Sulla strada Scritto in tre settimane, su un un enorme rotolo di carta per telescriventi, Sulla strada usc nel 1957, e il grande successo di pubblico ne fece subito un libro di culto, capace di definire, e in qualche misura anche di fondare, uno stile di vita e di pensiero Se vero che la beat generation ha tratto dal romanzo e dalla biografia di Jack Kerouac i tratti pi marcati e universali della propria fisionomia, delle proprie estasi, speranze e disperazioni, anche vero che il disagio nevrotico di cui esso si fa interprete costituisce la prima clamorosa sfida al postbellico American Dream, e finisce dunque per incarnare simbolicamente qualsiasi forma di opposizione, qualsiasi lacuna di resistenza e di marginalit rispetto ai poteri egemoni Il viaggio verso Sud di Sal e Dean in realt l autore e l amico Neal Cassady, irriducibile dropout , lungo le strade infinite del Texas e del Messico, in definitiva un viaggio verso il nulla, nel quale ci che importa non arrivare, ma andare, muoversi indefinitamente nella speranza, che si sa comunque vana, di esorcizzare un ansia e un male di vivere sempre crescenti, a dispetto delle rischiose vie di fuga offerte dall alcool, dalla marijuana, dalla benzedrina L ineludibile bisogno di ribellarsi, il valore dell amicizia, la ricerca dell autenticit e di una difficilissima appartenenza offrono le coordinate elementari di un universo giovanile segnato dall ombra nera della dissoluzione e della morte un universo che esigeva allora, ed esige tuttora, il rispetto e l autocritica che si deve alle vittime di un silenzioso quanto micidiale dramma storico.

  1. This is probably the worst book I have ever finished, and I m forever indebted to the deeply personality disordered college professor who assigned it, because if it hadn t been for that class I never would ve gotten through, and I gotta tell you, this is the book I love to hate.I deeply cherish but don t know that I fully agree with Truman Capote s assessment that _On the Road_ is not writing at all it s typing Lovely, Turman, but let s be clear typing by itself is fairly innocuous thi This is probably the worst book I have ever finished, and I m forever indebted to the deeply personality disordered college professor who assigned it, because if it hadn t been for that class I never would ve gotten through, and I gotta tell you, this is the book I love to hate.I deeply cherish but don t know that I fully agree with Truman Capote s assessment that _On the Road_ is not writing at all it s typing Lovely, Turman, but let s be clear typing by itself is fairly innocuous this book is so awful it s actually offensive, and even incredibly damaging.I d be lying if I said there aren t parts of this book that re so bad they re good good as in morbidly fascinating, in the manner of advanced stage syphilis slides from seventh grade health class Keroac s ode to the sad eyed Negro is actually an incredible, incredible example of something I m glad has been typed For the record So we can all see it clearly, and KNOW.Please don t get me wrong My disproportionately m...

  2. I m supposed to like On the Road, right Well, I don t I hate it and I always have There are a lot of reasons why I hate it I find Kerouac s attitude toward the world pathetically limited and paternalistic InOn the Roadhe actually muses about how much he wishes that he could have been born a Negro in the antebellum South, living a simple life free from worry, and does so seemingly without any sense of irony On every page, the book is about how Kerouac a young, white, middle class, so I m supposed to like On the Road, right Well, I don t I hate it and I always have There are a lot of reasons why I hate it I find Kerouac s attitude toward the world pathetically limited and paternalistic InOn the Roadhe actually muses about how much he wishes that he could have been born a Negro in the antebellum South, living a simple life free from worry, and does so seemingly without any sense of irony On every page, the book is about how Kerouac a...

  4. This is the book which has given me anxiety attacks on sleepless nights.This is the book which has glared at me from its high pedestal of classical importance in an effort to browbeat me into finally finishing it And this is that book which has shamed me into feigning an air of ignorance every time I browsed any of the countless 1001 books to read before you die lists.Yes Jack Kerouac, you have tormented me for the past 3 years and every day I couldn t summon the strength to open another page o This is the book which has given me anxiety attacks on sleepless nights.This is the book which has glared at me from its high pedestal of classical importance in an effort to browbeat me into finally finishing it And this is that book which has shamed me into feigning an air of ignorance every time I browsed any of the countless 1001 books to read before you die lists.Yes Jack Kerouac, you have tormented me for the past 3 years and every day I couldn t summon the strength to open another page of On the Road and subject my brain to the all too familiar torture of Sal s sleep inducing, infuriatingly monotonous narration Finally, I conquer you after nearly 3 years of dithering I am the victorious one in the battle in which you have relentlessly assaulted my finer senses with your crassness and innate insipidity and dared me to plod on I can finally beat my chest in triumph ugh pardon th...

