A selection of the most exemplary poetry and prose of the Beat writers and writers influenced by the Beat Generation, and visits to high-points "on the Beaten path," such as Kerouac's hometown, and Tangiers, where William S. Burroughs wrote portions of Naked Lunch. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“The Beats, that is, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Diane di Prima, and Michael McClure, to name a core group, are finally being accorded the attention they deserve; they constituted, after all, a major, lastingly influential arts movement. . . . The fact that Waldman’s book is of such high quality is no surprise; a poet herself, she cofounded the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics in Boulder, Colorado.”—Booklist

Anyway, this anthology devotes time to writers other than the big three of the Beats. Selections from Joanne Kyger, John Wieners, Diane Di Prima, and Lenore Kandel make this anthology well-worth its price despite its flaws.
