The transnational beat generation( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection maps the Beat Generation movement globally, exploring American Beat writers alongside parallel movements in other countries that shared a critique of global capitalism and a sense of the permeability of national and cultural boundaries. Ranging from the immediate post-World War II period and continuing into the 1990s, the essays illustrate Beat participation in the global circulation of a poetics of dissent that both affirms and transforms nation/state identities"--
A tawdry place of salvation : the art of Jane Bowles( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first critical study of the work of Jane Bowles, Jennie Skerl presents eleven essays, which, she explains, "pay attention to the works, not the biography or the myth, in order to understand and appreciate [Bowles's] brilliant oeuvre." Through these essays - which deal with Bowles's published as well as her unpublished work - Skerl seeks to generate serious critical attention to an important but neglected female experimental writer of the mid-twentieth century and to celebrate her originality, power, and craft. Based in disciplines that range from feminist criticism to Middle Eastern studies, from queer theory to the Beat Generation, and from postmodernism to Victorianism, the essayists naturally approach Bowles's fiction and drama from a wide variety of critical perspectives. All of these essays are unpublished and written for this volume
