abstract

Building on recent transnational Beat Generation scholarship and focusing on poetry, this essay aims to expand the geographical scope of Beat culture by including Italy. It does so considering a number of questions, such as what ties Beat poets had with Italy and Italian culture; how and when their texts migrated to Italy and with what effects on the receiving culture, including publishers, journalists, general readers and poets. It investigates the ramifications of Beat poetry as a transatlantic flux between the United States and Italy during roughly two and a half decades (1956-1980), re-discovering an otherwise neglected Italian American writer, and assessing whether the Beats’ aesthetics did impact Italian culture glocally.
