Out of the countless movements that came along the literary scene, beat poetry turned out to be one adopting a more rock and roll attitude. Backing the rebellious and non-conformist movement was Kerouac, who coined the term " beat generation " as he pertains to the followers of the scene. Much of his reputation rests on his first two journals and these selections lifted from his spiral notebook. It gathered logs from 1947 to 1954 where he poured ideas and private thoughts. reading on you'll notice his obsession with daily word counts and his periodic phrase of self-doubt lamenting, "I know that I should never have been a writer." – Charmaine Z. Chanco
