New York, NY: The Viking Press, 1992. First Edition. Hardcover. "The Portable Beat Reader" will be recognized as the definitive book on the subject, worthy of being a Viking portable." (Lawrence Ferlinghetti, back flap) "Charters' learned Beat volume is a handy compilation of historic poetic signposts and spiritual milestones for youths and scholars who've begun their studies of a progressive literary explosion that shook the walls of cities on both sides of the Iron Curtain." (Allen Ginsberg, back flap) "A deft and definitive collection. It catches the flavor of playful, serious defiance of the whole generation." (Gary Snyder, back flap) As those three testimonies from Beat figures of immense magnitude suggest, this anthology of Beat writing is second to none. Charters' enduring scholarship will continue to be mined for years. Book in very fine condition with only minor crease to bottom right corner of recto board. Dust jacket in fine condition with slight rubbing throughout. Very Fine / Fine. [Item #2676]
