Special Topics: The Beats and Their Discontents

ENGL 306
Spring 2018 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.
