    If we all liked the same thing of anything, this world would be a damn boring place! "Kaddish" had a better critical reception than "Howl" did; I guess critics decided to cut him a little slack because the work was about the mental illness of his mother & the horrors of his childhood dealing with it plus the actual poem itself being incredibly powerful.
