Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

On The Road, the most famous of Jack Kerouac's works, is not only the soul of the Beat movement and literature, but one of the most important novels of the century. Like nearly all of Kerouac's writing, On The Road is thinly fictionalised autobiography, filled with a cast made of Kerouac's real life friends, lovers and fellow travellers. Narrated by Sal Paradise, one of Kerouac's alter-egos, this cross-country bohemian odyssey not only influenced writing in the years since its 1957 publication but penetrated into the deepest levels of American thought and culture. --Acton Lane

Pressestimmen

"Life is great, and few can put the zest and wonder and sadness and humor of it on paper more interestingly than Kerouac." --San Francisco Chronicle

Format: Taschenbuch
My rating of this book is based on the quality of the writing. If I were to rate the book instead for the appropriateness of what is described, I would rate it as a "zero." Before going further, let me mention that this book describes more immorality, lack of consideration, and disgusting behavior than you will read in five usual novels. If such things upset you, this book will be a poor choice for you to read.

This autobiographical novel is a paean to the hunger and optimism of youth. Everyone you meet in the book is convinced that something much better lies in the next town, in the next relationship, or in the next hit of "tea." The irony of this is nicely explored through the character of Dean Moriarty (Kerouac's friend, Neil Cassady, in real life) who constantly is adrift among the three women he has married.

The uplifting part of the book is found in the way that things somehow work out for everyone involved, even though they lack resources, insight, and appropriate caution. In their giddy gambles on new experiences, they hit the winning numbers often enough to be able to keep coming back for more. Their rootlessness and commitment to experimentation define them in the same way that the Depression defined their parents.

The brilliance of this book is that although you will probably not approve of the irresponsible lives the characters live, you will find yourself deeply involved with them. You will probably also know how they feel. In one vivid sequence, the bipolar Moriarty recreates a memory by almost crashing the car he is driving . . . just to make his point. In the aftermath, he quicky falls asleep, and someone else has to drive.

Youth can be very manipulative, and Kerouac's male pals certainly exemplify that impulsive weakness.

Format: Taschenbuch
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

This was my first introduction to Jack Kerouac. I found this book to be fantastic! For those like me who have heard of Kerouac and "On The Road" but really do not know what it is about I will provide a brief synopsis without giving too much away. It is the story of Sal Paradise (substitute for Kerouac) and his friend, Dean Moriarty (modeled on Kerouac's friend) and their late 1940s cross country searches for "it", music, sex, liquor...life, as they know it.

Those who have read my other reviews may be surprised at my gushing praise for this classic of the Beat Generation. The life style described in this book is, in my opinion, utterly disgusting. What makes this book great, to my taste, is the writing style. It is a fast paced, stream of consciousness description of totally irresponsible, hedonistic behavior. I would not recommend this life style to anyone but I do recommend the book to any fan of great writing with the maturity to avoid the siren call to take to the road.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von express am 27. Mai 2013
Format: Taschenbuch
To enable his frenetic continuous typing, Jack Kerouac simply scotch-taped several sheets of tracing paper together, creating a 120-foot-long roll he fed into his type writer - not as some critics would have it, a roll of Teletype-paper. The entire scroll consists indeed of one single paragraph, written single-spaced, and giving the real names of the protagonists in the published novel. The scroll was auctioned off by the Kerouac estate for $2.4 million in 2001 to Jim Irsay (owner of the football team Indianapolis Colts), who makes it available for public viewing.

The novel is set in 1947, although it was written in 1950. Neal Cassady and Jack Kerouac (Dean Moriarty and Sal Paradise in the book) started their 1800 miles drive to Mexico City to visit William Burroughs. Kerouac compares the narrative as a specific era in jazz history, "somewhere between its Charlie Parker Ornithology period and another period that began with Miles Davis." The narrative begins in New York, passes Chicago and drives across the continent to San Francisco, where Sal takes a job as a night watchman at a boarding house for merchant sailors. But he is soon on the road again.

The "civilized" world he’d left behind was gripped in Cold War paranoia under the impression of the Korean War, the U.S. had built the hydrogen bomb and Kerouac was depressed and convinced he might as well die. But high on grass, bouncing along Mexican roads, he experienced a happy hallucination: a microburst of gold shot from the sky right into his startled eyes. This was the moment, he later wrote, that at last made On the Road possible, the "great Occasion" when he had the vision that Dean was God, and God had the face of President Franklin D.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ronald St. John am 6. Juli 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
Fact-based account of post-war, rebellious intellectuals who embrace poverty and aimlessness in a kinetic quest for drugs, alcohol, sex, jazz, and existential insight. Kerouac was on an extended benzedrine binge for the first draft of this book, and the prose is sometimes disjointed, but the enthusiastic, poetic idealizations of his vagabond experiences make the trip worthwhile.
One is reminded of Cannery Row in observing the characters' dreamy intentions and the comically alcoholic results, except that Steinbeck was aware of his characters' absurdity while Kerouac takes himself and his drug-addled companions way too seriously. Kerouac unintentionally mocks the real life poverty of those he encounters on the road by the fact he is supported by the GI Bill and his mommy (oh, excuse me, his "aunt").
Before you decide to imitate Kerouac, be sure you've got a generous "aunt", and be advised that in real life the gone cat burned out his liver and died at 47. Yes, yes, yes, yes, uh, oops.
