  • On The Road By Jack Kerouac - 716 words
    At first glance, the novel On The Road and the film The Wall by Pink Floyd seem to have very little in common. The novel is a story about two young men, Sal and Dean, who travel the country in search of good times. The film is about a man, Pink, trapped in his life of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Upon closer inspection though, one can see that there are many common underlying themes. I will attempt to uncover and explain these themes in the context of this paper. I will examine these four themes: life is a battle, Claw your way through this disguise, freedom and just another brick I will begin by discussing the first theme: Life Is A Battle. Deans whole life has been a battle. He has never ...

  • Book Report On The Road To Mekkah - 1,445 words
    In Road to Makkah, the reader is initially confronted with a protagonist who is on a journey through the deserts of Saudi Arabia. However, as one continues to read the book, the reader is aware that there are actually two parallel journeys going on: the journey through the deserts of Saudi Arabia, and also the journey through the life of Muhammad Asad on his way to Islam. At first I found the book rather hard to follow because of the constant cutting from desert scenes to the description of the life he left behind in Europe, but once I got past this initial hurdle, the two plots no longer posed a problem to my understanding of Muhammad Asad's life. Following the author's journey from Europe ...

  • On The Road - 524 words
    Jack Kerouac is considered a legend in history as one of America's best and foremost Beat Generation authors. The term "Beat" or "Beatnic" refers to the spontaneous and wandering way of life for some people during the period of postwar America, that seemed to be induced by jazz and drug-induced visions. "On the Road" was one such experience of Beatnic lifestyle through the eyes and heart of Jack Kerouac. It was a time when America was rebuilding after WW I. Describing the complexity and prosperity of the postwar society was not Karouac's original intent. However, this book described it a way everyone could visualize. It contained examples and experiences of common people looking for new and ...

  • On The Road - 872 words
    Jack Kerouac was born in Massachusetts, in 1922. Kerouac quit school and joined the Merchant Marine, starting the travels which would become On the Road his most acclaimed novel. It is said to be an account of Kerouac's ("Sal Paradises") travels with Neal Cassady ("Dean Moriarty"). According to Allen Ginsberg, Kerouac typed the first draft of On the Road on a fifty-foot long roll of paper.

  • Kerouac And Tyler, On The Road And Saint Maybe - 1,033 words
    Wikipedia encyclopedia suggests the word experience may refer (somewhat ambiguously) both to mentally unprocessed immediately-perceived events as well as to the purported wisdom gained in subsequent reflection on those events or interpretation of them. Most wisdom-experience accumulates over a period of time, though one can also experience (and gain general wisdom-experience from) a single specific momentary event. In novels On the Road and Saint Maybe, by Jack Kerouac and Anne Tyler, the authors stress upon life as a set of experiences and how these builds a person. Utterly and completely carefree are the characters, blowing and twisting on the maelstrom of their whims, each lunging twinge ...

    ... ound the corner of Seventh Street. Anne Tyler in her novel, Saint Maybe, shows ordinary people and their ordinary lives. She displays the fact that people in this world are only human and are hence bound to make mistakes, yet they struggle to survive with the attempt to work out the problems they face in relationships and communication. Saint Maybe is an involving story, played out over many years, with appealing characters that grow and evolve. It also provokes thoughts about so many things: religion, redemption, the randomness of life, but above all, the nature of family and how it too affects the course of life. The journey of the seventeen-year-old protagonist, Ian Bedloe, begins whe ...

  • Forces Of A Generation In "on The Road" By Jack Kerouac - 826 words
    On the Road, by Jack Kerouac is a book about the need to wander and the rejection of authority and tradition in post World War II American youth. It illustrates the ethos of the American Beat Generation of the 1950s: freedom, mysticism, and individuality. Kerouac most likely wrote this book in order to provide a semi-autobiographical account of his own adventures hitchhiking around the United States as well as to provide an account and a rationalization for his wanderings and attempt to explain the forces that created the beat generation. The plot of the novel mirrors the main conflict of the book. Sal Paradise is torn between his desires to lead the normal, traditional life pushed upon him ...

  • 3 Goals - 303 words
    Little Lessons I've learned on my way In his poem, The Road Not Taken, Robert Frost wrote, "Two roads diverge in the woods, and I took the one least traveled by/ And that has made all the difference." In this poem, the narrator had a choice of two roads. However, I've discovered that life is a little more complicated. Sometimes the path we embark on is not always the one we choose. Sometimes we are pushed or pulled in certain directions and we have to react to our environment. My path to a college education has been filled with bumps, potholes, detours and roadblocks. The signs often read "yield" and "do not enter." The path has not always been clear, but I've kept my eyes opened, focused on ...

Captain Clark wrote, I have been wet and as cold in every part as I ever was in my life (De Voto 240). At noon, the party halted on the top of the mountain to warm and dry themselves a little while the horses grazed on some near by grass. All of the men were in fear of freezing.

  • Kerouac A Failure In His Own Eyes - 1,302 words
    Jack Kerouac was the spark that started the flame of the Beat Generation though, through his own eyes, he felt like a failure. Jack keyed the term beat generation in a conversation with John Clellon Holmes, another of the beat generation poets, in 1948 (). The Beat Generation might not have happened without the help of Jack. What formed him into the blunt writer that he was, was his loving family, the death of his brother, movies, college, and newfound friends. Jack Kerouac, baptized Jean Louis Lebris de Kerouac, was born to Lou and Gabrielle Ange LEvesque on March 12, 1992 in Lowell, Massachusetts. Jack had two older siblings: brother Gerard, five years older than [whom he looked up to], an ...

    The text on the dust jacket of Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild makes it clear that the thread of suspense running through this compelling book isn't necessarily tied to the fate of its subject. "In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley," the jacket reads. "His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter." With the demise of McCandless already revealed, Krakauer concentrates on the fo ...

  • The Long Walk - 1,564 words
    Walking, there appears to be no end in sight, stranded on a country road for all eternity. It is almost dark; so far, away from all that is familiar. The trees are groaning against the wind's fury: when did the wind start blowing? Have I been walking for so long that time hysterically slipped away! The leaves are rustling about swirling through the air like discarded post-it notes: smashing, slapping against the trees and blacktop, "splat-snap." Where did the sun go? It gave the impression only an instant ago, or had it been longer; that it was going to be a still and peaceful day; has panic from hunger and walking so long finally caught up. Waking up this morning, had I been warned of the i ...
