Victoria Shelton, April 25, 2013 (view all comments by Victoria Shelton)
Gregory Corso is, in my opinion, the best Beat poet. I'm often disappointed that Kerouac gets all the fame because Corso simply runs circles around him. If you have an inkling of a desire to read some Beat poetry, start with Corso (be warned though! it might make everything else seem lackluster!)
