Dissatisfaction of the Character ‘Sal Paradise’ in Jack Kerouac’s 'On the Road'
Jack Kerouac is a pioneer member of Beat movement which rejected materialism and consuming society and asserted a new set of values. In this article Jack Kerouac’s dissatisfaction of the contemporary society in his novel titled On the Road will be examined. The focus will particularly be on the dissatisfaction of the main character, Sal Paradise, who is in fact Jack Kerouac himself. Sal Paradise can only settle down for a few months in a place, just to earn a few dollars in order to be able to travel to the next destination. When at home, he is allured by the road, but when on the road, he needs to return home. He cannot reach happiness and fulfillment in either case. This unhappiness, symbolically, is the dissatisfaction of the contemporary society.

Sal Paradise, Beat movement, dissatisfaction, motion, contemporary society.
