These men and other artists, associated through mutual friendships, were looking for new ways and means to express themselves and their ideals.

Members of this group included writers Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs and poet Allen Ginsberg. essentially forming the Trinity of the Beats, and influencing the works of others during that era, including the "hippie" movement of the '60s.
