The birth of the beat generation : visionaries, rebels, and hipsters, 1944-1960 by Steven Watson( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and German and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concisely told and full of fascinating detail, The Birth of the Beat Generation chronicles the life and times of the maverick poets and novelists William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac, as well as the San Francisco group, which included Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Gary Snyder. It also evokes the figures surrounding them, including Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, Herbert Huncke, and Peter Orlovsky. This is the first book to link the Beats to one another, explaining how they became a group and tracing the connections between Beat lives and such Beat literature as Kerouac's On the Road, Ginsberg's Howl and Other Poems, and Burroughs' Naked Lunch. Accompanying the text are maps, more than one hundred photographs, two sociograms, quotations from Beat works and conversation, chronologies, and a vast lexicon of the slang that defines the nuances and complexities of the Beat world and mind
The Harlem renaissance : hub of African-American culture, 1920-1930 by Steven Watson( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was W.E.B. DuBois who paved the way with his essays and his magazine The Crisis, but the Harlem Renaissance was mostly a literary and intellectual movement whose best known figures include Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Claude McKay, and Jean Toomer. Their work ranged from sonnets to modernist verse to jazz aesthetics and folklore, and their mission was race propaganda and pure art. Adding to their visibility were famous jazz musicians, producers of all-black revues, and bootleggers. Now available in paperback, this richly-illustrated book contains more than 70 black-and-white photographs and drawings. Steven Watson clearly traces the rise and flowering of this movement, evoking its main figures as well as setting the scene--describing Harlem from the Cotton Club to its literary salons, from its white patrons like Carl van Vechten to its most famous entertainers such as Duke Ellington, Josephine Baker, Ethel Waters, Alberta Hunter, Fats Waller, Bessie Smith, and Louis Armstrong, among many others. He depicts the social life of working-class speakeasies, rent parties, gay and lesbian nightlife, as well as the celebrated parties at the twin limestone houses owned by hostess A'Lelia Walker. This is an important history of one of America's most influential cultural phenomenons
Strange bedfellows : the first American avant-garde by Steven Watson( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepare for saints : Gertrude Stein, Virgil Thomson, and the mainstreaming of American modernism by Steven Watson( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the oddest and most influential collaboration in the history of American modernism was hatched in 1926, when Virgil Thomson knocked on Gertrude Stein's door in Paris. Eight years later, their opera Four Saints in Three Acts became a sensation--the longest-running opera in Broadway history to date and the most widely reported cultural event of its time. Saints was proclaimed the birth of a new art form, a cellophane fantasy, "cubism on stage." It swept the public imagination and defied every convention of what an opera should be. Moving to Broadway, Four Saints was the first popular modernist production. It brought modernism, with all its flamboyant outrage against convention, into the mainstream. This is the story of how that opera came to be. The elaborately intertwined lives of the collaborators provide a window onto the pioneering generation that defined modern taste in America in the 1920s and 1930s.--From publisher description
