In this pioneering critical study of Jack Kerouac’s book-length poem, Mexico City Blues—a poetic parallel to the writer’s fictional saga, the Duluoz Legend—James T. Jones uses a rich and flexible neoformalist approach to argue his case for the importance of Kerouac’s rarely studied poem. After a brief summary of Kerouac’s poetic career, Jones embarks on a thorough reading of Mexico City Blues from several different perspectives: he first focuses on Kerouac’s use of autobiography in the poem and then discusses how Kerouac’s various trips to Mexico, his conversion to Buddhism, his theory of spontaneous poetics, and his attraction to blues and jazz influenced the theme, structure, and sound of Mexico City Blues. Jones’s multidimensional explication suggests the formal and thematic complexity of Kerouac’s long poem and demonstrates the major contribution Mexico City Blues makes to post–World War II American poetry and poetics.

'I want to be considered a jazz poet blowing a long blues in an afternoon jam session on Sunday' Freewheeling and spontaneous, Mexico City Blues is Jack Kerouac's most significant and emblematic poem. Consisting of 242 loosely linked 'choruses', it takes in life, death, spirituality, jazz improvisation, memory, fantasies and dreams, all infused with the rhythm of the blues, to create a surreal and all-encompassing epic. 'A spontaneous bop prosody and original classic literature' Allen Ginsberg 'A jazz poet. His sentences frequently move into tempestuous sweeps and whorls and sometimes they have something of the rich music of Gerard Manley Hopkins or Dylan Thomas' The New York Herald Tribune

Jack Kerouac, who died in 1969 at the age of forty-seven, is renowned as the father of the "beat generation." His eighteen internationally acclaimed books -- including "On the Road, Doctor Sax, The Subterraneans, " and "Lonesome Traveler" -- were important signpost in a new American literature. Here, in "Mexico City Blues, " his only collection of poetry, his voice is as distinctive as in his prose; it roams widely across continents and cultures in a restless search for meaning and expression, giving the verse the unique qualities found in America's most distinctive contribution to music.

The Culture Of Spontaneity

Through sensitive and skillful readings of the artistic works as well as deft explications of their social, political, and intellectual contexts, Belgrad reconstructs the mentality of this counterculture, recovers its particular vocabulary, and describes how the aesthetic of spontaneity contradicted the dominant consumer society of the 1950s. Focusing on the works of many key cultural figures such as Charles Olson, William Carlos Williams, Adolph Gottlieb, Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Peter Voulkos, Merce Cunningham, Charlie Parker, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and LeRoi Jones, Belgrad substantially revises our understanding of the most significant voices of the period and convincingly argues that the art of spontaneity constituted the cutting edge of postwar American thought.

This study examines the work of six American poets who visited Mexico in the 1950s, discussing the complex relationships between location, writing, society, history and dislocation. By interacting with Mexican culture and writing about the experience, these poets had to come to terms with the foreign as well as explore their own identities as Americans. Experiencing Mexico inspired these poets to use many different voices in their poetry, a style in opposition to the hegemony of 1950s American culture. This study compares and contrasts the poets, particularly in terms of class, race, sexual orientation, and gender, and which strategies of “going foreign” each uses. Each chapter examines a poem or series of poems based upon a trip to Mexico. Analyzed in detail are Williams’ The Desert Music, Kerouac’s Mexico City Blues, Corso’s “Mexican Impressions” and “Puma in Chapultepec Zoo,” Ginsberg’s Siesta in Xbalba, Levertov’s “Tomatlan” and others, and Hayden’s An Inference of Mexico.

The celebrated Cuban American poet and novelist delivers “[a] haunting love letter to New York . . . with tales of love, death, and exile” (Publishers Weekly). Pablo Medina’s Cubop City Blues fuses raw, passionate language and elegant lyricism to breathe life into a musically-disguised New York City shaped by jazz masters, refugees, and storytellers. Our guide into Cubop City is the Storyteller, born nearly blind and shrouded in his mother’s guilt. He’s homeschooled inside his parents’ crumbling apartment with a European housekeeper, and educated through Encyclopedia Britannica, the Bible, and One Thousand and One Nights. When he’s twenty-five, his mother and father are both diagnosed with cancer, and the Storyteller alone is left to care for them. He does so by telling them stories conceived from the prolific reading that allowed his imagination to flourish despite little contact with the outside world. Through his tales—full of magic, sorrow, longing, love—Cubop City surges colorfully to life. Moving through myriad points of view, the Storyteller imagines a world populated by both well-known figures like Chano Pozo and Jelly Roll Morton, and invented characters, most notably a mustachioed man who is stabbed by a stranger and embarks on a novel-long search for his attacker. Molded in the cadence of Afro-Cuban jazz, Cubop City Blues is a symphonic portrait of a bustling urban landscape and the intimate lives that give a city its voice. “A kaleidoscopic depiction of life in exile.” —Leonard Lopate “[Medina’s] most touching novel to date . . . A rich and stunning novel with an incredibly intricate scaffolding . . . Yet another triumph.” —Rigoberto González, Los Angeles Review of Books

Best known for his "Legend of Duluoz" novels, including On the Road and The Dharma Bums, Jack Kerouac is also an important poet. In these eight extended poems, Kerouac writes from the heart of experience in the music of language, employing the same instrumental blues form that he used to fullest effect in Mexico City Blues, his largely unheralded classic of postmodern literature. Edited by Kerouac himself, Book of Blues is an exuberant foray into language and consciousness, rich with imagery, propelled by rythm, and based in a reverent attentiveness to the moment. "In my system, the form of blues choruses is limited by the small page of the breastpocket notebook in which they are written, like the form of a set number of bars in a jazz blues chorus, and so sometimes the word-meaning can carry from one chorus into another, or not, just like the phrase-meaning can carry harmonically from one chorus to the other, or not, in jazz, so that, in these blues as in jazz, the form is determined by time, and by the musicians spontaneous phrasing & harmonizing with the beat of time as it waves & waves on by in measured choruses." —Jack Kerouac
