Abstract:

William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac were three of the most significant figures of the Beat Generation, whose writings have been adapted and appropriated for graphic novels, feature-length films, and other media. Adapting the Beat Poets looks at film versions of their writings-including Naked Lunch, Howl, and On the Road-and examines how these interpretations are linked to each other and how beat literature, which historically and artistically stakes itself on authenticity, can be significantly altered by such adaptations.
