Dharma Bums

Dharma Bums

Most of the posts about Gary Snyder and his work were reworked lectures that Keith Kumasen Abbott delivered to his classes on American writers of the Pacific Northwest at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics in Boulder, Colorado. Abbott also zeroed in on Jack Kerouac’s spontaneous and masterful haiku in the two posts included below. Pat Nolan’s Quantum of Kerouac provides a personal overview of Kerouac’s importance to the post-war generation.
