ENGL 136 - Beat GenerationSemester Hours: 3
This course will introduce students to the culture of conformity of American postwar society and examine the rebellion against it by the poets and novelists of the Beat Generation, writers such as Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs. We will examine why these writers were dissatisfied during such an affluent time in America, why they chose to rebel against the dominant ideas and values, and how this rebellion shaped revolutionary new forms of writing.
