The Beat Page
Rexroth, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti... coffee shops, jazz clubs and cabarets. The Beat movement that originated in the 1950's is still alive today.

     Noted by such sources as Smithsonian, PBS, and required reading by hundreds of University EN-Lit courses, The Beat Page offers original articles, selected writings, an expansive photo history, and is an effective introduction to a generation of free thinkers that defined a new direction in American culture and literature - The Beat Generation.
