On The Road

Серия: "-"

On the Road swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat. Now recognized as a modern classic, its American Dream is nearer that of Walt Whitman than Scott Fitzgerald, and it goes racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion.

KEROUAC JACK (1922-1969)

Né dans le Massachusetts d’une famille de Canadiens français, Kerouac mène, après ses études, une vie errante, travaillant dans des garages, ou bien comme marin, parcourant en tous sens les États-Unis et le Mexique. Une grande partie de son abondante production est tirée de ces expériences. Parmi ses principaux livres, on peut citer, en dehors de son premier ouvrage La Ville et la cité (The Town and the City , 1950), Les Souterrains (The Subterraneans , 1958), l’autobiographique Vagabond solitaire (The Lonesome Traveller , 1960), Dr. Sax (1962), Big Sur (1962), Visions de Gérard (Visions of Gerard , 1963), et le recueil de poèmes Mexico City Blues (1959). Son œuvre la plus célèbre est toutefois Sur la route (On the Road ), qui, rédigée dès 1951, ne fut publiée qu’en 1957, faute d’éditeur qui l’accepte.

L’ouvrage, livre clé de la beat generation , est le récit des errances de l’auteur (qui se met en scène sous le pseudonyme de Sal Paradise) d’un bout à l’autre des États- Unis. Voyageant en auto-stop, logeant chez qui l’accepte, partageant femmes et alcool avec des amis de rencontre, Kerouac s’abandonne à la loi du hasard, à la recherche moins de l’aventure que d’une fraternité réelle entre les gens; il s’agit de connaître et d’aimer le monde et ceux qui y vivent, par-delà les conventions sociales, d’aller à la rencontre de soi-même. Le récit est le compte rendu de cette quête (qui fait souvent penser au vieux rêve whitmanien), avec ses moments d’euphorie, mais aussi ses passages à vide, ses instants nuls, ses échecs; parfois cocasse, parfois tragique, il rend remarquablement la nostalgie, typiquement américaine, des grands espaces.
