Kraszewski's cycle Beast explores the familar, yet now vanished culture of the ethnic enclaves of the 1960s Northeast. The haunting, incantatory rhythms of poems such as "Loveland Pass" and "Here is no god but Mammon," are redolent of Kerouac's Book of Sketches and Big Sur at their hypnotic best. Charles S. Kraszewski is 2013 laureate of the Union of Polish Writers Abroad (London).
