Pub. Date:
A timeline brackets the Beat Generation as beginning with a 1944 meeting between Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Herbert Huncke, and ending with Ginsberg's death in 1997. Dittman (humanities and social sciences, Butler County Community College), author of Jack Kerouac: A Biography (2004), reflects on what defines literary movements and the Beats' legacy. He then presents biographies, synopses of, and discussion questions on the works of key figures: John Clellon Holmes (Go); Kerouac (On the Road, The Dharma Bumns; Ginsberg (Howl and Other Poems); Burroughs (Naked Lunch); Neal Cassidy (The First Third); and "new journalist" Tom Wolfe (The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test).
