Definition
U.S. poet of the Beat generation (1926-1997)
  • There Kerouac joined the poet Allen Ginsberg and others in the Beat Movement, in alcohol-and-drug-fueled protest against the conformity and crass consumerism of 1950s America, which made them feel beaten, longing for the beatitude, or blessedness, of the natural world.
