Annotation

Contributors focus on key concerns of Beat writing, including race, gender, sexuality, religion, and transnational curculation.

Full Description

For too long, criticism of the Beat Generation has focused on the biographical exploits of Kerouac, Ginsberg, and Burroughs. This Companion changes that by placing the Beats in their historical, cultural, and literary contexts. Contributors focus on key concerns of Beat writing, including race, gender, sexuality, religion, and transnational circulation.
