Cyber Party for Famed Beat Author Jack Kerouac

Literary Criticism
Featuring the poem, "Sweet Brother Beat Bop Daddy K"



 

In observance of the current surge of interest in the life and works of famed Beat author Jack Kerouac, another half-way sorta-somewhat well-known author is hosting a kind of party on MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/aberjhani .

 
Along with writers Allen Ginsberg, Diane Di Prima, William Burroughs, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Bob Kaufman, and many others, Kerouac provided the 1950s-1960s Beat movement with some of its most significant titles. One of those titles is the classic novel On the Road, for which a 50th anniversary edition has just been released.

“Aside from the fiftieth anniversary edition of On the Road,” said author-poet Aberjhani, “a new biography on Kerouac by Douglas G. Brinkley, a study of his work called Why Jack Kerouac Matters, by John Leland, and a volume containing the famous original scroll of his manuscript for On the Road have all come out just this week. That’s one helluva commemoration for a writer who left us back in 1969 but whose literary reputation seems to grow stronger every year.”

As part of that commemoration, Aberjhani posted in his Harlem Renaissance Rent Party blog on MySpace the award-winning poem “Sweet Brother Beat Bop Daddy K” on the life of Kerouac. “When you visit the site,” said Aberjhani, “expect to hear jazz because that was the Beats’ music of choice.” He noted that in addition to the titles on Kerouac coming out this week, several more are slated for publication next month.
