Overview of Postbeat Poets Chronology

Simply, “Postbeat” indicates a constellation of poets after Beat Generation works began to mainline early U.S. mass media culture, late 1950s, early 1960s.Postbeat may indicate Beat influence––direct or otherwise. Postbeat may also suggest a kind of poetics that furthers the spectrum of multicultural advances and/or social justice changes since the Beat Generation. Where oppression and censorship reign, Postbeat may portend a complex set of underground global ars poetica grassroot agendas for such advancement and/or social justice. The term also suggests distinct historical and generational scenarios impacted by technologies unknown to the Beat Generation. In some circles, Postbeat carries forward the idea of spoken word improvisized jazz forms developed by Jack Kerouac. In other spheres, Postbeat may imply a living “heart son and heart daughter” of Allen Ginsberg based upon documented evidence contained in the public record. Some music journalists have given the tag of “Postbeat” to popular American cultural singer/poets such as Bob Dylan and Patti Smith. Postbeat provides an alternative to the “Postmodern” movement. More information on Postbeat Poets can be found at the Museum of American Poetics Postbeat Poets Activist Scholarship Project.


Included in this Postbeat Poets Chronology: 1962-2010, are books of poetry, poetics, cultural prose, works by the authors as editors, translators, publishers, directors & producers, as well as some audio/visual recordings & founding of magazine, presses, clubs, literary centers, and/or schools.
