    This should make you feel good if you didnt like (hated) HOWL....

    On this day in 1955:
    The U.S. Customs Department confiscates 520 copies of Allen Ginsberg's book Howl, which had been printed in England. Officials alleged that the book was obscene.

    City Lights, a publishing company and bookstore in San Francisco owned by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, proceeded to publish the book in the fall of 1956. The publication led to Ferlinghetti's arrest on obscenity charges. Ferlinghetti was bailed out by the American Civil Liberties Union, which led the legal defense. Nine literary experts testified at the trial that the poem was not obscene, and Ferlinghetti was found not guilty.
    Howl, which created a literary earthquake among the literary community when Ginsberg first read the poem in 1955, still stands as an important monument to the countercultural fervor of the late 1950s and '60s. Ginsberg stayed at the forefront of numerous liberal movements throughout his life and became a well-loved lecturer at universities around the country. He continued to write and read poetry until his death from liver cancer in 1997.

    Even those of us who appreciate Howl for what it is/was, can feel better reading that I suppose as it vindicated in a way the artistic value of Howl.... or the artistic value of art in general...

    Now Ginsberg was far from a Cowboy poet... Neal Cassady was more of the Cowboy in his own way... Ramblin Jack Elliott sure... Ferlinghetti, Corso, Orlovsky, Kerouac, Burroughs not so much... though Burroughs had some rounds with a six shooter in his day... so what does Howl have to do with this? Hmmm... some places named within it, I suppose... or common vocabulary? Dunno...

    If the context and words of HOWL do not directly relate to the COWBOY theme, what about it could relate to finding the treasure and how? There is always more to these things than what appears. Maybe you didnt have to read it at all? I sure hope our COWBOY didnt know all of HOWL as he refelected.

    comes to mind... just purely and simply the name... If you read it, it is a roadmap - along the needle-scarred pockmarked arms of America itself... but if the words are unecessary, then it seems it might be

    Or yes... something else entirely...

    That phrase, 'something else entirely' is sort of like the silent 'e', it remains unspoken, but is omnipresent in pretty much everything I have ever done in these puzzles. I dig them, but truly not sure if I ever have anything of value... I am so in awe of the puzzlers here... I feel I am a pretty sharp guy, and i feel I sometimes come at these things from a whole different perspective, my greatest hope is that something I say will stir the process of somebody toward the discovery... and that I'll maybe, possibly, kinda sorta have a tiny little aha moment of my own along the way... on even one simple puzzle. Why Molnar hasn't solved this, dug it up, replanted it, made a new puzzle, had his brain erased and then solved the new puzzle already is beyond me...

    So yes, something else entirely is exactly up my alley...lol... you rascal you...

    Default Howl

    The word "howl" has already been mentioned before in another thread, the Musical References Thread. I believe the book and its contents have nothing to do with this "Cowboy" book. But the title, "Howl" is really the hint. The contents of the book itself is probably a red herring.

    That makes sense...

    I can't make sense howl to use it, but it does make sense...
