Kerouac, Jack (1922-1969) The bisexual Jack Kerouac omitted references to his homosexuality from his otherwise autobiographical works. Kerouac, born Jean-Louis Kerouac in Lowell, Massachusetts, on March 12, 1922, was the third child of a working-class, French-Canadian family. Kerouac did not speak English until attending parochial school at the age of six, the French-Canadian dialect Joual being his primary language.

Kerouac, Jack,
original name JEAN-LOUIS KEROUAC (b. March 12, 1922, Lowell, Mass., U.S.d. Oct. 21, 1969, St. Petersburg, Fla.), U.S. poet and novelist, leader and spokesman of the Beat movement q.v. ). Kerouac gave the Beat movement its name and celebrated its code of poverty and freedom in a series of novels of which the first and best known is On the Road Of French-Canadian descent, Kerouac learned English as a second language as a schoolboy. Discharged from the Navy during World War II as a schizoid personality, he served as a merchant seaman. Thereafter he roamed the United States and Mexico, working at a variety of jobs that included railroad man and forest ranger, before he published his first novel, The Town and the City (1950). Dissatisfied with fictional conventions, however, Kerouac developed a new, spontaneous, nonstop, unedited method of writing that shocked more polished writers. On the Road , written in three weeks, was the first product of the new style. A formless book, it deals with a number of frenetic trips back and forth across the country by a number of penniless young people who are in love with life, beauty, jazz, sex, drugs, speed, and mysticism but have absolute contempt for alarm clocks, timetables, road maps, mortgages, pensions, and all traditional American rewards for industry. The book drew the attention of the public to a widespread subterranean culture of poets, folksingers, hipsters, mystics, and eccentrics, including the writers Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, William Burroughs, John Clellon Holmes, Peter Orlovsky, Gary Snyder, and Philip Whalen, all important contributors to the Beat movement. All of Kerouac's works, including

Brief essay on the writer.
Kerouac: Homage To Jack Jean-Louis Kerouac: His life was the stuff of which legends are spun. The son of a printer, he was born in 1922, and grew up in a mill town, Lowell, Massachusetts. The Kerouacs were French- Canadian, descended from fur trappers and traders. Even as a boy, Kerouac knew what he would be: a writer. Athletic, rugged, handsome, he called himself Jackafter Jack London, and, like London, his vision of the world was romantic and adventurous. Yet, Kerouac might have remained in Lowell, another kid who dreamed of glory, if luck had not lent a magical hand. In high school, Kerouac was spotted playing football by an Ivy League scout and was recruited to play in the backfield for Columbia University. The university arranged for a scholarship, and Kerouac arrived on the Morningside Heights campus in the fall of 1940. Like some character in Balzac, another writer he admired, the glittering prewar city lay before him, with all the promise it held for youth. But the world has a way of holding out its treasures only to snatch them away. Freshman year, Kerouac was injured in a game and sat out the season. According to a biographer, sophomore year, Jack quit the team and dropped out of Columbia because the coach kept him on the bench. (Ann Charters

"Over the Oakland Bay Bridge I slept soundly for the first time since Denver; so that I was rudely jolted in the bus station at Market and Fourth into the memory of the fact that I was three thousand two hundred miles from my aunt's house in Paterson, New Jersey. I wandered out like a haggard ghost, and there she was, Frisco - long, bleak streets with trolley wires all shrouded in fog and whiteness. " On the Road This webpage is presented by Dan K.

n. Zen. sudden enlightenment. In 1957, Jack Kerouac, a French Canadian kid from the mill-town of Lowell, Massachusetts, published his second novel, On the Road Behind us lay the whole of America and everything I had previously known about life...We had finally found a magic land at the end of the road and we never had dreamed the extent of the magic. Kerouac was hardly the first to create a work of inspirational travel. America itself has had a long tradition of literary travel. Huck Finn, Hiawatha, and Ishmael are all testaments to such tradition. These works show that the reason behind such travel is not necessarily the prize of arrival but the experience of the journey itself. And yet, while following in such literary tradition, Kerouac broke away from previous such works in that he wrote from, and of, a setting more intimately and uniquely American than rivers and oceans and forests. This setting was the American highway. Advertisement:
Nowhere in the world is there such a criss-crossed intricate web of comings and goings than on the American highway. Nowhere else can a person drive away from an Atlantic Coast fishing town on Monday and be wading in the warm surf that rolls in just beyond the Pacific Coast Highway by Friday, and en route see the mass multicultural strangeness of the United States. No check-points and no papers of passage required. The whole country is a breathing expectant free road mother of creation. Interstates and routes, city streets and suburban avenues - they all cut across the land in long asphalt scars connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific and Canada to Mexico. And in between is the beauty of chaos and commonality inherent in the American late summer afternoon. In

(Originally written for Evergreen Review in 1969, published early 1970 at the request of publisher Barney Rossett as an obituary for Kerouac) I used to see Jack often at the old Five Spot in the beginning of 1957, when I was working there. I knew he was a writer, and all musicians knew that he loved music. You could tell by the way he sat and listened. He never tried to seem hip. He was too interested in life around him to ever think of how he appeared. Musicians understood this and were always glad to see him, because we knew that meant at least one person would be I listening. Jack was on the same wave-length as we were, so it was never necessary to talk. A few months later, poets Howard Hart and Philip Lamantia came by my place with Jack. They had decided to read their poetry with music, and Jack said he would join in, reading, improvising, rapping with the audience and singing along. Our first performance was in December of 1957 at the Brata Art Gallery on East 10th Street. It was the first jazz-poetry reading in New York. There was no advertising and it was raining, but the place was packed. Jack had become the most important figure of the time. His name was magic. In spite of the carping, whining put-downs by the furious critics, and the jealousy of some of his contemporaries for his overnight success (he had written ten books in addition to

Kerouac Jack's was rather easy to find with its large bongos hanging above the door, above a white and maroon-painted facade and floor-to-ceiling windows that used to open out in warm weather. Its location reminds me of the old Chicago riddle: what three streets in Chicago rhyme with vagina? Scroll all the way down for the answer. The only difference between then and now is that the windows have been papered over, with a sign claiming: "Re-opening soon under new management." "Sorry we missed you. Please call again," reads the sign on the door that has been there for at least a year and a half. Sometime between September 2000 through February 2001, Richard M. Daley

J ack Kerouac was born 'Jean-Louis Lebris de Kerouac' on 12 March 1922 in Lowell, Massachusetts, of French-Canadian parents. He learned first to speak a French dialect, not learning English until the age of 6. The death of his beloved older brother Gerard in July 1926 affected Jack's whole life. He married his first wife, Edie, in August 1944; the marriage was annulled in 1946. He married second wife Joan Haverty in 1951, producing one child, Janet Michelle, and a quick divorce. Childhood sweetheart Stella Sampas waited 20 years in Lowell for Jack to return to her; they married in November 1966. J ack won a football scholarship to Columbia University, where he first met Allen Ginsberg , Neal Cassady, and William S. Burroughs . He dropped out after a year and joined the Merchant Marine, then the U.S. Navy during WWII, receiving an honorable discharge, for 'indifference'. J ack often credited Jack London's "The Road" [1907] with inspiring him to become a writer. Jack made a deal to teach Neal how to write, in exchange for Neal teaching Jack how to drive; various trips across America followed, though Jack usually let others drive the car. Jack met John Clellon Holmes in 1948 and they began discussions that defined the Beat aesthetic. Jack began to write "On The Road".
