The Last Words of Dutch Schultz. William S Burroughs.
hour-glass-sanatorium said: Could you recommend any collections that gather poetry of various Beat poets? If there are any. Thank you in advance.
I would recommend The Beat Book or The Portable Beat Reader. They’re edited by Anne Waldman and Ann Charters respectively, so definitely good. There’s also Women of the Beat Generation which has some poetry samples + profiles of female Beats. Also, the absolutely amazing Outlaw Bible of American Poetry has several Beats featured in it, among others. One of my favourite books.
