I thought I'd rescoop this article to comment on how, though I do think it is a clever innovative way to share your work, I strongly believe that Bukowski would hate this article. His opinion on writing was very specific, he thought one shouldn't force themselves to write for commercial reasons.

I found this review of one of his novels, "Women". The person who wrote it doesn't much fancy Charles.

I can not even describe how interesting I find this post! I think it is very cool to be able to see the connections with some of the women from his life and how they show in his poetry. I definatley recognize certain muses from poems I've read by him.

Charles spent much of his life being drunk and living in poverty. A lot of people talk about how his writing was directly influenced by his life and whether he should be considered a poet based on his writing style and "overdone" content dealing with women and society.

Barfly (1987)

Barfly (1987) | Life and Poetry of Charles Bukowski | Scoop.it
Directed by Barbet Schroeder. With Mickey Rourke, Faye Dunaway, Alice Krige, Jack Nance. Henry Chinaski never cared for the American dream, the thought of needing to become 'something' and fit into the system disgusts him...

sydneyscutt's comment, June 21, 2012 4:46 PM
Barfly is a movie based on Charles' life and his alter ego character from his novels, Henry Chinaski. He is played by Mickey Rourke in the film and Bukowski himself actually makes a silent cameo as well. Fun fact: this movie is mentioned in the more recent movie "Precious".
