Does not a novel make.
he was more based than you will ever be
>>21801667Can’t argue wit dat.
Men always shit on Sylvia Plath while reading this garbage
He looks like a hideous animatronic. A character from the Dark Crystal or something.
i dropped factotum when he talks about how he didn't wiped his ass good enough and left a trail of shit on his bed. either it was metaphorically or literally, i didn't care. it was just enough of this hack for me.some of his poems are good, i must admit.
>>21801663Had to make a cope thread after getting BTFO’d in the other one, eh little guy?
>>21801667>>21802966It's true though. Only a borderline illiterate, juvenile, retarded baboon could find his work even remotely attractive.
>>21802966This thread was made before yours. You're genuinely retarded
>>21801794That's how you distinguish men from failed, alienated apes. If a man tells you how much he relates to and appreciates Bukowski, you know you have a disgusting specimen in front of you and you ought to run away. In the sea of authors they could attach their despair to, they chose the most repulsive one. Just leave them to rot!
>>21803025My biggest gripe with Bukowski is that he forever solidified the conception that to be "working class" you must write like a caveman. Jack London is the actual proletarian hero; a working man who also had a big heart and a sharp mind. A REAL man.
>>21802999>>21803003Cope detected. Also, source?
>>21803261the bait is getting stale
>>21803268>attempts to call out bait >copes instead
He's living proof that you can push shit hard enough and publishers will take it.
>>21801663A thread died for this.

when I look back now at the abuse I took from her I feel shame that I was so innocent, but I must say she did match me drink for drink, and I realized that her life her feelings for things had been ruined along the way and that I was no mare than a temporary companion; she was ten years older and mortally hurt by the past and the present; she treated me badly: desertion, other men; she brought me immense pain, continually; s he lied, stole; there was desertion, other men, yet we had our moments; and our little soap opera ended with her in a coma in the hospital, and I sat at her bed for hours talking to her, and then she opened her eyes and saw me: “I knew it would be you,” she said. then hse closed her eyes. the next day she was dead. I drank alone for two years after that.
>>21802652>some of his poems are good, i must admit.Eh, most of them are barely passable. They're Rupi Kaur poems for alcoholics.
>>21803025No. Bukowski is a healing force. so many times you say, how has he not suicided? He just kept going and still wrote poems, in a twisted way, a very strong and inspirational guy
>>21802999you sound like a pseud redditor
>>21803074he was a good writer though
>>21804862>No. Bukowski is a healing force.Yes, and women can't understand it. I guess because they don't poop.Scatological humor is probably the world's oldest strain of comedy. It deserves a sacred place in any summary of the human condition, and only the noblest souls a really capable of grappling with the intricacies of the art-formAristophanes, for example, in his Assemblywomen does a sublime routine about Praxagora's constipated husband, stumbling around at night—his boots and clothes having been stolen by Praxagora who's made off to the Assembly—trying to find a place to take a shit. Hunched over, after having finally evacuated the blockage on his neighbor's doorstep, he has nothing but his wife's shawl to wipe with. Praxagora returns from the assembly to find her shawl streaked with yellow. THIS is superb comedy.
>>21804998I agree scat humour is terrible but you can't hold it against the perpetrators, Mozart for instance
>>21805009no, i think it's unironically great.There's a book about the commedia dell'arte written by the very learned Ducharte, wherein he notes in France the only people who held moral objections to it's performance tended to be the middle classes; the vulgar sensibilities of the lower classes and the upper classes wrapped around and met each other. In other words, the midwit meme is very real, and only midwits can't appreciate this fundamentally human comedy. pic related is the administration of an enema
Literary troll.Don't try, just flow, so liquid shit comes out of you.
