Description

This is a presentation I created and delivered this week to a group of visiting Italian students at Burlingame High School. The full presentation featured a rich array of video and sound which, I believe, is not available in this format.

The Lost Generation “By a ‘generation’ I mean that reaction against the fathers which seems to occur about three times a century. It is distinguished by a set of ideas inherited in modified form from the madmen and outlaws of the generation before; if it is a real generation it has its own leaders and spokesmen.”! !! –– F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Beat Generation ““The Beat Generation was a generation of crazy, illuminated hipsters suddenly rising and roaming America, serious, bumming and hitchhiking everywhere, ragged, beatific, beautiful in an ugly graceful new way--a vision gleaned from the way we had heard the word 'beat' spoken on streetcorners on Times Square and in the Village, in other cities in the downtown city night of postwar America--beat, meaning down and out but full of intense conviction--We'd even heard old 1910 Daddy Hipsters of the streets speak the word that way, with a melancholy sneer--It meant characters of a special spirituality who didn't gang up but were solitary Bartlebies staring out the dead wall window of our civilization--the subterraneans heroes who'd finally turned from the 'freedom' machine of the West and were taking drugs, digging bop, having flashes of insight, experiencing the 'derangement of the senses,' talking strange, being poor and glad, prophesying a new style for American culture, a new style (we thought).”! !! –– Jack Kerouac
