Visions of Cody is an experimental novel by Jack Kerouac. It was written in 1951–1952, and though not published in its entirety until 1972, it had by then achieved an underground reputation.

Visions of Cody is an experimental novel by Jack Kerouac. Since its first printing, Visions of Cody has been published with an introduction by Beat poet Allen Ginsberg titled "The Visions of the Great Rememberer. Visions of Cody is derived from experimental spontaneous prose inserts that Kerouac added to the original manuscript of On the Road in 1951–52

Jack Kerouac: Visions o. .has been added to your Cart. The largest and most ambitious book in this volume is "Visions of Cody" which Kerouac completed in 1952 but which was not published in full until 1972, three years after Kerouac's death.

Jack Kerouac: Visions o. This sprawling, maddening work celebrates Neal Cassady, here named Cody Pomeray, as well as Kerouac's own life. Cassady, named Dean Moriarty, was the travelling companion and main character of Kerouac, named Sal Paradise, in "On the Road"

Visions of Cody/Jack Kerouac. With The visions of the great rememberer/by Allen Ginsberg. Visions of Cody is a 600-page character study of the hero of On the Road, Dean Moriarty, whose name now is Cody Pomeray.

Visions of Cody/Jack Kerouac. I wanted to put my hand to an enormous paean which would unite my vision of America with words spilled out in the modern spontaneous method.

Visions of Cody book. I don't believe Kerouac wanted Visions of Cody to be read page by page and cover When Jack Kerouac typed out On The Road it was on an endless scroll of paper, as if to indicate that he was writing on an endless path of paper about being "on the road". It was a wild concept, but the result was a somewhat structured work about wanderlust and all its wonders.

Completed in 1952, Visions of Cody was not published in full until 1972, three years after Kerouac’s death. Perhaps the most experimental of all his books, it is the other masterpiece drawn from the experiences and encounters behind On the Road, centered on an impassioned and hallucinatory portrait of his friend and idol Neal Cassady, here reimagined as Cody Pomeray.

What I'm beginning to discover now is something beyond the novel and beyond the arbitrary confines of the story. What I'm beginning to discover now is something beyond the novel and beyond the arbitrary confines of the story. I'm making myself seek to find the wild form, that can grow with my wild heart. because now I know MY HEART DOES GROW. -Jack Kerouac, in a letter to John Clellon Holmes Written in 1951-52, Visions of Cody was an underground legend by the time it was finally published in 1972.

Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1922, the youngest of three children in a Franco-Canadian family

Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1922, the youngest of three children in a Franco-Canadian family. He attended local Catholic and public schools and won a football scholarship to Columbia University in New York City, where he met Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs. His first novel, The Town and the City, appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, first published in 1957 and memorializing his adventures with Neal Cassady, that epitomized to the world what became known as the Beat generation and made Kerouac one of the most controversial and best-known writers of his time.

"What I'm beginning to discover now is something beyond the novel and beyond the arbitrary confines of the story. . . . I'm making myself seek to find the wild form, that can grow with my wild heart . . . because now I know MY HEART DOES GROW." —Jack Kerouac, in a letter to John Clellon Holmes

Written in 1951-52, Visions of Cody was an underground legend by the time it was finally published in 1972. Writing in a radical, experimental form ("the New Journalism fifteen years early," as Dennis McNally noted in Desolate Angel), Kerouac created the ultimate account of his voyages with Neal Cassady during the late forties, which he captured in different form in On the Road. Here are the members of the Beat Generatoin as they were in the years before any label had been affixed to them. Here is the postwar America that Kerouac knew so well and celebrated so magnificently. His ecstatic sense of superabundant reality is informed by the knowledge of mortality: "I'm writing this book because we're all going to die. . . . My heart broke in the general despair and opened up inward to the Lord, I made a supplication in this dream."

"The most sincere and holy writing I know of our age." —Allen Ginsberg

Yeah, this one is for the die-hards. I love Kerouac, but there so much of Cody that is just speed-induced gibberish. First 100 pages--GOLD. Frisco: The Tape--interesting for anyone into the beats. Imitation of the Tape--gloopy gloop dooferey doo goofing if he wants to (any apparently he really wanted to). Joan Rawshanks--vintage Jack. But once Jack gets the goof out of his system, the last 100 or so pages are dynamite, like On The Road in psychotic fast forward, featuring some of the greatest lines Ti Jean ever wrote.

It took me a couple reads to really get into this one, but now I can't stop. I find myself going back and re-reading memorable passages over and over, sometimes aloud to hear the rythym and beat of the words. It's not my favorite (that'd be either Tristessa or Desolation Angels), but it's definitely the most fascinating.

But, yeah, it's for the die-hards.

I was really looking forward to this book. I wanted to see Kerouac's vision of his best friend. How he really felt about Neal Cassady and how their relationship was when the book focused on him. I was gravely disappointed. One section is "imitation of the tape" and that just makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Another section rattled on and on and made no connection to "visions of cody" whatsoever. I quit reading with 100 pages to go. I'll go back and finish but it's not his best work.

Many don't know this book was an alternate version of "On the Road " according to Kerouac. Reading it under this context was interesting and enjoyable.

At first he loses you. There is no connection. Than towards the end of the book it starts to make some sense.
Skrimpak
Hey, its Jack Kerouac who has an unusual style of writing for the most part. Such a unique way of expressing himself in such a personal manner.
Just a fabulous piece of writing!
Geny
Beautiful book. Seller was very helpful!

I'm a Kerouac fan, but this isn't his best in my opinion.
"Visions of Cody" is a classic and "required reading" for all Kerouac lovers and a study in writing for all "writer hopefuls."
