摘 要

《在路上》被出版后成为了“垮掉的一代”的“圣书”。《在路上》给那些生活在四十年代末五十年代初,对社会强烈不满的年轻人一个崛起的动力。本论文解析了书中“垮掉的一代”,解释他们行为的真实目的其实只是寻求精神自由,逃避现实社会的压迫。本论文通过分析书中“垮掉的一代”的各种现象和生活风格来探索主人公的内心世界。他们想要自由,想要一个全新世界的出发点是对的。但是他们采取的方式过于偏激而不被主流社会所接受。如今,如果我们想要改变现状,我们会采取一种更加合理和合法的方式。

In Columbia University, he met Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and Neal Cassady. They were all of the Beat Generation. They had a great influence on Kerouac, so Neal Cassady became the main character in On the Road —Dean Cassady. The plots of On the Road were based on the Kerouac’s travel across the America with Neal Cassady. Jack published his first novel The Town and the City in 1950. He published his second novel On the Road in 1957. And then he published Dharma Bums (1958), Book of Dream (1960), The Subterranean (1958), Desolation Angels (1961) etc. On the Road was Jack’s representative works. This is an autobiographical novel.

Jack Kerouac was a spokesperson of the Beat Generation. His work On the Road was the most famous works of the Beat Generation. On the Road was about young people traveling everywhere and their desire for escaping from real society and looking for freedom. In the book, protagonists took four different trips. On the road, they were drinking, smoking marijuana, car-stealing, sleeping around, talking about the oriental Zen Buddhism. They abandoned their white identity and escaped from the mainstream society, trying to find their spiritual freedom. But finally, because of their ignorance of black culture and the exclusiveness of the white identity, they failed in achieving their goals.
