Title

A Quest for Language : Jack Kerouac as a Minor Author

Description

Article characterizing the literary works of Jack Kerouac as elements of his search for personal, religious, ethnic, and linguistic identity. Particular emphasis on Kerouac's French Canadian heritage roots. The ways in which Kerouac's novels can be interpreted in light of what theorists Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari call "a minor literature," and how these novels unsettle - as the author says - "traditional English prose." Chapter 16 in "Diaspora, Identity, and Language Communities," an issue of Studies in Linguistic Sciences: Illinois Working Papers.
