Summary
"In 1977, twenty years after the publication of his landmark poem "Howl" and Jack Kerouac's On the Road, Allen Ginsberg decided it was time to teach a course on the literary history of the Beat Generation. Through this course, which he taught first at the Narope Institute in Colorado, and later at Brooklyn College, Ginsberg saw an opportunity to present a full history of Beat literature and to record his own stories and memories, ones that might otherwise be lost to history. the result was a deeply intimate, wonderfully digressive, but revelatory set of lectures, which form the basis of this book. Compiled and edited by renowned Beat scholar Bill Morgan, and with an introduction by Anne Waldeman, The Best Minds of My Generation provides the lectures in a curated form, revealing the Beats as Ginsberg knew them: friends, confidantes, literary mentors, and fellow revolutionaries."--Jacket flap
