Sempre inquieto e tormentato da sè stesso Kerouac ci regala un ulteriore capolavoro letterario che tratta di ribellione, della libertà che può conquistare l'individuo che si vuole smarcare da una società malata ed in perenne nevrosi controllata. Il viaggio e la riflessione è qui riportato come l'unico vero metodo di cura per il malato sociale.

Re della beat generation, papà dei beatnik, Jack Kerouac è stato senza dubbio la più singolare figura di scrittore del dopoguerra americano. Canadese di nascita, autore di un romanzo di fattura classica, Metropoli e città (che fu lodato dalla critica), raggiunse la fama con Sulla strada e I sotterranei che si svolge nell’ambiente delle caves di San Francisco popolate di giovani ribelli a ogni morale sociale, i cui idoli sono il jazz, la velocità, il sesso, la droga e la libertà individuale… Processato per “oscenità” alla sua prima apparizione nella collana “Le Comete” di Feltrinelli, il romanzo fu assolto con una sentenza che riconosceva “la bellezza lirica di alcune sue immagini, la forza e il ritmo del racconto, la ricerca accurata di richiami ed espressioni come elementi che consentono al collegio di pervenire alla conclusione che il romanzo è opera non pornografica e non oscena; è invece opera d’arte”.

Il romanzo può essere ritenuto il seguito ideale del celeberrimo libro di Kerouac Sulla strada. Anche qui i protagonisti si "nutrono" di viaggi vissuti però non sulla strada, bensì tra le montagne, tra i boschi incantati e i deserti. Grazie a quest'opera Kerouac mobilitò migliaia di giovani di tutto il mondo portandoli a viaggiare con i loro zaini sulle spalle.

Perhaps one of the last great dual correspondences of the twentieth century, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg: The Letters reveals not only the process of creation of the two most celebrated members of the Beat Generation, but also the unfolding of a remarkable friendship of immense pathos and spiritual depth. Through this exhilarating exchange of letters, two-thirds of which have never been published before, Kerouac and Ginsberg emerge first and foremost as writers of artistic passion, innovation, and genius. Vivid and enthralling, the letters, which date from their first meeting in 1944 to Kerouac's untimely death in 1969, chronicle the endless struggle, anguish, and sacrifice involved in giving form to their literary visions.

Though Jack Kerouac began thinking about the novel that was to become On the Road as early as 1947, it was not until three weeks in April 1951, in an apartment on West Twentieth Street in Manhattan, that he wrote the first full draft that was satisfactory to him. Typed out as one long, single-spaced paragraph on eight long sheets of tracing paper that he later taped together to form a 120-foot scroll, this document is among the most significant, celebrated, and provocative artifacts in contemporary American literary history. It represents the first full expression of Kerouac's revolutionary aesthetic, the identifiable point at which his thematic vision and narrative voice came together in a sustained burst of creative energy. It was also part of a wider vital experimentation in the American literary, musical, and visual arts in the post-World War II period.

Audiobook | ISBN-10: 0670019577 | 2008 | English | MP3 (128 kb/s) | 365 Mb
American Modern Prose / Beatnik / Buddhist Fiction

Wake Up is Kerouac’s retelling of the story of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, who as a young man abandoned his wealthy family and comfortable home for a lifelong search for Enlightenment. As a compendium of the teachings of the Buddha, Wake Up is a profound meditation on the nature of life, desire, wisdom, and suffering. Distilled from a wide variety of canonical scriptures, Wake Up serves as both a concise primer on the concepts of Buddhism and as an insightful and deeply personal document of Kerouac’s evolving beliefs. It is the work of a devoted spiritual follower of the Buddha who also happened to be one of the twentieth century’s most influential novelists. Wake Up: A Life of the Buddha will be essential reading for the legions of Jack Kerouac fans and for anyone who is curious about the spiritual principles of one of the world’s great religions.

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 fictionalized autobiography, filled with a cast made of Kerouac's real life friends, lovers, and fellow travelers. Narrated by Sal Paradise, one of Kerouac's alter-egos, On the Road is a cross-country bohemian odyssey that not only influenced writing in the years since its 1957 publication but penetrated into the deepest levels of American thought and culture.
