Aspects Of The Beat Generation Aesthetic

. Read all of the resources about the Beat Generation.

2. Conduct your own research about the beat writers. There are plenty of articles and documentaries about this interesting group of artists.

3. Use the articles provided, my slides, and your own research about the beats to create a list of 7-10 aspects of the beat values, ideas, and aesthetic. Provide your source for each item.

4. Point out one example of how Jitterbug Perfume could be considered a “beat” novel. Provide a specific page and/or quotation to demonstrate your point.

In order to understand Jitterbug Perfume, it’s important to understand the cultural and literary contexts that influence it.

But not everyone bought into “square” values. Some artists and writers reacted against the commercial, materialistic, and conformist mainstream. In the 1950s this group of artists coalesced as “the beat generation”.
