This exhibition reconsiders postwar literature and the ways it mirrored, predicted, and remade the culture around it, with special focus on the influential group known as “the Beats.” Pulling from the Rose Library’s rich literary collections, especially the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library, the show rediscovers a number of fascinating countercultural writers and is the first major consideration of the Beats in the U.S. in nearly a decade. Rare artifacts, including the recently acquired and long-lost "Joan Anderson" letter that influenced Jack Kerouac's "On the Road," and interactive elements add to the immersive experience.
