The Scripture of the Golden Eternity by Jack Kerouac
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Emptiness and fullness. Life and death. Nothing and everything. The Scripture of the Golden Eternity by Jack Kerouac is all of those things, and of course none of those things. The book was inspired by a fainting spell, but through sixty-six prose poems, Kerouac tries to explore the vast nothingness of the universe.
This collection, like some of Kerouac's other work, is deeply influenced by Buddhism and other religions. It lets the reader go with Kerouac on an exploration of what our place in this world is, and how everything can be so vast and so small at the same time.
Anyone who enjoys any of Kerouac's other work will be interested in reading this. It's better to approach this book while in a contemplative mood, so if your ready for a spiritual adventure, get on board.
