Understanding Jack Kerouac introduces a new generation of readers to what Matt Theado calls Kerouac's unwieldy accretion of published work - fiction, poetry, nonfiction, selected letters, religious writing and true-story novels. Presenting this Beat Generation icon as a writer rather than as a social rebel or media celebrity, Theado asks why Kerouac's reputation has outlived disparaging beatnik associations. He takes a book-by-book approach to the sometimes confusing canon and develops a framework for understanding Kerouac's thematic concerns, writing techniques and artistic evolution.
