Kurzbeschreibung

3. August 2000 Penguin Modern Classics
A timeless travelogue from the leading light of the Beat Generation, Jack Kerouac's Lonesome Traveller is a jubilant celebration of human discovery, published in Penguin Modern Classics. As he roams the US, Mexico, Morocco, Paris and London, Kerouac records, in prose of pure poetry, life on the road. Standing on the engine of a train as it rushes past fields of prickly cactus; witnessing his first bullfight in Mexico while high on opium; catching up with the beat nightlife in New York; burying himself in the snow-capped mountains of north-west America; meditating on a sunlit roof in Tangiers; or falling in love with Montmartre and the huge white basilica of Sacré-Coeur - Kerouac reveals both the endless diversity of human life and his own high-spirited philosophy of self-fulfilment. Jack Kerouac (1922-69) was an American novelist, poet, artist and part of the Beat Generation. His first published novel, The Town and the City, appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, published in 1957, that made Kerouac famous. Publication of his many other books followed, among them The Subterraneans, Big Sur, and The Dharma Bums. Kerouac died in Florida at the age of forty-seven. If you enjoyed Lonesome Traveller, you might like Kerouac's The Dharma Bums, also available in Penguin Classics. 'Piquant writing, the best part of its flavour being ... the hunt for the big experience, a touch of Hemingway and Whitman'Guardian 'Full of startling and beautiful things ... one sees, hears and feels'Sunday Times

Synopsis

As he roams the US, Mexico, Morocco, Paris and London, Kerouac records life on the road in prose of pure poetry. Standing on the engine of a train as it rushes past fields of prickly cactus; witnessing his first bullfight in Mexico while high on opium; meditating on a sunlit roof in Tangiers or falling in love with Montmartre - Kerouac reveals both the endless diversity of human life and his own particular philosophy of self-fulfillment.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts. His most famous novels are On the Road, The Subterraneans and The Dharma Bums. His first more orthodox published novel was The Town and the City. Jack Kerouac, who described himself as a 'strange solitary crazy Catholic mystic,' was working on his longest novel, a surrealistic study of the last ten years of his life when he died in 1969, aged forty-seven. Other works by Jack Kerouac include Big Sur, Desolation Angels, Lonesome Traveler, Visions of Gerard, Tristessa, and a book of poetry called Mexico City Blues. On the Road: The Original Scroll, the full uncensored transcription of the original manuscript of On the Road, is published by Penguin Modern Classics.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A tale of 2 halves 21. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
i have just finished the book for the second time managing to hold together the now loose leafed pages of my 30 year old copy while trying to read most of the book outdoors.it just intrigues me that this book can be so devoid of true literal gems right through his railroad and seamen days as though a real working life just shuts out his natural reaction to his waking dream that he finds himself in. However after a fun but claustrophobic period back in his native and tireless New York the section of his isolation in the mountain shack really soars and this is where the beauty of his style, with references to the void and his own belief that he has the answers to its formeless form. You feel the strength of his journey and the honesty of his emotion and just know he is free enough to write at his best now.A wonderful book for dreamers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great Kerouac Sampler 18. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Though it has been a while since I have read this book, I found it distressing that there were no reviews of it in this area.
I know very many of you love Kerouac's works and styles, so I hope that this book will be given it's due attention. Its contents are five short stories or sketches that move around the central theme of travel. A sketch about the "railroad earth" written in spontaneous style is quite riveting, and here you will have a chance to read what seems to be an early sketch of the fire tower section from "Dharma Bums".
I hope these suggestions will have you picking up a copy of this wonderful book

3.0 von 5 Sternen Spontaneous prose, spontaneous living 17. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Jack's not for everyone but reading Lonesome Traveler I was teleported right into his shoes-- if you're familiar with Kerouac you know this is his style. His "I" is the one you're with but this "I" is really experiencing every moment-- the minor details of being a train brakeman for instance-- doesn't sound glamorous but it breathes life. It's a bit claustrophobic and frusturasting with his page long sentences but if you forget all the rules of writing and literature you'll surf through a day with him and it's real even if his stories aren't.

5.0 von 5 Sternen wow good book, good good book 25. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This was the first Kerouac book I red and enjoyed it very much. After this I read the On the road thing which I was actually disappointed with. I guess I expected on the road to be a little more interesting and a real monumental read as everyone in a coffee shops rant. But no eye opening life style changes with that bore. I'd recommend lonesome for members of the short attentioned spaned and digitaly enhanced generation of the TV Babies. let the hippies and beats have on the road.
