsberg's growth as a writer and some of the cultural (pop, political, etc.) that grabbed his attention. What is fascinating is just how good this work is. It could have been a part of any [...]

    23. Grove Press in this UNPUBLISHED POEMS OF ALLAN GINSBERG a rare look at the growth of a poet from his early poems that show a poet struggling to find a form for his expression, through various stages of his life and career and the steady growth of his poetic voice.Even in his early poems, we sense some of Ginsberg’s themes he will treat with greater complexity and a more powerful poetic form in some of his later works.Moreover those of us who have read Allan Ginsberg’s work through the years [...]

    24. Collecting fugitive pieces Ginsberg wrote from the 1940s until just before his death, Wait Till I'm Dead complements the Collected Poems. Nothing here that stands beside Howl or Wichita Vortex Sutra--no surprise there--but some pieces that flesh out the big picture. The highlights include a strong journal poem--New York to San Fran from July 1965--some funny zen meditations ("The Real Distinguished Thing") and several poems documenting Ginsberg's relationships with folks from Carl Solomon (a bit [...]

    25. A copy of Ginsberg's collected poems I bought when I was 14 can be singularly blamed for my love of poetry - with the magic of his poetry sweeping me up and changing me forever. Until this year many of his works were unfortunately unavailable to the public, with them being released in journals, papers and other sources that weren't compiled with the rest of of work. Thankfully this has now been rectified and these poems bristle with all the fire and energy that is found in Ginsberg's greatest wo [...]

    26. WAIT TILL I'M DEAD: UNCOLLECTED POEMSWritten by Allen GinsbergEdited by Bill MorganFebruary 2016; 256 PagesGenre: poetry★★★★(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)Other than Howl I have not read anything else by Ginsberg, and it appears I am missing out on a lot! I really enjoyed his uncollected poems. The poems are grouped by decades (1940s-1990s) and I have to say I enjoyed his earlier poems a lot better. I am not sure if it is the time or how Ginsberg [...]

    27. The Collected Poems of Allen Ginsberg appeared shortly after his death, but it was incomplete. Ginsberg was so prolific, having published in so many places and having written much that remained unpublished, that many poems were not included. The editor of this collection has worked hard to gather that missing material. As with any anthology, there are hits and misses and Ginsberg wrote a lot, not all of it great or even that good. However, there are some wonderful poems here, included among some [...]
