America is an intensely personal poem written in 1956 from the collection titled How and Other Poems, making references to the alienation Ginsberg felt as a result of the culture of the McCarthy era combined with the values implied in the burgeoning suburbia. The longest line in the poem is a sentimental description of a Communist cell meeting his mother took him to when he was a child. .
