Carla, I've found Merriam-Webster's definition of "beatnik". As I recall, the word became popular after "Sputnik" appeared in our skies. 1957? The definition below mirrors my recollections of those times. I was just a kid, but beatniks were stereotyped as wearing berets (nobody else wore them), odd clothing, dark glasses (possibly because their wearers used heroin), strange philosophies, etc. The poetry that I heard (yes, lots of beatnik poetry was recited in coffee houses) was strange too, making odd comparisions between this and that.
You may have found the solutionl: why bother to try to translate it at all?