  5. I ve been thinking about this book a lot lately, so I figured that I d go back and write something about it When I first read this book, I loved it as a piece of art, but its effect on me was different than I expected So many people hail Kerouac as the artist who made them quit their jobs and go to the road, become a hippie or a beat and give up the rest When I read it though, I had been completely obsessed with hippie culture for a long time, and it caused me to steer away from it for a whil I ve been thinking about this book a lot lately, so I figured that I d go back and write something about it When I first read this book, I loved it as a piece of art, but its effect on me was different than I expected So many people hail Kerouac as the artist who made them quit their jobs and go to the road, become a hippie or a beat and give up the rest When I read it though, I had been completely obsessed with hippie culture for a long time, and it caused me to steer away from it for a while While I thought that it would be a rollicking tale of freedom and glory, I found that all of Dean s conquests were tainted by ...

  7. Kerouac s masterpiece breathes youth and vigor for the duration and created the American bohemian beat lifestyle which has been the subject of innumerable subsequent books, songs, and movies I have read this at least two or three times and always feel a bit breathless and invigorated because of the restlessness of the text and the vibrance of the characters There was an extraordinary exhibit at the Pompidou Center earlier this year where the original draft in Kerouac s handwriting was laid o Kerouac s masterpiece breathes youth and vigor for the duration and created the American bohemian beat lifestyle which has been the subject of innumerable subsequent books, songs, and movies I have read this at least two or three times and always feel a bit breathless and invigorated because of the restlessness of the text and the vibrance of the characters There was an extraordinary exhibit at the Pompidou Center earlier this year where the original draft in Kerouac s handwriting was laid out end to end in a glass case It was like seeing the original copy of Don Quixote in the royal palace in Madrid very moving In any case, there is no excuse not to read this wonderful high point of mid 20th century American literature.Re read and found both beauty and sadness in this work The sadness stems from the sexism, racism, and homophobia expressed throu...

  8. Although the ideas hold a certain appeal, this book is ultimately just a half assed justification of some pretty stupid, self destructive, irresponsible, and juvenile tendencies and attitudes, the end result of which is a validation of being a deadbeat loser, a perpetual child This validation is dressed up as a celebration of freedom etc As literary art, stylistically, the book is pretty bad The analogies to bebop or even free jazz are misguided That improvisation was by talented musicians, Although the ideas hold a certain appeal, this book is ultimately just a half assed justification of some pretty stupid, self destructive, irresponsible, and juvenile tendencies and attitudes, the end result of which is a validation of being a deadbeat loser, a perpetual child This validation is dressed up as a celebration of freedom etc As literary art, stylistically, the book is pretty bad The analogies to bebop or even free jazz are misguided That improvisation was by talented musicians, or at least musicians who understood music, had a remarkable ear Kerouac is just rambl...

  10. Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the roadI am not really into classics.I always preferred the fantasy genre, due to an innate escapism, a vivid imagination and a constant longing for magic But as you may tell, I didn t cast spells while reading On the Road I didn t climb the dark wizard s tower, nor heard prophecies whispered in the dark I set my sword aside for a while, and hushed my heart s desire to experience passionate romances After a dear friend s ravNothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the roadI am not really into classics.I always preferred the fantasy genre, due to an innate escapism, a vivid imagination and a constant longing for magic But as you may tell, I didn t cast spells while reading On the Road I didn t climb the dark wizard s tower, nor heard prophecies whispered in the dark I set my sword aside for a while, and hushed my heart s desire to experience passionate romances After a dear friend s raving about Jack Kerouac, I succumbed to peer pressure And I am rather glad that I didI was surprised, as always, by how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt The world was suddenly rich with possibilityIf you must know one thing about On the Road...

  14. This was a 4 star book based on what it represents, the history of the genre, and my enjoyment of travel From the get go, this is a stream of consciousness romp through North America It seems like almost every city in the United States is mentioned at least once as Sal Paradise tells of his travels, the people he meets, those who join him, and his wild vagabond companion Dean Moriarity I don t feel like the style of this book will appeal to everyone and I can easily see many losing interest p This was a 4 star book based on what it represents, the history of the genre, and my enjoyment of travel From the get go, this is a stream of consciousness romp through North America It seems like almost every city in the United States is mentioned at least once as Sal Paradise tells of his travels, the people he meets, those who join him, and his wild vagabond companion Dean Moriarity I don t feel like the style of this book will appeal to everyone and I can easily see many losing interest part way in But, if you are a fan of travelling in America, a scholar of literary genres, a hipster, and or grew up in the 50s travelling the great American highways before interstates, you will find s...

  15. I personally can t stand the characters They cover up irresponsibility and real hurt to people in the guise of being artists However, I do think there isto this story.Sure, they are jerks and they are bums and they are full of a lot of BS but as the book progresses, it becomes clear that they know it These guys are also WW2 vets, and very dissimilar to the hippies who follow them, they do not have any anti American or anti establishment feelings Also, they show a deep remorse and guilt I personally can t stand the characters They cover up irresponsibility and real hurt to people in the guise of being artists However, I do think there isto this story.Sure, they are jerks and they are bums and they are full of a lot of BS but as the book progresses, it becomes clear that they know it These guys are also WW2 vets, and very dissimilar to the hippies who follow them, they do not have any anti American or anti establishment feelings Also, they show a deep remorse and guilt over their actions There is a shame, because they recognize what jerks they are After several weeks of living with the mexican girl and her son, the narrator deserts her and he knows that he ll never live up ...
