Beat Transnationalism


John Tytell looks at the Beat Generation as a transnational entity.




Allen Ginsberg told John Tytell that he would not understand the Beat Generation without first experiencing life in Mexico, and so, while writing Naked Angels, the first book to explore the development of Beat literature, Tytell headed south to Oaxaca. In this volume, Tytell examines the importance of Mexico to the Beat Generation, while recounting – via letters from that period to his wife, Mellon – his own experiences in Oaxaca. Also included are essays on Bonnie Bremser, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Patti Smith, among others.
