Authors whose works are considered include Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and Bob Kaufman, as well as Fitz Hugh Ludlow, James S. Lee and Ken Nordine. A theme seen implicitly to be linking these authors is their common yearning for utopian harmony and mystical transcendence, a desire that drives their vocation as pilgrims to elsewhere.
