Later, female poets emerged who claimed to be strongly influenced by the Beats, including Janine Pommy Vega in the s, Patti Smith in the s, and Hedwig Gorski in the s. Although African Americans were not widely represented in the Beat Generation, the presence of some black writers in this movement did contribute to the movement's progression.
While many of the Beats briefly discusses issues of race and sexuality, they spoke from their own perspectives—most being white. However, black people added a counterbalance to this; their work supplied readers with alternative views of occurrences in the world. In particular, the African American Beat writers, Robert "Bob" Kaufman and LeRoi Jones Amiri Barakashared through their writings as well as their daily lives active pursuit of the change they wrote about.
Poet Bob Kaufman wrote about a number of his experiences. Following his time in the military, he had trouble with police officers and the criminal justice system. Like many of the Beats, Kaufman was also a fan of Jazz and incorporated it into his work to describe relationships with others. That is, until the assassination of the Civil Rights leader, Malcolm X. During this time, LeRoi Jones branched off from the other Beat writers, including his wife, to find his identity among the African American and Islamic communities.
One of the key beliefs and practices of the Beat Generation was free love and sexual liberation,  which strayed from the Christian ideals of American culture at the time. However, the first novel does show Cassady as frankly promiscuous. Kerouac's novels feature an interracial love affair The Subterraneansand group sex The Dharma Bums. The relationships among men in Kerouac's novels are predominately homosocial. The original members of the Beat Generation used a number of different drugs, including alcohol, marijuanabenzedrinemorphineand later psychedelic drugs such as peyoteAyahuascaand LSD.
Their drug use was broadly inspired by intellectual interest, and many Beat writers thought that their drug experiences enhanced The Beat Down - Javi Energy - The Album (File), insight, or productivity. Ginsberg mentions Shelley's poem Adonais at the beginning of his poem Kaddishand cites it as a major influence on the composition of one of his most important poems.
Ginsberg's main Romantic influence was William Blake and studied him throughout his life. Blake was the subject of Ginsberg's self-defining auditory hallucination and revelation in Writers of the Beat Generation were heavily influenced by Jazz artists like Billie Holiday and the stories told through Jazz music. They used their pieces to discuss feelings, people, and objects they associate with Jazz music, as well as life experiences that reminded them of this style of music.
Kaufman's pieces listed above "were intended to be freely improvisational when read with Jazz accompaniment" Charters He and other writers found inspiration in this genre and allowed it to help fuel the Beat movement. Edgar Allan Poe was occasionally acknowledged, and Ginsberg saw Emily Dickinson as having an influence on Beat poetry.
In many ways, Surrealism was still considered a vital movement in the s. Philip Lamantia introduced Surrealist poetry to the original Beats. As the legend goes, when meeting French Surrealist Marcel DuchampGinsberg kissed his shoe and Corso cut off his tie.
Gertrude Stein was the subject of a book-length study by Lew Welch. Gary Snyder defined wild as "whose order has grown from within and is maintained by the force of consensus and custom rather than explicit The Beat Down - Javi Energy - The Album (File). Snyder attributed wild to Buddhism and Daoismthe interests of some Beats.
While many authors claim to be directly influenced by the Beats, the Beat Generation phenomenon itself has had an influence on American culture leading more broadly to the hippie movements of the s.
InGinsberg published a summary of "the essential effects" of the Beat Generation: . This suggested that beatniks were 1 "far out of the mainstream of society" and 2 "possibly pro-Communist.
An early example of the "beatnik stereotype" occurred in Vesuvio's a bar in North BeachSan Francisco which employed the artist Wally Hedrick to sit in the window dressed in full beard, turtleneck, and sandals, creating improvisational drawings and paintings. By tourists who came to San Francisco could take bus tours to view the North Beach Beat scene, prophetically anticipating similar tours of the Haight-Ashbury district ten years later.
While some of the original Beats embraced the beatniks, or at least found the parodies humorous Ginsberg, for example, appreciated the parody in the comic strip Pogo  others criticized the beatniks as inauthentic poseurs. Jack Kerouac feared that the spiritual aspect of his message had been lost and that many were using the Beat Generation as an excuse to be senselessly wild.
During the s, aspects of the Beat movement metamorphosed into the counterculture of the saccompanied by a shift in terminology from " beatnik " to " hippie ". Notably, however, Jack Kerouac broke with Ginsberg and criticized the s politically radical protest movements as an excuse to be "spiteful". There were stylistic differences between beatniks and hippies—somber colors, dark sunglasses, and goatees gave way to colorful psychedelic clothing and long hair.
The Beats were known for "playing it cool" keeping a low profile. Beyond style, there were changes in substance: The Beats tended to be essentially apolitical, but the hippies became actively engaged with the civil rights movement and the anti-war movement. Among the emerging novelists of the s and s, a few were closely connected with Beat writers, most notably Ken Kesey One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. William S. Burroughs is considered a forefather of postmodern literature ; he also inspired the cyberpunk genre.
As there was focus on live performance among the Beats, many Slam poets have claimed to be influenced by the Beats. The Postbeat Poets are direct descendants of the Beat Generation. Their association with or tutelage under Ginsberg at The Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics  and later at Brooklyn College stressed the social-activist legacy of the Beats and created its own body of literature. Peters, Jr. The Beats had a pervasive influence on rock and roll and popular music, including the BeatlesBob Dylan and Jim Morrison.

Musician Mark Sandmanwho was the bass guitarist, lead vocalist and a former member of the alternative jazz rock band Morphinewas interested in the Beat Generation and wrote a song called "Kerouac" as a tribute to Jack Kerouac and his personal philosophy and way of life. There was a resurgence of interest in the beats among bands in the s. Bono of U2 cites Burroughs as a major influence,   and Burroughs appeared briefly in a U2 video in Laurie Anderson featured Burroughs on her album Mister Heartbreak and in her concert film, Home of the Brave.
The Beat Generation was met with scrutiny and assigned many stereotypes. Several magazines, including Life and Playboydepicted members of the Beat Generation as nihilists and as unintellectual. This criticism was largely due to the ideological differences between American culture at the time and the Beat Generation, including their Buddhist -inspired beliefs.
Norman Podhoretza student at Columbia with Kerouac and Ginsberg, later became a critic of the Beats. Podhoretz asserted that there was a link between the Beats and criminal delinquents. Ginsberg responded in a interview with The Village Voice specifically addressing the charge that the Beats destroyed "the distinction between life and literature".
In the interview, he stated that "the bit about anti-intellectualism is a piece of vanity, we had the same education, The Beat Down - Javi Energy - The Album (File) to the same school, you know there are 'Intellectuals' and there are intellectuals. Podhoretz is just out of touch with twentieth-century literature, he's writing for the eighteenth-century mind. We have a personal literature now— ProustWolfeFaulknerJoyce. In a interview,  Gary Snyder comments on the subject of "casualties" of the Beat Generation: .
Kerouac was a casualty too. And there were many other casualties that most people have never heard of, but were genuine casualties. Just as, in the 60s, when Allen The Beat Down - Javi Energy - The Album (File) I for a period there were almost publicly recommending people to take acid.
