Description

Product Description

The definitive collection of anti-establishment American poetry, from Bob Dylan and Jack Kerouac to Sapphire and Tupac Shakur

"Welcome to the Wild West of American Poetry, the Hole-In-The-Wall of Blakean vision, a two-fisted saloon of New World dreams where you''ll meet the greatest Outlaw voices from the post-war era to the present day. Here are the inventors of the Beat generation and the heroes of today''s Spoken Word movement, poets who don''t get taught in American poetry 101, yet hold the literary future in their tattooed hands." So begins The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, a primer for generational revolt and poetic expression, and an enduring document of the visionary tradition of authenticity and nonconformity in literature. From the Beat poetry of the ''50s to the spoken word of the 1990s, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry brings readers the words, visions, and extravagant lives of bohemians, beatniks, hippies, punks, and slackers. This exuberant manifesto includes lives of the poets, on-the-scene testimony, seminal underground articles never before collected, photographs of clubs and cafes, interviews, and, above all, the poems.

From Library Journal

The Beat sensibility is alive and ranting in this bulky, multigenerational anthology of work by those who follow the off-road literary paths of Whitman and Ginsberg. Id-driven, political, and sexually explicit, these poems speak in the vernacular of the street, touting oppositional art as a weapon against poverty, corporate capitalism, discrimination, and violence. The roster of poets has to be among the strangest gathered in one volume; progenitors like Kerouac, Baraka, diPrima, etc., are interleaved with youthful urban slammers and complemented by the likes of Tupac Shakur, Tom Waits, Richard Pryor, Karen Finley, Janis Joplin, Che Guevara, James Dean, and other pop icons. The spirit of the whole affair might best be summarized by Pedro Pietri''s "Telephone booth number 542": "the only way/ i know how/ to wash dishes/ is by smashing them/ against the wall!" Though this collection holds some historical and documentary interest and a few harrowing moments courtesy of Sapphire and Gerry Gomez Pearlberg, many poems are by turns obvious, self-important, tedious, and indulgent--just like Open Mic Night down at the local tavern.

Great Book...if you''re "into this sort of thing."
Reviewed in the United States on January 31, 2020
...and I kinda am. I looked through it several times at my local brick and mortar but was always too cheap to buy it. Found it used on here and took the plunge. About $6 instead of $25...that worked.

I first purchased this book second-hand from a thrift store in Phoenix, Arizona. I don’t know that I was necessarily looking for the American Bible of Outlaw Poetry. I believe it found me. At some point during my 10+ years that book disappeared-it needed to be with someone else. I purchased my second copy on Amazon and will hold onto it until it’s time to pass on. This collection harkens back to the days of cafe’s in Paris, New York, San Francisco-I can smell cigarettes burning in ashtrays while people thump their chests and pound the tiny imbalanced tables with fists to emphasize their impassioned philosophies! Poetry is not for the faint of heart and needs not be discussed quietly in distinguished spaces.

This is one hell of an anthology to gnaw on. When I crack open this "bible" I immediately feel transported into smoke-filled taverns where junkies, pimps, and rebels wax poetic in all ways un-orthodox. There are some poems in here where I do feel as if I''m shaking my fist alongside their creators, shaking it at the establishment, at order. But there are poems in here that also make me cringe at how raw they are in nature and subject matter. I would say that it''s a good anthology in many respects. I particularly enjoy reading A.D. Winans poems. Tom Waits is always welcome at my coffee table. I liked reading Jack Hircshman, Bob Flanagan. Those poems are emotional but they still make me think. I was dissapointed with Hunter S. Thompson and James Dean where emotion shoots in all directions and the landings are very unclear. Ultimately, it''s worth reading to clean your palate.

Love the beats
Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2019
This book is an excellent collection of the variety of, mostly, the Beats. Go to City Lights and pick up Ferlinghettis treasury of the Beats and you have a great collection. So many little gems, and these poems read really well to audiences - I use them often.

It''s huge. It slumbers on my night table. I bought it used and it opened to James Dean''s "Ode to a Tijuana Toilet". On the facing page was John Gilmore''s painting of Dean, and beyond that, a photo of Dean''s original typed, annotated copy of the poem, provided by Gilmore. Readers will find famous names from the worlds of music, acting, literature, and even, yes, poetry. I open it at random and find uncommon good stuff and passages I will abandon immediately. What else would one expect from an outlaw bible? It won''t bore you.

Let me tell you a story. Back in suburban high school, I discovered this book at Barnes and Noble and fell in love. Some poems in it are not my thing but some spoke to me in ways I can''t define. My best friend then got it for me for my birthday. I subsequently lost it or something happened to it in the ensuing years of young adulthood. I bought it again. LOTS AND LOTS of poems. It''s magnificent.
