America which has been written in the heydays of political turmoil in the US and at the brink of Vietnam War, from the early lines of the poem you see the poet is really concerned with the political life of his country and is developing an anti-establishment tone, mentioning the dates and events.

When I first read Allen Ginsberg's poems, like 'Howl' and 'A Supermarket in California', some years ago, they made a big impression on me. Some of his poems are first-rate: others are not. He did not need to use as many vulgarisms as he did. He was good enough without using profanity.
