Against the American Dream : Essays on Charles Bukowski.
by [Charles Bukowski] Harrison, Russell.

Publisher Information:
Black Sparrow, Santa Rosa: 1994.

A Fine, tight unread copy. For Russell Harrison, Charles Bukowski was a "social lyricist" a proletarian poet who saw life-on-the-job in the United States as deadening, demoralizing, yet also the stuff of art. In this collection of essays on Bukowski's poetry and fiction, Harrison is at his most original when tracing influences on the artist's work (from the Surrealists to Jackie Gleason) and when offering us Buk as the anti-Ben Franklin (that is, as the man who defined success as refusing the American Dream). Harrison offers up the first extensive in-depth critical assessment of the literary efforts of Bukowski.
