âAt Naropa Universityâs Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, there has long been an illuminating, dynamic, ongoing exchange of ideas about the history and legacy of the Beat Generationâan exchange fortunately that has been carefully archived and preserved. This valuable anthology does not further embalm the âlegendâ of the Beats. Instead it allows its readers to hear authentic voices âAllen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, John Clellon Holmes, Diane di Prima, Philip Whalen, etc.âas well as introducing the thoughtful and responsible work of leading Beat scholars.ââJoyce Johnson
Â Amassed from the riches of the Naropa University audio archives, this collection offers an exciting new look at the Beatsâwhose influence lives on in the art and politics of our time. In this often spontaneous, conversational book, readers are introduced to the hard truths behind being a Beat woman, the haunting accuracy of William Burroughsâs world-view, the passion and energy of Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman, Jack Kerouacâs unexpected musicality, Diane DiPrimaâs foray into small press publishing, Michael McClureâs account of the famous first reading of âHowl,â and, most of all, the inspirations behind Americaâs most provocative and prescient thinkers.
