Irwin Allen Ginsberg ( pron.: / ˈ ɡ ɪ n z b ər ɡ / ; June 3, 1926 – April 5, 1997) was an American poet and one of the leading figures of the Beat Generation in the 1950s. He vigorously opposed militarism , economic materialism and sexual repression . Ginsberg is best known for his epic poem " Howl ", in which he celebrated his fellow "angel-headed hipsters" and harshly denounced what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the United States.
Hipster or hepcat , as used in the 1940s, referred to aficionados of jazz , in particular bebop , which became popular in the early 1940s. The hipster adopted the lifestyle of the jazz musician, including some or all of the following: dress, slang, use of cannabis and other drugs, relaxed attitude, sarcastic humor, self-imposed poverty and relaxed sexual codes.
