Baro, Gene - Beat Poets

London, Vista Books, 1961, 1ste druk. 18,4 x 11,4 x 0,5 cm., Paperback. 48 pages. No images. Conditie: Good, Vergeeld maar verder in goede staat.. Jack Kerouac coined the phrase, "The Beat Generation". Later his friend John Clellon Holmes, the American novelist, defined and popularised the term in the pages of The New York Times Magazine. He wrote: The origins of the word 'beat' are obscure, but the meaning is all too clear to most Americans. More then mere weariness, it implies the feeling of having been used, of being raw. It involves a sort of nakedness of mind, and ultimately, of soul; a feeling of being reduced to the bedrock of consciousness. In short, it means being undramatically pushed up against the wall of oneself. A man is beat whenever he goes for broke and wagers the sum of his resources on a single number..
