9780062015174: Howl: A Graphic Novel

First published in 1956, Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" is a prophetic masterpiece--an epic raging against dehumanizing society that overcame censorship trials and obscenity charges to become one of the most widely read poems of the century. Now a major motion picture, starring James Franco, Howl was directed by two-time Academy Award-winners Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman, who hired Eric Drooker to animate the poem. Howl: A Graphic Novel visualizes the poem--stanza by stanza--with full color animation art Drooker designed for the film. [Printed on recycled paper with Soy Ink, this luxury art book has french flaps and spot gloss on cover.]

From the Author:

Introduction by Eric DrookerFirst time I hung with Allen Ginsberg, one long hot summer night in 1988, the streets were hopping mad. Riot cops on horseback were slowly moving in our direction, enforcing a midnight curfew, but the chanting crowd refused to leave Tompkins Square Park--a refuge for punks, homeless, squatters, artists and other riffraff who'd been "keeping real estate prices down" on Manhattan's Lower East Side. When the police charged, swinging clubs, we lost each other in the crowd.      When I bumped into Allen a year later, and he realized that I was the artist who'd created so many of the street posters in the neighborhood, he admitted that he'd been peeling them off brick walls and lampposts, and collecting them at home. He suggested we do a poster together. Over time, we collaborated on numerous projects, bouncing his words off my pictures.      Our book, Illuminated Poems, became an underground classic, and ultimately caught the attention of filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. They were just starting to direct a feature film about Allen's early poem "Howl" and it's historical significance--with Hollywood actors playing Ginsberg and his friends, Jack Kerouac and Neil Cassady. When they approached me with the ingenious idea of animating "Howl," I thought they were nuts and said "sure, let's animate Dante's Inferno while we're at it!" Then they told me I'd work with a team of studio animators who would bring my pictures to life . . . how could I say no?      Last time I hung with Allen Ginsberg was on a cold winter night three months before he died. Over the phone he'd invited me to join him for dinner at his favorite Chinese restaurant. As usual, we discussed current events, politics, and eventually got onto the subject of art. Allen brought up the painting The Triumph of Death by the 16th century master, Pieter Bruegel the Elder.  "Have you ever seen it . . . in real life?" he asked.  "No . . . not yet. Where is it?" I asked.  "It's in Spain, in the Prado Museum. It's enormous and fucking terrifying!" After supper we went up to his apartment, where Allen was in the process of getting rid of things he no longer needed.  "Hey Eric, you want this jacket? It looks about your size." He handed me a crimson-red blazer jacket. I tried it on. . . .  "Good fit" he said, "now it's yours."

From the Inside Flap:

"In publishing 'Howl,' I was curious to leave behind after my generation an emotional time bomb that would continue exploding in U.S. consciousness, in case our military-industrial-nationalist complex solidified into a repressive police bureaucracy.""I was also curious to see how [Eric Drooker] would interpret my work.  And I thought that with today's lowered attention span TV consciousness, this would be a kind of updating of the presentation of my work . . . To me, the megalopolis landscapes are the most interesting--that gigantic skyscraper vision. He really captured that sense of Moloch I was going for in the second section of 'Howl'--'Moloch whose buildings are judgment!'""I began collecting Drooker's posters soon after overcoming shock, seeing in contemporary images the same dangerous class conflict I'd remembered from childhood, pre-Hitler block print wordless novels . . . the solitary artist dwarfed by the canyons of a Wall Street megalopolis lay shadowed behind my own vision of Moloch. . . . What 'shocked' me in Drooker's scratchboard prints was his graphic illustration of economic crisis similar to Weimar-American 1930's Depressions. . . . Drooker illustrated the city's infrastructural stress, housing decay, homelessness, garbage-hunger and bitter suffering of marginalized families, Blacks and youth, with such vivid detail that the authoritarian reality horror of our contemporary dog-eat-dog Malthusian technoeconomic class-war became immediately visible. . . .  As I'd followed his work over a decade, I was flattered that so radical an artist of later generations found the body of my poetry still relevant, even inspiring. Our paths crossed often . . . "    - ALLEN GINSBERG
