Amassed from five notebooks, the piece of writing that has been presented by the name of Old Angel Midnight, which is an uninterrupted prose poem spans around the years 1956-59, which as said was a period of time when Kerouac had wrapped up himself in Buddhist conjecture. Out of the ordinary, every now and then ridiculous indications to religion are basically found all the way through the book. As is written by the author of the book, “this holy and all universe is a wonderful white wild power, why, hell, should, heaven, interfere, words, waiting, flesh, sure, I know . . .” (Kerouac, p. 32). At the same time as it seems superfluous to call whatever thing by Kerouac “spontaneous,” the well known detractor and dramatist Charters points out that Kerouac though up this piece of his work as a drawing of his subconscious, “without the end or narrative direction” for which his novels are usually fumbled about for.
Consequently all the more unrestrained, he goes on playing around with words, puns, pleasures in put together sounds, discovers new-fangled words and puts in far-off ones more or less at random. This makes the book somehow even more likeable. Similar to Kerouac’s other documents; this piece of work was kept away from being published till the time that his widow has died. For this reason we can say that maybe at the time that it was written it would have been considered a real tentative “breakthrough,” but for now it is a bit worn off, but still likeable (Kerouac, p.1-89).
In the light of the above discussion we can hereby culminate that the narrative written by Jack Kerouac known as Old Angel Midnight was written as an experiment by the author and somehow he has succeeded in it by writing down everything that he had on his mind.
