Who says poets are softies? Shmoop introduces the “Bad Boys of Poetry”
Shmoop challenges you to see poetry in a new light – in a Rock classic, even. Our new analysis of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” just might change the way you think of Dylan – and poetry, for that matter. Also new in Poetry – and not for the faint of heart – Beat poet Allen Ginsberg’s controversial adrenaline-rush, “Howl” (recommended only for mature audiences).
