The Dreadful Life of a Fake, Neon-Colored Daisy

Allen Ginsberg 's A Supermarket

- Allen Ginsberg’s “A Supermarket in California” exhibits stark contrasts in tone. It begins downtrodden and disheartened as the speaker wanders the dark streets alone at night under the trees. The tone soon transforms, becoming more magical and whimsical as the speaker enters the “neon fruit supermarket.” By the end of the poem we experience a shift toward a more reverent tone. Ginsberg exemplifies Whitman’s influence on his own poetry, and emulates Whitman’s rambling style. (Kriszner & Mandell, 534) I intend to explore the varying tones and themes present including an adoration for Walt Whitman by the speaker and a general sense of embracing life in all its wonder in “A Supermarket in Califo...   [tags: Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg, Ezra Pound]
