Abstract:But, even given that many changes have occurred between Emerson's era and the Beat Generation that alter the conditions of self-location, such changes nevertheless do not fundamentally alter the process by which that self-location is achieved. By becoming conscious of the surrounding landscape (however that term is defined) the poet makes a judgment about his or her place in the universe---and not coincidentally determines what aspects of life give meaning to human existence.
