  Article:   WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS DREAMING TO THE END OF DEATH.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  In this paper, I will propose a very descriptive analysis of The Land of the Dead, as it appears in My Education. A book of dreams by Willliam S. Burroughs. Being a mythical modernist aspect which this volume shares with a similar book signed by Jack Kerouac, another beatnik author who published a dream diary, the recurrent mentioned oneiric space presents some features I will try to discuss, regarding an urbanistic dystopian topography.

Keywords: William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, beat generation, dream, dystopia.
