Women Of The Beat Generation reverberates with the howls, raps, roars, and visions of over forty women writers, artists, and muses from one of the most fascinating eras of American history. With riveting biographies, over 50 rare photos, and original writings, Women Of The Beat Generation is an anthology of the life and work of some magnificently creative and rebellious women who broke from tradition during the rigidly conformist fifties. Women Of The Beat Generation reflects a brilliant time of rebellion and the intellectual groundwork of what would one day become the modern feminist movement. There is a literature by, about, and for women that is as unique as any other genre. Women of the Beat Generation captures and showcases just such a segment of literary vigor and excellence.Knight, Brenda is the author of 'Women of the Beat Generation The Writers, Artists and Muses at the Heart of a Revolution', published 1998 under ISBN 9781573241380 and ISBN 1573241385.
