"From the links between Jack Kerouac’s writing and Charlie Parker’s jazz improvisation, to the collaborations between Allen Ginsberg and the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan and the Clash, this volume presents an excursus on the relationship between the authors of the Beat Generation and the music that influenced them. The text also analyzes the role of the folk revival and psychedelic culture of the 1960s in anti-war demonstrations and civil rights movements, as well as William Burroughs’s linguistic influences on rock'n'roll, up to Patti Smith and U2.""
