On the Road
Jack Kerouac
"On the Road" is a novel that makes the reader want to go out there, seize the day, and live, live, live! Jack Kerouac, creator of the "beat generation" best sums up his philosophy as "everything belongs to me because i am poor". The failure of ideology and of the American Dream in the 1960s gave young dreamers who were eager to live just one way out: the road.

45. Kerouac, Jack
Jack Kerouac (March 12, 1922 – October 21, 1969), also known as King of the Beatniks and Father of the Hippies, was an American writer, poet, artist, and novelist.
Kerouac, Jack
From New World Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Previous (Jack Johnson (boxer)) Next (Jack London) Jack Kerouac (March 12, 1922 – October 21, 1969), also known as "King of the Beatniks" and "Father of the Hippies," was an American writer, poet, artist, and novelist. He is most famous for his simple, confessional, and meandering writing style that describes his nomadic travel experiences captured throughout his novels, especially On the Road. Early on in his college days, Kerouac embraced a bohemian lifestyle that lead him to take drug-fueled cross-country trips. He notes in his personal writings and in his novels that he rejected the values of the time and was seeking to break free from society's restraints. These practices no doubt led to his life-long addictions and habitual drug use, including psilocybin and LSD. He also rejected traditional ideas about spirituality, and devoted time to studying Buddhism. Kerouac often wrote of every person and place he encountered as being holy. Yet while his writings were suffused with religious imagery, it was usually stained with decadence. Perhaps he was searching for God , but the holiness he sought for himself was not contingent on any kind of morality . He instead resonated with the moral vacuum of his times and became one with it. His flirtation with Buddhism was a superficial one; he required drugs to understand it. His friends Gary Snyder and Alan Watts, on the other hand, were serious students of Buddhism and their lives were positively affected by it. None of the personal influences in his life helped him to understand that genuine spirituality is achieved only through disciplined efforts.

The legendary 1951 scroll draft of On the Road , published as Kerouac originally composed it IN THREE WEEKS in April of 1951, Jack Kerouac wrote his first full draft of On the Road —typed as a single-spaced paragraph on eight long sheets of tracing paper, which he later taped together to form a 120-foot scroll. A major literary event when it was published in Viking hardcover in 2007, this is the uncut version of an American classic—rougher, wilder, and more provocative than the official work that appeared, heavily edited, in 1957. This version, capturing a moment in creative history, represents the first full expression of Kerouac’s revolutionary aesthetic.

A short article about the 1999 Lowell Celebrates Kerouac festival and the battle over control of Kerouac s literary estate.
The Boston Phoenix
September 30 - October 7, 1999
Dead beats
by Chris Wright
The 12th annual Lowell Celebrates Kerouac! festival promises everything you'd expect from an event honoring the town's most famous native son. But in between the beat poetry and the jazz, festival organizers have found themselves presiding over an unanticipated sideshow: a power struggle between Kerouac scholars and family members. The story boils down to a bitter fight between two men: Gerald Nicosia, a Kerouac biographer and the literary executor for Kerouac's late daughter, Jan; and John Sampas, brother to Kerouac's third wife, Stella, and executor of Jack Kerouac's estate. For years, the two have been wrestling in and out of court for control of Jack's letters, journals, and personal items valued at around $10 million. The situation is as ugly as it is complex. Nicosia has accused Sampas of selling Kerouac's belongings for profit. The other side has shot back with allegations that Nicosia manipulated Kerouac's sickly daughter for personal gain. Nicosia has charged Sampas with making death threats against him. Now, amid the bickering and litigation, Nicosia has taken aim at the Lowell celebration, claiming he has been unfairly banned from taking part. "John Sampas calls the shots and he doesn't want me there," says Nicosia, noting that Sampas is a sponsor of the festival. "Mr. Sampas takes the position that no one can speak on Kerouac without his permission." Festival organizers, Nicosia claims, are intimidated by Sampas's clout and indentured to his cash thus their decision to blackball Nicosia.

55. Ladder To Nirvana - 57.10
1957 review of Kerouac s On the Road by Phoebe Lou Adams.
O C T O B E R 1 9 5 7
A review of Jack Kerouac's On the Road
by Phoebe Lou Adams

J ACK KEROUAC'S second novel, On the Road (Viking, $3.95), concerns the adventures of the narrator, Sal Paradise, a war veteran who is studying on the G.I. bill and writing a book between drinks, and his younger friend, Dean Moriarty late of reform school. Neither of these boys can sit still. They race back and forth from New York to San Francisco, they charge from one party to another, they tour jazz joints, and Dean complicates the pattern by continually getting married. At odd moments they devote a little thought to finding Dean's father, a confirmed drunk who is presumably bumming around somewhere west of the Mississippi.
Dean is the more important character. Mr. Kerouac makes considerable play with his disorderly childhood, his hitch in the reform school, and his rootlessness, but his activities seem less a search for stability than a determined pursuit of euphoria. Dope, liquor, girls, jazz, and fast cars, in that order, are Dean's ladder to nirvana, and so much time is spent on them that it is hard to keep track of any larger pattern behind all the scuttling about.
The trouble is a matter of repetition. Everything Mr. Kerouac has to tell about Dean has been told in the first third of the book, and what comes later is a series of variations on the same theme. It's a good theme the inability of a young man of enormous energy, considerable intelligence, and a kind of muddled talent for absorbing experience to find any congenial place for himself in organized society but the variations are all so much alike that they begin to cancel each other out.

56. James Wechsler Vs. Kerouac - "The Age Of Unthink"
This chapter from James Wechsler s Reflections of an Angry Middle-Aged Editor records Wechler s frustrating confrontation with Jack Kerouac in 1958.
"The Age of Unthink"
Note: This chapter from James Wechsler's "Reflections of an Angry Middle-Aged Editor" records Wechler's frustrating confrontation with Jack Kerouac in 1958. Other chapters of the book) are entitled, "Is Everybody Happy?", "The Liberal Retreat," and "Life Of a Salesman." TWO SEPARATE episodes inspired the reflections that led to the writing of this book, and perhaps it is appropriate to begin by recalling them. On the evening of November 6, 1958, I took part in a symposium on the Beat Generation at Hunter College. The event, if it may be so described, was sponsored by Brandeis University; the other participants were Jack Kerouac , author of On the Road and self-proclaimed voice of the Beat Generation; Kingsley Amis, the talented, witty British writer who admits to being neither young nor angry but has been so labeled on two continents; and Professor Ashley Montagu, the noted anthropologist. I almost missed the meeting, proving that books, like other productions, are prey to the accident of history. It occurred just two days after the state elections of that year; I was still tired, if not beat, and the prospect of a long evening of recitation and listening seemed less congenial than, say, watching a basketball game at Madison Square Garden. But I had a certain curiosity about Kerouac, whom I had never seen, and about the subject, which I had heard discussed with increasing frequency and earnestness by my son (then sixteen) and some of his friends. In fact I had begun to feel out of touch. So, though ill-prepared to deliver a speech (and even less prepared for what happened), I reached the auditorium a few moments after Kerouac had begun what turned out to be a forty-minute rendition, and there was more than one reprise.
