  Visions of Cody
To read "On the Road" but not "Visions of Cody" is to take a nice sightseeing tour but to forgo the spectacular rapids of Jack Kerouac's wildest writing.
He called this new work "Visions of Cody." Kerouac was like a mechanic who had started out to repair a car with spare parts and had ended up building an entirely new vehicle instead.
When Allen Ginsberg first read "Visions of Cody" in manuscript, he wrote Cassady: "Jack's book arrived and it is a holy mess." If Ginsberg, Kerouac's most sympathetic reader, had trouble with the book, at least at first, then it should surprise no one if some other readers stumble on the problems the book presents.

Visions of Cody is a novel by Jack Kerouac, perhaps his most stylistically free and varied.
The first section of the book is essentially a collection of short stream-of-consciousness essays, which Kerouac called "sketches", many simply describing elements of Dulouz's (Kerouac's) post-World War II New York City environment, from the texture and smells of a lunch counter to St.
Some of Visions of Cody is a fast-forward recapitulation of the events described in On the Road, which was also about Kerouac and Cassady.

Cody is Cody - you couldn't scratch him off an etching gargoyle, dingbat; the King of all my friends'".
Often regarded as one of the best examples of Kerouac's 'spontaneous prose', 'Visions of Cody' is a lively description and celebration of life, and in particular the life of Cody Pomeray.
The novel painstakingly describes the details of life, and attempts to explain the encompassing emotions which make Cody who he is. We experience Cody's journey from youth to manhood, even up to the point of being presented with transcripts of Cody and Jack's actual conversations.

And since Visions of Cody is narrated overall by Duluoz, yet further disturbance arises because he disconcertingly casts himself temporarily as a third-person narrator, so drawing attention to the work's fictional structure.
In Visions of Cody the focus falls on the issue of authenticity and its unattainability, and this matches the radical decentering generated by the extreme oscillation between split voices, each fleetingly established and rapidly abandoned.

 The Merton Journal.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The term 'visions' is typical of the outlook of Kerouac and other 'beat writers' which was essentially 'apocalyptic' - other common words in their vocabulary include 'angels,' 'holy,' 'ghost,' and 'dream' - a sense of standing on the brink and mediating revelations of the Golden Eternity beyond the veil of reality.
The meaning of the term 'vision' is ambiguous: it refers both to the visions we have of a particular person and the visions that person experiences himself or herself.
So in seeking 'Visions of Tom' we are seeking to see Merton in a new light - as a monastic elder brother to Kerouac and the 'Beats' - and at the same time seeking insights into Merton's own vision and experience of the world.

Just as the ancestry of the Beat writers can be traced through numerous preceding instances of literary Bohemia, so the "unspeakable visions" of the Beat Generation will live on in the instances which follow.

Whaley looks for a hitherto ignored space in Beat culture in which the aspirations, experiments and prejudices of the Beats can be directly related to precisely the kind of struggles that cultural studies itself is engaged in as a field.

 Traces of the Border   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Of course, this didn't just happen in a book: the description of the trip to Mexico in On the Road -- and its later revision in Visions of Cody -- is an account of Jack Kerouac's first trip to Mexico with his friend, Neal Cassady, and is a very heavily edited account of their experiences.
Perhaps it is this twinge of embarrassment that causes the Mexico trip in Visions of Cody to be remarkably chaste in comparison.
Each trip shared many of the features that characterized his first border-crossing: sex, drugs and writing -- though, as in Visions of Cody, he would continue to de-emphasize the extent to which his border-crossings were hedonistic romps among the Fellaheen.

 Jack Kerouac Page - DHARMA beat
At an early age, he was profoundly marked by the death of his elder brother Gérard, later prompting him to write the book Visions of Gerard.
Kerouac's motto was "first-thought=best thought", and many of his books exemplified this approach including On the Road, Visions of Cody, Visions of Gerard, Big Sur, and The Subterraneans.
The central features of this writing method was the idea of breath (borrowed from Jazz), improvising words over the inherent structures of mind and language, and not editing a single word.
