The Dirty Old Man Complex: Finding Charles Bukowski's Place in the Literary Canon by Abbey Flower

Subject

English

Description

The goal of my project was to highlight a relatively unknown poet, Charles Bukowski, and bring him in conversation with the literary canon. While Bukowski himself had no intention or desire of becoming part of literary history, his groundbreaking texts that were written with honesty and vulgarity should be considered for the canon. To determine his worthiness in the canon, it is important to study a wide range of his work and to directly examine those of his poems that most closely follow his particular style and subject matter.
