Summary
Here, on the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary, is the never-before-published original scroll edition of On the Road. 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. The original version of On the Road is rougher, wilder, and more sexually explicit than the published novel. Kerouac also uses the real names of his friends, including Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs, and this adds to the text's powerful and intimate immediacy. This edition was prepared by Howard Cunnell who, along with three other Kerouac scholars, also provides a critical introduction that explains the history of On the Road as well as anchoring the text in its historical context
Summary
On the Road is a thinly fictionalized autobiography, filled with a cast made of Kerouac's real life friends, lover, 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 level of American thought and culture
