                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: "It isn't enough for your heart to break because 
everybody's heart is broken now."

HINT: (1926-1997) Was an American Beat poet born in Newark, 
New Jersey. He is best known for Howl (1956).


                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

Poet and novelist Jack Kerouac coined the term "Beat" in 
the late 1940s, but was not until the 1950s that it would 
become a slang term symbolizing a literary movement by 
writers such as Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William 
Burroughs. The "Beat" movement rejected the social 
constraints of the 1950s and reflected a growing 
disillusionment with the "establishment" and traditional 
American values.


Ben Jonson was named the first poet laureate of England in 
1616. The title, however, did not become an official royal 
office until 1668, when John Dryden assumed the honored 
post. Since that time, the office has been awarded for 
life. The poet laureate is responsible for composing poems 
for court and national occasions.


Maxwell Anderson, one of the most important American 
playwrights of the early 20th century, wrote his plays in 
verse in an attempt to return tragic poetry to the American 
stage. He said that he was tired of "plays in prose that 
never lifted from the ground."
