>>7627208 ugh, why? it's a very shallow movement that is less about poetry and literature and more about whiny narcissism. as a historical/cultural movement it holds some interest but it's not "literature"
and if you're taking a class anyway why do you need a separate intro. your class will probably give you a better overview than any book/recs you get here.
>>7627228 I found the book to be quite interesting. It shows how the other guys in the Beat group were mostly jerking it and were nothing more than a couple of normal intelligent people looking for some kicks, and many times falling into pretentiousness (Ginsberg trying to read a poem and everyone shitting on him)
