Kerouac, Ginsberg, Bukowski And More In This 18-Hour Playlist Of Readings By Beat Poets

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness,
starving hysterical naked, looking for 18-hours of nothing but beat poets.

who passed through sites with radiant cool eyes
hallucinating Tidal and Apple Music-light tragedy among the
streamers of music

with the echoes of the soul, rocking and rolling in the
midnight solitude-bench dolmen-realms of love, dream of life and trial services for 3 months, all
you can stream, with ads here and there.

(Apologies to Allen Gisnberg)

Beat poetry evolved during the 1940s in both New York City and on the west coast, although San Francisco became the heart of the movement in the early 1950s. The end of World War II left poets like Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gregory Corso questioning mainstream politics and culture.

These 249 tracks include the aforementioned Ginsberg and Corso, and also William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Gregory Peter Orlovsky and Charles Bukowski.
