2. The Beat Generation
Anne Waldman in conversation with Andrew Schelling
The Beat Generation, which rose to prominence in America in the post-war era, inspired a culture of nonconformity and social revolution. The radical poets, including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, embodied personal freedom and nonconformity. Their fellow poet, the iconic Anne Waldman, in conversation with poet and translator Andrew Schelling, reads, resurrects, deconstructs, and declaims poetry and inspirations from The Beat Generation.
