Poetry and influences
When Jack Kerouac moved into New York City after getting a scholarship to Colombia University he liked how he discovered jazz when he walked down the streets which probably was one of his most influence in his poetry. He also went to church a lot after his older brother died and he wrote many poems that resembled of him being in church. Most of Jack Kerouac poetry was beat poetry. Which was over how everyone wanted to have a perfect home and life but in reality it wasn't, while living in the 1950's.
