On the Road
Penguin, 2002 M12 31 - 352 páginas
The classic novel of freedom and the search for authenticity that defined a generation
On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouac's years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, "a sideburned hero of the snowy West." As "Sal Paradise" and "Dean Moriarty," the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac's love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make On the Road an inspirational work of lasting importance. Kerouac’s classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be “Beat” and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than fifty years ago. This Penguin Classics edition contains an introduction by Ann Charters.

Not exactly the masterpiece I had anticipated. It had the same drunken flow as Fitzgerald. At least with Hemingway, he never drank while he wrote. He only drank when he wasn't writing. Believe me, there is a difference. Leer comentario completo
