A Different Beat: Early Work by Women of the Beat Generation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The timing is perfect. Women seemed missing from official collections of Beat writing. The women I heard in Greenwich Village seemed rebels — daring, mysterious, strong, able with magical images to say what I hadn't heard women say ... Present tense writing, by young women writing passionately from within, who insist women 'trust yourself' and refuse to be stereotyped, emerging aware, conscious and engaged". — Lyn Lifshin

Synopsis:

This anthology gathers the Beat-period writings of 26 women who were often overshadowed by their male contemporaries, but whose art both shaped the Beat aesthetic and laid the cornerstone for the outlaw female artists of today. Among the featured writers are Jan Kerouac, Joan Haverty Kerouac, Eileen Kaufman, Diane Di Prima, Ruth Weiss, and many others.
