This paper investigates the style and devicesin which Allen Ginsberg evokes jazz and its aesthetics in his poetry, namely Howl to produce a modern to postmodern cultural phenomenon in the American culture. Howl exemplifies a sort of stylistic interdisciplinary and intertextuality in which Ginsberg fuses jazz musicality and techniques in its lines and stanzas. Thus, Ginsberg offers his audience a new fusion of artistic poetic experimentations with devices, techniques, and improvisation. Also, this paper tries to recollect relevant critiques relevant to postmodern aesthetic and thematic forces in the postmodern literature of Beat poets, such as Allen Ginsberg as long as he is one of the best who show such twining of jazz musicality and tempos in his masterpiece Howl.
