Allen Ginsberg (JUne 3, 1926 – April 5, 1997) was a poet and preeminent member of the Beat Generation of post-World War II poets. Ginsberg would later go on to play a large role in the counterculture movement of the 1960s. He wrote at length on the follies of American imperialism and militarism, and sought to serve as a light shone on those without power that the United States marginalized. He also was vocal about his own homosexuality and brought the persecution of peoples for their sexuality into a more public light.
