Adapting the Beat Poets : Burroughs, Ginsberg, and Kerouac on Screen, Hardback Book

Adapting the Beat Poets : Burroughs, Ginsberg, and Kerouac on Screen Hardback

Part of the Film and History series

Description

William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac were three of the most significant figures of the Beat Generation, whose writings have been adapted and appropriated for graphic novels, feature-length films, and other media.

Adapting the Beat Poets looks at film versions of their writings-including Naked Lunch, Howl, and On the Road-and examines how these interpretations are linked to each other and how beat literature, which historically and artistically stakes itself on authenticity, can be significantly altered by such adaptations.
