Amazon.de

One of the best and most popular of Kerouac's autobiographical novels, The Dharma Bums is based on experiences the writer had during the mid-1950s while living in California, after he'd become interested in Buddhism's spiritual mode of understanding. One of the book's main characters, Japhy Ryder, is based on the real poet Gary Snyder, who was a close friend and whose interest in Buddhism influenced Kerouac. This book is a must-read for any serious Kerouac fan. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Synopsis

"The Dharma Bums" appeared just one year after the author's explosive "On The Road" had put the Beat Generation on the literary map and Kerouac on the best-seller list. The same expansiveness, humour and contagious zest for life that sparked the earlier novels sparks this one too, but through a more cohesive story. The books follow two young men engaged in a passionate search for dharma or truth. Their major adventure is the pursuit of the Zen way, which takes them climbing into the high sierras to seek the lesson of solitude.

Format: Kindle Edition
Jack Kerouac (1922-1969) would not achieve fame until the late 1950s, when a wave of interest in the Beat Movement installed him as "King of the Beats", a title, he was very uncomfortable with. Nevertheless, he rode the epic wave that started in the 1940s metropolis on the Hudson River and its epicenter Columbia. It was overwhelmed with Eastern religions, most notably Zen Buddhism and grew in the 1950s through interaction in San Francisco, carrying the counterculture's growing fascination to California. It is best described in Kerouac's own definition how the Beat Movement was a vision "of a generation of crazy, illuminated hipsters suddenly rising and roaming America, serious, bumming and hitchhiking everywhere, ragged, beatific, beautiful in an ugly graceful new way - a vision gleaned from the way we had heard the word `beat' spoken on streetcorners on Times Square and in the Village, in other cities in the downtown city night of postwar America... We'd stay up 24 hours drinking cup after cup of black coffee, playing record after record of Lester Young, Dexter Gordon, Willie Jackson, Lennie Tristano and all the rest, talking madly about that holy new feeling out there in the streets."

Dharma Bums was published in 1958, just about one year after the trail-blazing On the Road, Kerouac's quasi-autobiographical tale, had put the Beat movement on the literary map. Dharma Bums is a comparable novel but weighs in with more substance on truth or "dharma.

I have been to California and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, but after reading this thought provoking novel I realized I have never been there. Before I was just going through the motions of a tourist. Now when I go back(hopefully this Summer)I am really going to experience the beauty of the mountains and nature. This novel stirred up some very powerful emotions inside of me such as living life how I want to live it, not how everybody else wants me to live it (Up to this point in my life I am not sure I have been doing that). If it was not currently Winter I would be heading toward the American West with my rucksack, ready to climb the mountain. Read this novel I guarantee you it will be a rewarding experience.

Many a time an author decides a novel, should refelct one's life. And we see that Kerouac contains this belief. "Dharma Bums" was a beautiful description of Kerouac's interaction with Gary Snyder, one of the great Beat poets located in San Francisco. This book, not only amazed people about with it's writing, but launched an entire idea of American Buhdism. Many say that On the Road is Jack's best book, but my opinion is that On the Road is a pop version of Dharma Bums. But that is my educated opinion, my personal opinion is that I love this book. Kerouac has been a large influence on my life. As a child my mother and cousin would read me poetry and novels from the beat generation, naturally the older I got the more I started to appreciate the writing. But through it all Dharma Bums is still my favorite (W/ Cassidy's letters to Jack a close second). I recommend this book whole heartly to any individual who truly loves literture, too often this generation gets written off as a bunch of drunks, but Hemmingway and Lost gen members are remembered as a group of talented writers, they had a couple in their day. So give these writers a chance, and start with this book.

Dharma Bums is a beautiful story, though there's no real plot to speak of -- no damsel in distress, no hero facing adversity, no complicated twists . . . it's just about life.
The reader follows the typical Kerouac rucksacker as he floats along in his mid-twenties -- hiking the mountains of the west coast, thumbing his way across the country and swapping spiritual observations with Zen enthusiast and companion Japhy Ryder.
This book is a treasure, reminding the reader of the subtle beauties in nature, conversation, travel and friendship. It's a perfect fit for any fan of life.

In The Dharma Bums, Jack Kerouac continues his enthralling series of autobiographical fictions that he referred to as the Legend of Duluoz. His altar egos have several different names, such as Sal Paradise (On the Road), and in this novel, Ray Smith. Through Ray Smith, Kerouac tells of a chapter in his life that, even more than On The Road, displays his passion for living and idealistic approach to life, as well as to Buddhism. Ray Smith is not a hardcore Zen Buddhist, but an optimist who embraces the very best of Zen Buddhism, as well as Tibetan Buddhism and even Christianity. The novel does not consist of plot, but rather a series of entertaining vignettes and scraps of story that form a beautiful mosaic by novel's end. With sometimes raw, sometimes stunningly beautiful language, Kerouac transports the reader to the peak of the Matterhorn, across the country from California to North Carolina on a hitchhiking odyssey, to the beat poetry scene in San Francisco, to the ultimate destination, Desolation Peak, where Ray Smith truly finds himself. Within the novel is a cornucopia of interesting, colorful characters that do not leave the memory easily. The Dharma Bums is a book not to be read, but to be inhaled, drunk, savored and treasured.
