Okay, we all know that poetry is incredibly subjective and thus victim to our own personal emotions, but I still have to ask -- with the passing of a Beat poet yesterday -- what do you all think of the Beat poets?
Sorry, but who died? I loved reading all of Kerouaks (sp?) books. Richard Brautigan was a little past the beat times, but the sentiment is still there.
I am a big fan of the beat poets, I didn't hear who died either.
IMO, beat poets were highly under rated. They broke the mold of traditional formal poetry, something which is difficult to do in any genre of art. Gaining acceptance in the main stream came relatively quickly because of the general overall cultural turn of the times.
Beat poets challenged the social and literary norms of the day. When Ginsberg's "Howl and Other Poems" was first published the publisher was brought to trial on obscenity charges. They pushed the lines in a number of areas as did the whole of the beat generation in the late 40's and early 50's.
