520    In these critical essays Gregory Stephenson takes the 
       reader on a journey through the literature of the Beat 
       Generation: a journey encompassing that common ethos of 
       Beat literature- the passage from darkness to light, from 
       fragmented being toward wholeness, from Beat to Beatific. 
       He travels through Jack Kerouac' s Duluoz Legend, 
       following Kerouac' s quests for identity, community, and 
       spiritual knowledge. He examines Allen Ginsberg' s use of 
       transcendence in " Howl," discovers the Gnostic vision in 
       William S. Burroughs' s fiction, and studies the mythic, 
       visionary power of Lawrence Ferlinghetti' s poetry. 
       Stephenson also provides detailed examinations of the 
       writing of lesser-known Beat authors: John Clellon Holmes,
       Gregory Corso, Richard Fariñ a, and Michael McClure. He 
       explores the myth and the mystery of the literary legend 
       of Neal Cassady. The book concludes with a look at the 
       common traits of the Beat writers- their use of 
       primitivism, shamanism, myth and magic, spontaneity, and 
       improvisation, all of which led them to a new idiom of 
       consciousness and to the expansion of the parameters of 
       American literature
