Denver and the Beats
Certain cities and certain writers are linked in the
minds of readers: Oxford, Mississippi means just one
man: William Faulkner. Paris in the Twenties signifies
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Gertrude Stein.
Similarly, Chicago belongs to Carl Sandburg, Nelson
Algren and Saul Bellow. Say the word "Harlem"
and one thinks about Zora Neale Hurston and Langston
Hughes. For Denverites who have been swept up at some
point in their reading lives by the works of Jack
Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, it's a well known and
beloved fact - though this will be news to most Coloradans
and most Americans - that Denver possesses a fascinating
slice of the Beat Generation's history, and it all
comes down to one man and one summer: Neal Cassady
and the summer of 1947.
Beat Poetry Driving Tour
Behold, the misfits and infidels of Denver's vivid
literary history. They range from fast-burning, baby-faced
geniuses who stayed for a year or two, to slow-writing
Western sages who wrote their hearts out in the town
they inhabited for the whole of their lives.
Despite their wide-ranging minds and dispositions,
they each - sometimes in spite of themselves - possessed
a touching, furious affection for their Denver years.
More charming still is that Denver tended to love
them back, even if Colorado was only a brief stop
on the way to their pronounced, subsequent fame.
