What did Jack Kerouac write?

1 Answer/Comment
Kerouac is generally considered to be the father of the Beat movement, although he actively disliked such labels. Kerouac's method was heavily influenced by the prolific explosion of Jazz, especially the Bebop genre established by Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and others. Later, Kerouac would include ideas he developed from his Buddhist studies that began with Gary Snyder. He often referred to his style as spontaneous prose[citation needed], a literary technique akin to nothing. Although Kerouac’s prose was spontaneous and purportedly without edits, he primarily wrote autobiographical novels (or Roman à clef) based upon actual events from his life and the people with whom he interacted. On the Road excerpt in the center of Jack Kerouac Alley Many of his books exemplified this approach, including On the Road, Visions of Cody, Visions of Gerard, Big Sur, and The Subterraneans. The central features of this writing method were the ideas of breath (borrowed from Jazz and from Buddhist meditation breathing), improvising words over the inherent structures of mind and language, and not editing a single word (much of his work was edited by Donald Merriam Allen, a major figure in Beat Generation poetry who edited some of Ginsberg's work as well). Connected with his idea of breath was the elimination of the period, preferring to use a long, connecting dash instead. As such, the phrases occurring between dashes might resemble improvisational jazz licks. When spoken, the words might take on a certain kind of rhythm, though none of it pre-meditated.

A literal interpretation means taking the meaning exactly from what is said, or what it stands for. One way I can describe this is by thinking about my own experience with children with autistic spectrum disorders. I once made the mistake of saying "Go to the toilet and wash your hands" and I found the poor boy washing his hands in the toilet. Another example is thinking about crossing the road...ask yourself what a green man on a road crossing means, then ask what a red man means...straightforward right? A red man means stop BUT only if you interpret it literally, what happens if the red man appears when you are half way across the road? Then the red man means "move very fast!" A person with ASD may stop in the middle of the road, using the literal interpretation and wait for the green man to appear.
