Bio Series — Charles Bukowski   Leave a comment

This is a post from early November 2008 on one of my favorite poets. Something about his earthiness that I love. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

bukowski052This week I will be doing a two-hour biographical piece at the college on the quintessential counterculture icon and outsider to the poetry world, Charles Bukowski. There are a lot of reasons why I chose Bukowski, not the least of which is his frankness in expressing the truth.  I will not be reading his poetry but will make use of videos and recordings of Bukowski and others talking about and reading his poetry. I will only read a bio poem.
