"The very existence of poetry should make us laugh. What is it all about? What is it for?"
“El subtítulo ‘Modelo para armar’ podría llevar a creer que las
diferentes partes del relato, separadas por blancos, se proponen como piezas permutables.”
"real (literary)" -- funny declaration of self-awareness, my friend!There is a third Kerouac, the biographical one, alas.As you know, Kerouac was very important to me, an inspiration. As a writer. As a person, he was often rotten: covered up a murder, refused to recognize the daughter he fathered, disparaged homosexuals but had sex with men, and on and on.His writing was wildly uneven -- but that's OK, because we judge writers by their best writing. Kerouac wrote some of the best paragraphs and lines of the 20th century.
