Summary
A masterful anthology of more than five hundred haiku poems by one of the leaders of the Beat Generation and author of On the Road explores Kerouac's experimentation with the concise poetic form as examples appeared in his journals, sketchbooks, recordings, notebooks, letters, and fiction. Original.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Highlighting a lesser-known aspect of one of America's most influential authors, this new collection displays Jack Kerouac's interest in and mastery of haiku. Experimenting with this compact poetic genre throughout his career, Kerouac often included haiku in novels, correspondence, notebooks, journals, sketchbooks, and recordings. In this collection, Kerouac scholar Regina Weinreich supplements an incomplete draft of a haiku manuscript found in Kerouac's archives with a generous selection of Kerouac's other haiku, from both published and unpublished sources. With more than 500 poems, this is a must-have volume for Kerouac enthusiasts everywhere.
