Kaddish" also known as "Kaddish for Naomi Ginsberg (1894–1956)" is a poem by Beat writer Allen Ginsberg about his mother Naomi and her death on June 9, 1956. Ginsberg began writing the poem in the Beat Hotel in Paris in December 1957, completing it in New York in 1959. It was the lead poem in the collection Kaddish and Other Poems (1961). It is considered one of Ginsberg's finest poems, with some scholars holding that it is his best poem.
Kaddish hardly needs an introduction to fans of American poetry. Like Howl before it, it stands as one of Allen Ginsberg's monumental achievements. This recording, done in 1964 at Brandeis University, was part of a program that also included poets Peter Orlovsky and Gregory Corso. For those who don't know, Kaddish is a Jewish hymn of praise to God, it is recited as the daily prayer service for mourners. Ginsberg's Kaddish is his own very personal mourning of his mother, who had died in 1956
