Description Jack Kerouac : Road Novels 1957-1960: On the Road/The Dharma Bums/The Subterraneans/Tristessa/Lonesome Traveler/From the Journals 1949-1954 de Jack Kerouac:

The raucous, exuberant, often wildly funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" instantly defined a generation upon its publication in 1957: it was, in the words of a "New York Times" reviewer, "the clearest and most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat.'" Written in the mode of ecstatic improvisation that Allen Ginsberg described as "spontaneous bop prosody," Kerouac's novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. In his portrayal of the fervent relationship between the writer Sal Paradise and his outrageous, exasperating, and inimitable friend Dean Moriarty, Kerouac created one of the great friendships in American literature- and his rendering of the cities and highways and wildernesses that his characters restlessly explore are a hallucinatory travelogue of a nation he both mourns and celebrates. Now, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Kerouac's landmark novel, The Library of America collects On the Road together with four other autobiographical "road books" published in the late 1950s and early 1960s. "The Dharma Bums" (1958), at once an exploration of Buddhist spirituality and an account of the Bay Area poetry scene, is notable for its thinly veiled portraits of Kerouac's acquaintances, including Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, and Kenneth Rexroth. "The Subterraneans" (1958) recounts a love affair set amid the bars and bohemian haunts of San Francisco. "Tristessa" (1960) is a melancholy novella describing a relationship with a prostitute in Mexico City. Lonesome Traveler (1960) collects travel essays that evoke journeys in Mexico and Europe, and concludes with an elegiac lament for the lost world of the American hobo. Also included in "Road Novels" are selections from Kerouac's journal, which provide a fascinating perspective on his early impressions of material eventually incorporated into "On the Road."
