Critical sites about On the Road

Kerouac’s On The Road and the American Quest
“Jack Kerouac’s On The Road is the most uniquely American novel of its time. While it has never fared well with academics, On The Road has come to symbolize for many an entire generation of disaffected youngAmericans. One can focus on numerous issues wh en addressing the novel, but the two primary reasons which make the book uniquely American are its frantic Romantic search for the great American hero (and ecstasy in general), and Kerouac’s ‘Spontaneous Prose’ method of writing.”
Contains: Content Analysis, Historical Context
Author: Scott C. Holstad
From: Occasional Papers on Language, Literature and Linguistics
