Gregory Corso: Beat Maverick

Coventry, England: The Beat Scene Press, 2015. First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Numbered Limited Edition (#49/125). Beat Scene Press Pocket Book No. 49 holds an insightful critical retrospective on the life & work of original Beat poet Gregory Corso. Poet & Essayist Jim Burns traces Corso's evolution using biographical fact and demystifies the mythos surrounding Corso's arrival into the original Beat Movement (as represented by Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, & William S. Burroughs), factually assembling a cohesive chronology. Burns uses this framework, echoing Lawrence Ferlinghetti's maxim "read between the lives, not between the lines," to create critical commentary that enriches Corso's potency & relevance while illuminating the character of such an uncompromising figure, "the Shelley of the Beat Generation." (Ring) Chapbook in very fine condition with only slightest rubbing to fine-edge of rear wrapper. Very Fine. [Item #2648]
