Summary:
"So many biographical works exist on the Beat Generation, which are of course important, but scholars tend to neglect the most fascinating aspects of their literary texts. "The Green Ghost" seeks to steer the study of Burroughs and the beats into a new direction entirely by viewing their work through the cultural prism of green cultural studies"-- Provided by publisher.
