Special Topics: The Beats and Their Discontents

ENGL 306
Spring 2017 not offered
Certificates: Writing
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

Without a doubt, three important, foundational works of the Beat movement threaten to stand in for all others. In this class we will do time with the better known HOWL and ON THE ROAD and NAKED LUNCH, but we will also invest in more contemporary memories and the continuing practices of those days of post-World War II America, when "a group of friends worked together on poetry, prose, and cultural consciousness" (Ginsberg). We will work likewise, in a variety of forms, assessing their moment and writing out our own.
