I’m With You

I'm With You

Alan Ginsberg dedicated the third section of Howl to Carl Solomon, whom he met at a psychiatric hospital in 1949. Ginsberg sympathized with Solomon, who, like Ginsberg’s mother, struggled with mental illness and received shock treatment. He describes the events that occurred in Solomon’s life, including the horrors he endured in the psychiatric institution (Rockland.)
