Archive Series: Locus #1

Locus was a shorter-lived, less formal blog project. My emphasis was more on development than the finished essays of STL (The STL archives series will continue anon).

Title: Beats
n.d., 2005-6

I'd take this class.

Possible Texts:
Brossard, Who Walk in Darkness
Dylan, Chronicles (ch 1-2: great Greenwich Village context)
Rexroth, poems
Ginsburg, Howl
Kerouac, On the Road and Dharma Bums
Cortazar, Hopscotch

Tactics:
Recreate geographies of beat-dom. Foci: Greenwich Village (Brossard, Dylan provides excellent background), SF (City Lights reading), and an unexpected location like Dallas or Denver.
