Thunder's Mouth Press 1999 1560252278 / 9781560252276 Paperback Very Good
From the Beat poetry of the '50s to the spoken word of today, The Outlaw Bi ble of American Poetry brings readers the words, visions, and extravagant l ives of bohemians, beatniks, hippies, punks, and slackers. Like Donald Alle n's epochal New American Poetry, The Outlaw Bible will serve as a primer fo r generational revolt and poetic expression, and is an enduring document of the visionary tradition of authenticity and nonconformity in literature. T his exuberant manifesto includes lives of the poets, on-the-scene testimony , seminal underground articles never before collected, photographs of clubs and cafes, interviews, and, above all, the poems.
